Director, editor, writer
My name is Zakary BELAMY, I'm a French photographer working internationally with performers, models, live shows and celebrities in Europe, in the USA and most recently in Asia.
I grew up in France and Algeria (North Africa) and have since then been deeply influenced by both cultures. The richness and the tribulations of this experience and my adventurous childhood inspire creativity and strengthen of character.
My aesthetic sense is deeply inspired by great filmmakers such as James Cameron, Hayao Miyazaki, Paul Verhoven, John Woo, Alex de la Iglesia, John McTiernan, Mamoru Oshii, Tim Burton, Peter Jackson. They have taught me how to understand the geometries, framing, lighting, faces, acting, shadow, colors, mise-en-scene, special effects and the use of space.
Every piece of work created, mixes magically humor, sarcasm, glamour, cynicism, beauty and timelessness.
Filmmaking is my new activity hopefully to exploit my knowledge and experiences from 15 years of photography around the world.
