This year for the Cannes Festival, I’ve been to Cannes only with my agency press, so during the day I have to do some Paparazzi shot between the Martinez Hotel and The Martinez Beach.
If you don’t know Cannes, The Martinez Hotel is the hotel where most of the celebrities are staying and getting ready before the red Carpet! The reason is there are many brands there, some jewelers (Chopard, De Grisogono), designers (Alberta Ferretti..), make up, hair dresser (L’oreal) etc
So during the day I’m looking for some celebrities around the croisette, and one day I saw Chantel eating at the restaurant. I m really not confortable with the paparazzi job, and feel uncomfortable to shoot people when it’s not a rendez-vous. So this time I didn't shoot her and let her some privacy, but really want to organize a shoot with her.
After some research, I found Chantel Publicist, and after being in touch with her, she links me up with her manager. It’s how I’ve been able to shoot Chantel at the Martinez.
