Regard d'auteur

Octobre rose 2021 & les photographes Regard d'auteur

This year, Regard d'auteur proposes its first charity photo project on the occasion of pink October. The community of professional photographers is mobilizing to create volunteer portraits of women all over France and Belgium! Each person photographed will receive a beautiful retouched portrait and will make a donation, of the amount of her choice, which will be realized on an online kitty. The money collected will be donated in full to one or more associations working for breast cancer research.

Making portraits as part of Pink October

Breast cancer affects nearly 60,000 women per year in France. It is the most common and deadliest cancer in women. As part of Pink October, professional photographers are joining forces to create beautiful portraits, which will raise donations for research. The images created will also be used as a communication medium to encourage preventive breast cancer screening and thus help reduce the number of people with the disease.

A collaborative photo project on the occasion of Pink October

Many professional photographers are in solidarity with this photo project on the occasion of Pink October. They are all craft photographers and have decided to support the Pink October movement in their own way by putting their know-how at the service of this cause. They will volunteer to take hundreds of portraits of women throughout France and Belgium.

Every professional photographer can participate and contribute their ideas to create a photo project all together, in a collaborative way.
An exchange group has been set up on Facebook: Pink October | Photographers in Solidarity

The Pink October 2021 photo project & Regard d'auteur photographers

The " Pink October & Regard d'auteur photographers " photo project will take place throughout France and Belgium. They will then be broadcast on the website, on social networks as well as in the press.

The mini photo shoots will be conducted in early October, from 1 to 10 October 2021 inclusive, depending on the availability of each photographer.
The retouched portraits of women photographed will be available on from Monday, October 18, 2021.

The type of portraits created on the occasion of Pink October 2021

The portraits made will be portraits of women " topless ", that is to say, without wearing clothing above the navel.

The chest may be apparent or hidden:
- by the woman's hands,
- by the hands of her man/wife for photos as a couple,
- by an accessory such as a cloth headband or a hat, for example

The "topless" is desired for the coherence of the images as a whole, but not mandatory: if a person really does not wish to be naked on the upper body, she may quite make a portrait as well!

The photographed women will sign an authorization of publication of the image allowing to communicate the realized portrait on the website, on the websites of the photographers, on the websites of the partners as well as in the press and on the social networks. Any use of these images will of course be made in the respect due to each woman photographed and the images will not be used without the consent of the persons photographed.

Processing and back-planning

From September 20 to 30:
> Each woman who wishes to take her portrait as part of Pink October books her session by email indicating the photographer she has chosen (by email to [email protected])
> The photographer concerned will contact the person to confirm the place and time of the appointment

From October 1 to 10:
the photo shoot is done on site on the day

From October 18:
> each person photographed discovers their photos from October 18 on regardauteur. com

The photographers' specifications

Pink October 2021 and the Regard d'auteur photographers

Each volunteer photographer will take portraits of women according to the specifications decided in a collaborative way

> on a single day of shooting: no later than October 10, 2021. Only one location will be used: in a photo studio, at home or at another location of your choice.

> The portraits will be topless (no clothing on the upper body) women portraits, in color or black and white, with the aim of raising awareness of breast cancer screening.
The women who volunteer to pose will be free to choose with the photographer whether or not to hide their breasts, to stand or sit, etc.

> The objective for each photographer is to create a series of coherent images: only one portrait will be selected per person photographed. The same place and the same light will bring coherence to the different portraits created by the same photographer.
Regard d'auteur will thus be able to highlight a professional community with varied styles.

NB: kitsch or vulgar images will not be accepted: keep it simple, elegant, modern, express your sensitivity to reach the general public and raise awareness of breast cancer screening. Avoid frames, accessories or other artifices that could quickly give a "déjà vu" to your images.

The photographers who support this event are also invited to involve professional makeup artists and hairdressers located near them if they wish, to offer a beauty treatment to the women who will be photographed.

> Following the photo shoots, a donation will be sent by each woman photographed, directly to the online fund indicated below in the page. All donations collected will go in equal parts to two associations fighting against breast cancer. No sales may be made by a photographer or partner as part of this operation: additional sales of photos are not permitted.

Les partenaires d'octobre rose 2021 & les photographes Regard d'auteur

Who is behind Sila.graphic?

We are happy and proud to introduce our first partner: the Graphic Designer sila.graphic

Sila.graphic designer pink october author's gaze

Pink October 2021 designer and photographers Author's Gaze

Hello, I'm Laurha!
Graduated from a master 2 in Communication and Strategic Marketing option Graphic Design, I wanted to put my skills at the service of companies and individuals in order to offer them an identity to their image.
So naturally, in January 2020, the desire to undertake pushed me to create Sila graphic, a company based on graphic creation, but also on support via training and coaching.

But then why this name?

Originally Polish, I decided to inscribe my family history in Sila, which means Strength of character. A name that resonates as a matter of course in every project in my life. And why not in every project you will do in yours with me.
A strong name for a company with strong values. Passion, boldness and confidence are the rhythms of my core business today.
