Michel Comte - Photographer




Michel Comte was born in 1954 in Zurich, Switzerland. The professionally trained art
restorer approached photography autodidactically.
In 1978 Comte receives his first
international assignments: advertising photographs for the Paris-based fashion houses
of Ungaro and Chloé


1979 Comte moves to Paris.

Work for the American Vogue lead him to New York in 1981; later, he takes up
residence in Los Angeles. "I always have to live on the edge", Comte states on his
restless persona. "If I no longer have a sense of risk, I immediately move on. I probably
inherited that from my grandfather." (Swiss aviator Alfred Comte)

Within a few years, Michel Comte evolves to one of the most sought-after fashion and
magazine photographers in the world. For Vanity Fair and Vogue, he portrays numerous
celebrities from the world of art, movies and entertainment, ranging from Julian
Schnabel, Jeremy Irons and Demi Moore to Mike Tyson.

Comte's advertising clients include famous names such as Gianfranco Ferré, Dolce &
Gabbana, Armani, Nike, Versace, Revlon, Mercedes-Benz, Lancome etc.


In addition to portraits and fashion photography, Comte has also increasingly moved
towards photo-reportage. On photo assignments for the International Red Cross, for
instance, he has traveled to war zones and unstable areas in Iraq, Afghanistan and
Bosnia.
