About

Clairede Groot Photographe Professionnelle Grenoble

Who am I?

I have always been fascinated with photography. I love photographing moments in time, whether it’s an intimate family memory or a moment that captures an athlete’s passion and dedication to their sport.

Capturing a person’s passion and personality, takes time - it cannot be rushed. Before the photo shoot, I meet with my client, to get to know them, to find out what interests them and, ultimately, to have them open up in front of the camera.

During the shoot, I take the time to make my client relax in front of the camera. I change outfits, backgrounds, props and positions to create a diverse collection of photos my client will love.

Once the shoot is finished, the real work begins. The finest photos from the shoot are selected and each photo is completely retouched and finished in a style that enhances the mood of the photo.

I pride myself on creating photos of exceptional quality and this approach to portrait photography, lends itself to photos that reflect a person’s inner beauty and a result that astounds.

My journey

Originally from Australia, I started photographing professionally in 2006, specialising in sports action photos. I quickly progressed into sports portraits and classic portraiture before moving to France in 2013.

I quickly fell in love with France and the new opportunities that awaited me, starting my French photography business in 2014. Based in Tullins, Isère, and serving the Grenoble Metropole and Pays Voironnais, I am one of the few sports portrait specialists in the Rhône-Alpes region and have had the pleasure of photographing athletes at all levels – from amateurs to world champions and Olympic athletes.

I am a member of the GNPP, the Groupement National de la Photographie Professionnelle, the French association of professional photographers.

Completely bilingual, I am happy to photograph clients in English or French.

Please take a look at my portrait and sports portrait portfolios and please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss how I can help you bring out your passion and your personality.
