Gil Tirlet is a self made photographer. He started to develop a passion for photo shooting ten years ago. As he says: “I just try to capture the emotions to keep a record of the minute being.
Then I can share it trough time. I guess that it is the best way to tell a story, focusing on people, familiar or unknown.”
He works with two Nikon bodies, one D5 and one D810 plus an Hasselblad 503CX (argentic films) and one Leica Q. The objectives he like the most are the 105 mm f/2.8, the 24-70 mm f/2.8, the 70-200 mm f/2.8 and of course the 50 mm f/1.4.
According to him, composition and authenticity of the scene are the keys. That’s why he focuses on instinctive photography .
He definies himself as a “simple witness”, his wish being to share the emotions he feels.
