Profession: Studio Manager


Like a hotel, a photographic studio works from morning to night. The studio director is there to anticipate all matters technical and material. He oversees the preparation of scenery, keeping one eye on the "toolbox", he watches, he listens. He knows the tricks of the trade. And he passes them on to future studio assistants. Alain Paret is our guide at Rouchon Paris.
