    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.
