Hi! My name is Charles-Etienne Pascal.
I take pictures of motorcycles, the humans who ride them... and the beautiful places they take us.

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.
Press Trips / Motorcycle Influencer
I have official experience and am available for press trips to test ride your new motorcycle models or gear. While riding, I safely capture my real experience with high quality GoPro pictures and videos that I carefully edit and retouch for social media purposes.
The result is an authentic biker's perspective accompanied by a short review that other motorcycle riders can relate to and trust.
As of April 2018, my @roadshutter Instagram account has more than 16,000 organic followers that regularly like and comment on my posts.
The picture on the right-hand side was taken in Tenerife during the Harley Davidson SportGlide 2018 press trip back in January.
