About me


Amelie Clements photographer in France and Switzerland - Prague

Amélie Clements

Born in France but raised within a travelers family, I have caught the travel bug quite early! To the question “where do you come from?”, I answer “I am French but I am a world citizen”.  I met my lovely Dutch man in Australia, and we are now married and we are living in Zürich, Switzerland, with regular trips to France or more exotic countries!

I have always been attracted to optics. How a camera works. Why a rainbow appears. Where a mirage comes from. So I did scientific studies and got my PhD in Optics for Astronomy, following my motto  « one’s feet on the ground and ones head in the stars». In parallel to this scientific understanding of image producing, I have developed a strong taste for the beauty of the images itself. Photography became more and more a passion and took more and more space in my life! I am now a wedding and family photographer based in Zürich!

I love…

  • Dreaming BIG and having plenty of projects in my mind
  • Traveling a lot
  • Sunday mornings, when my lovely husband cooks me plenty of waffles
  • Drinking a tomato juice in the airplane (but I cannot stand drinking this juice in other conditions…)
  • The cuddles of my two cats when I come home
  • People who often spare a kind thought for the others

I hate…

  • Lack of self-mockery
  • Selfish persons
  • Touching a plastic bag/unidentified floating object when I am swimming in the sea
  • Carrying my skis from the car to the ski lift
  • A meal without a yummy dessert

My approach to photography

I am in love with fun lovers and lovely families. I want to catch through my pictures the love between you both, the eyes of a parent on his child, the smile you have when you are in the arms of your partner, the tears of a husband at the first look… I am not interested in frozen pictures, but  in the intimate moments and the small details of YOUR unique story. You play guitar to your future baby? You are used to cook together every Sunday? The photo shoot should reflect your life.  No need of fancy tricks, just few accessories and your smiles are more than welcome!

If you like laughing, if you are not taking yourselves seriously and live however you want, well, then I think we have a perfect match and I will be more than happy to be your family or wedding photographer!

Where to find me

I am currently living in Zürich (Switzerland) so I can easily meet you in this area, or in any other part of Switzerland. I also often travel to France, especially to Paris or near Montpellier. So feel free to contact me for a photo-session!

I have the great privilege of being both witness and storyteller. Intimacy, trust and intuition guide my work.

It is part of the photographer’s job to see more intensely than most people do. He must have and keep in him something of the receptiveness of the child who looks at the world for the first time or of the traveler who enters a strange country.
