Hugo B. Lefort Montreal

"With a background in theater and cinema, I always try to have, as a subtext, the vulnerability of people in my images.

I don't like fixed situations. So, a successful image, for me, is a photo that tells several stories. From the light, the direction of the model, the artistic direction...

In my projects, I try to look for the precise moment when time stops to give way to silence, to the eye of the storm."

As a well-established professional portrait, lifestyle, reportage photographer, Niels Busch has traveled on all continents with jobs and personal projects. People enjoy his social skills, whether he speaks Danish, English or some of the few words in a number of local languages he has learned throughout his life, or whether it is just body language that is needed to make himself understood.

He loves photographing people. As a portrait and lifestyle photographer you don't usually have a long time to get to know each other, especially when you are dealing with busy people, such as politicians, business leaders, famous people or top sports athletes, or as a completely different tribe of people from a desolate area in a desert on the other side of the earth. As a photographer, you quickly learn to connect with people.

Getting people to relax in front of a camera can be a challenge, but Niels loves that part. When you genuinely show interest in your subjects, a positive connection forms naturally, creating a harmonious atmosphere, akin to sweet music. This connection translates into a relaxed experience for people, and is reflected in the quality of the images. This aspect is crucial, especially when these photos are intended for purposes such as magazine covers, year-long calendars, or advertising campaigns.
