Eric Snell - Tutor
"It was during his time at Grange House the original Guernsey College of Further Education, home for Art and Design (2006 - 2008), that Etienne started to develop his interest in photography.
From the outset Etienne was keen to strip the whole concept of portraiture down to its chassis. Gone are the soft-lit studio shots with dappled backdrop. Instead Etienne is looking to place his subject in familiar territory with the pub, the stairwell or living room bringing another layer of complexity to the final image.
This interest in social documentary photography has fuelled Etienne’s passion for the subject and has allowed Etienne to secure a wide range of freelance work."

"We organised a very special wedding in June on Guernsey and Etienne Laine was the photographer. Apart from being a very nice guy and a true professional he also took fabulous photographs.
I highly recommend him for your next event."
Bella and Matthew - Client
"Etienne did the photography for our wedding in June. Would really recommend him. He captures the day without making it solely about photos - something that we were really keen on! Got some great snaps whilst barely noticing him photographing."
Gill and Scott - Client
"Thank you so much for the beautiful photographs you have taken for us. Scott and I have just looked through them and are delighted with the end results! They were exactly what we were hoping from our wedding photographs. We love the natural and effortless look to them and they capture the mood of the day brilliantly. Thank you for being so flexible with the arrangements and we were extremely impressed that you captured our wedding day without imposing upon it. You have given us fabulous photos to remember our day by and we have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone! Thank you once again."
