Fashion Photographer and Founder of Lumiere London
Born in Spain, Carlos Lumiere was greatly influenced at a young age by his father's work as a photographer. In 1989, after studying architecture, Carlos moved to Miami to work as photographer for a Spanish press agency. And it was here, amidst Miami's Beach culture boom, that Carlos decided to devote his career and life to high-fashion photography.
His devotion to photography jettisoned him to countless cities around the world to live and work, allowing Carlos to develop a stunning and diverse portfolio. Carlos helped some of the largest names in fashion to capture the images that best reflected their brands and campaigns while assisting on shoots for Vogue Italia during two years, and it's here where he developed the connections to venture out on his own.
His photos are best known for blending classic lines with luscious colours and textures. His style is rich, emotive and dynamic. It's these elements which attract high-profile fashion designers, advertising campaigns and magazines to work with him, including but not limited to: Harrods, Hackett, Vivienne Westwood, Royal Ascot, Lóreal, Balanciaga, Lanvin and Zenga; Harper's Bazaar, Elle, FHM, GQ and Icon magazine.
Carlos now divides his time between Lumiere London, which is home to three multi-function spaces which, after only one year have hosted clients ranging from BBC to Ralph Lauren; managing his own magazine, Fashiopolis; and searching for his next great shoot.
