Kuma-Eyes is a Photographic Consultancy, founded and run by Xavier Gautruche and Gilles Collignon, two seasoned photography professionals whose complementary professional backgrounds and experience allow them to focus on photographers and their photography in the editorial, documentary or corporate fields.
We work with photographers on their editing, the definition of their individual look and style, and their photographic signature. We also help them define or redefine their specialisation, – photo-journalism, corporate photography, documentary photography etc.
We help them to optimise their personal and professional potential through a « sales and marketing » approach to social networks.
By working on both content and form, we help photographers bring to life the work they want to create. We are with them from the development of the first ideas right through to the distribution of the finished .
A complete professional service.

As well as for professional photographers, we organise workshops and presentations in professional schools, companies and for groups of journalists and editors.
