Despite having to work from a distance, the collaboration with Florence Montmare was faultless and fluid at all times. As we looked for a photographer in the New York area who could do a group shoot of about 25 cancer researchers in East Hanover, which would be part of a global photo series including scientists from Basel, Mumbai and Shanghai, our choice easily fell on Florence. Her technical mastery and artistic flavor struck us a unique and we were fully convinced that she could render this difficult group shot in a strong manner, align it with our photo style and adjust her photo to the pictures that were already taken at other locations. The result met our high hopes. Florence not only captured a unique moment in our company’s history. Her picture looks natural and reflects the pride of our researchers, most of whom were part of the development of a novel cancer treatment, without exhibiting hubris nor false humbleness. I look forward to working with Florence again.
Florence is an artist and when you shoot with her you are creating art with her. We had a specific plan regarding the shots we were going for and we accomplished that plan but also so much more! Florence’s keen awareness and free imagination allowed for us to improvise and capture lots of moments that someone stuck on an agenda might miss. I felt that Florence captured my essence in her photos which I always hope for in a photo session and we had so much fun. I’m looking forward to shooting with her again.
I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the very talented and highly creative Florence Montmare. Specifically, she photographed the cover of my book “Inner Business” and shot surrounding portraits. I get an overwhelming amount of praise for the look of my book, and few people realize that the shot was an “accident” made possible by Florence’s quick eye and creative vision. She is a delight to work with, a professional through-and-through: a rare combination of strategic, structured and artistic. I highly recommend anyone to work with Florence and would gladly work with her again.
