Bertrand Exertier inspired by Disney

Véronique Cloutier as Cinderella, Ariane Moffatt as a good fairy godmother, Stéphane Rousseau as prince charming and Sonia Benezra as heir to Cruella: the photographer Bertrand Exertier had the idea of ​​transforming 13 Quebec stars into fantastic characters in the 2022 version.

From his arrival in Quebec from France 11 years ago, Bertrand Exertier gravitated towards the world of show business. It was as a researcher that he first knew how to create good relationships with local stars. He has worked on several large television sets, including the Gala Artis, The true nature and Star Academy. Then he slowly turned to the photo.

Ariane and Véro

This idea of ​​presenting, on Instagram, a series of 13 storybook characters interpreted by 13 artists came to him in large part from his meeting with Ariane Moffatt. Creative and always open to new experiences, the singer inspired her first photo sessions based on concepts imagined on the set of Star Académie.

“I really try to stand out with concepts,” explains the 32-year-old photographer who, among other things, took the photos of Masked singers. By contacting Véronique Cloutier first – whom I knew from having worked with her for Gemini – it gave my project credibility. She immediately found the idea “sick”! “

Véronique Cloutier thus became a Cinderella returning home by metro after an outing in the Village, Stéphane Rousseau, a prince charming losing control under the stroke of midnight, Ariane Moffatt, a fairy godmother owner of a shoe store on the Plaza St-Hubert, and Sonia Benezra, an Anita Darling who inherited the fashion empire from her former boss, Cruella.

This project is the first chapter of a trilogy for the photographer who has “hyper ambitious” projects that will affect Quebec, the rest of Canada and France.

A project with Céline Dion

With his concepts, he wants to establish himself in the community by showing people in the public people known as they are not used to seeing them. The photographer is already working on a “crazy, crazy, crazy” concept for Celine Dion.

“I have the perfect photo to return to residency,” he says. A concept in which we have never seen it and which would really work! I have no limit. I see my career as a ladder and I know that my work with Céline will take me even higher, will take me internationally and will give credibility to my work. ”

The photographer unveils three photos of the Disney project per week, until January 31, on his Instagram page: @bertexertier
