It’s not often that you get to see your photos showcased on 100 square meter posters around the star-studded Cannes Film Festival! But for red carpet cameraman and Nikon professional photographer, Stéphane Kossmann, it’s just one of the many perks of his job.

For over 20 years, Kossmann has been snapping celebrities – often off-guard – including the likes of Sharon Stone, Sean Penn, Nicole Kidman and Robert De Niro. We caught up with Stéphane at the recent world-renowned film festival, which ran late last month.

We chatted about how he captures a more candid side of A-list stars: you’ll rarely catch his subjects looking straight into the camera and he’s more likely to be photographing them as they get out of the car rather than on the red carpet. We also talked about the challenges of shooting at Cannes and how he manages to get his great shots in the busy environment of the two week event. Check out the video below:
