About me

My name is Pierre-Emmanuel, Loriental being an artist name that I have chosen in reference to my birthplace and my former international career in Europe and Asia.

Originally from Lorient, in beautiful Brittany (Celtic part of France), photography, arts and travel have been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. My travels have taken me to many parts of Europe and Asia as well as other locations around the globe, allowing me to photography the beauty of our world, its natural scenery, its people and its cities.

Thus, I have started my photography career through travel photography and fine art photography, first being published in magazines, newspapers and art books in France but also in the UK and in the USA where I was also regularly selling art prints to individuals and professionals willing to decorate their homes or offices, before heading towards offering photography services to families, entrepreneurs and small businesses to respond to growing enquiries I was receiving.

In addition to my photography career, I have been working for more than 10 years in the international business development and marketing field between France and Hong Kong, organizing operations and implementing decisions in countries such as Hong Kong, Mainland China, Japan, Korea and India for various French and foreign companies.

I am currently based in Rennes (France) where I offer my photography services to individuals and professionals while working at the same time on my own artistic projects.

I am also a photography educator since 2018, teaching photography and organizing group worskshops in Rennes through my own photography school named "Les Ateliers Photographiques de l'Ouest".
