Design Aglow Cinema: Meet Pascale Délé

As we kick off Day 2 of our Cinema Line Launch, we're excited to get to know Pascale Délé~

You shoot a wide variety of videos beyond just weddings. What is your favorite genre, and why?

I’d have to say that fashion videos are currently my favorite genre to shoot. I love the visual aesthetic, the precision of the shots, and the feelings it evokes. In the future I’d love to explore shooting a short movie, too! Something different than the wedding shorts I already provide now.

I, myself, am amazed by the diversity of clients that I have attracted. I believe that my personality is a huge part of this diversity. It has truly become part of my marketing strategy. I think that I am very easy going, I like people, and I tend to fit wherever I go. Due to this, one of my goals is to shoot a traditional wedding in Japan.

What’s in your gear bag?

I take the minimum amount of gear needed when I go on site for a wedding. I believe that the priority should be to be as discreet as possible during my client’s very special day!

It seems like you shoot with both natural and studio light, depending on the subject. Do you prefer one over the other?

I definitely prefer natural light. You just need to know how to tackle it. I have learned to use natural light in order to soften my pictures and give them the rendering I want. Studio light is much more delicate because you need to be very precise with your set-up and execution. In fact, studio lighting is so particular that when I do a shoot in a studio I am normally supported by a photography director.

What has influenced your personal style? How does that transfer into your videos?

I was born into a Caribbean tradition, so my family and close friends remain my main source of inspiration. Also, I am inspired by all of the different cultures that surround me on a daily basis. I cannot forget that I have also been influenced by many different cinematographers.

My style is constantly growing and changing. I really try to make my ideas, my thoughts, my dreams, my wills, and my feelings come to life. I truly believe that the options with shooting wedding videos is endless. It’s something you can create just the way you want, as long as you are open to constantly learning new things. There are no instructions, you just need to trust yourself and let your emotions lead you forward. 

 

Pascal Délé is a cinematographer and wedding filmmaker based out of the south of France. He has been working on both corporate and wedding videos for over three years. Pascal is constantly evolving in his work and prides himself in making that a priority in his business. It his believe that in order to become a successful business, it’s essential to mold your personal style in order to stand out from the crowd.

When I think of packaging and products for my brand, I think of high‑end pieces that will not only provide a remarkable experience for my clients, but also leave them with beautiful pieces for their home. I purchased Design Aglow's engagement guest book design a long time ago and have since created many for my couples to display at their wedding. Of course, they are always packaged in beautiful boxes and bags!

One of the great things about running your own business is that, in theory, us business owners get to “call the shots”. We make all the decisions big and small, such as whether we run our business full or part-time, how and why we set our price points, the products we offer, our ideal clients, the list goes on.

As a photographer based in Charleston, SC, summer is my busiest time of the year. So instead of vacationing elsewhere, I like to escape in my own city for a few days at a time. Given that Charleston won the 2016  “World’s Best City” award by Travel & Leisure, after being a top city for the past four years, there’s plenty to see and do and see as a guest in my own city!
