About Anacrusis Photography


Unstressed notes before the first downbeat... and my interpretation of what Bresson called photography's "decisive moment". For me, the moment to capture is just prior to one's resting face—a burst of authenticity you express before self-consciousness sets-in.


Anacrusis Photography provides high quality images to the performing arts community in Montreal.

“S'il n'y a pas d'émotion, s'il n'y a pas un choc, si on ne réagit pas à la sensibilité, on ne doit pas prendre de photo. C'est la photo qui nous prend.”

— Henri Cartier-Bresson



Etienne comes from a background in music, sociology, and business. Now, he brings his experience and expertise to photography and video for the performing arts community in Montreal.

In his spare time, Etienne loves biking long distances and singing with the Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir and the Orchestre Symhponique de Montreal.

The Approach

At Anacrusis, we like to cross-promote our clients' work with our own through blog posts, social media sharing and comments, behind-the-scenes previews, and more.

More than that, we help all of our clients get the most out of their images with suggestions on how to use them, when to share them, and how to keep the same quality throughout different media.
