Why B&P ?
It’s the result of a common friendship and photo productions for more than 20 years all around the globe that Patrick James Michel & Bernard Rouffignac joined their artistic forces to create B&P.
This is a meeting of 2 visions speaking the same language about the world of the automobile: the vision of a car photographer recognized by his peers combined with the vision of a fashion, advertising and art photographer.
This new vision makes it possible to include the automobile in urban landscapes or to discover new places associated with different photographic techniques (digital& analog photography and traditional processes of the 19th century) in order to represent aesthetically, and originally the car in an association with the modern woman and man.
