Hailing from Quebec City, Charles-Etienne moved to Montreal ten years ago to study at the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema and fell in love with the city's ever-growing art scene.
After directing short films, music videos and web projects, he found himself particularly drawn to the treatment of colour in moving pictures. He since then has been working as a full time digital colourist in advertising, television and film.
Photography has always been a hobby, a creative skill and an inspiration for him. When travelling, Charles trained his eye to capture people's sensibility, grasp the meaning of an instant moment and tell its story through his images.
But it wasn't until he found his passion for motorcycles and its lifestyle that everything came together.
After photographing a couple of years on two wheels, meeting and befriending amazing riders and exploring new countries behind his handlebars... RoadShutter was born.
