"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 highly recommend working with Etienne for all aspects of Corporate Photography. Etienne is professional, talented and nothing is too much trouble. We look forward to working with Etienne on more Corporate shoots in the future.
Etienne came up to take some photos for us yesterday so we can update or website. He was efficient, unobtrusive and did a fantastic job all at a very reasonable price. Would highly recommend him to anyone who needs any photography work.

We have worked with Etienne on a number of website projects over the years at Indulge in Guernsey. He is always keen to understand the brief and works with us to find the best type of shots for each project. The end result is consistently a range of impressive high-quality photos to choose from. Photography is a key component of most websites and an area we like to leave to the professionals.
Etienne has been involved in a number of projects with us at LRD over the past few years and always brings a desire to get the perfect shot for the campaign we are producing. He always delivers the professional shots we require but also adds value to the project through his ideas. Highly recommend!

I use Etienne for all of my photography requirements, mainly for PR and profile purposes. Etienne is flexible, approachable and always makes people feel at ease and my clients always enjoy working with him. The supply of images is always swift and the standard is high.
Cleland & Co used Etienne to do the photography for our new website. Etienne captured the brief perfectly and we were thrilled with the outcome. The whole process from making the booking to receiving the final product was quick and easy. Etienne comes very highly recommended!
“We have used the services of Etienne Laine photography for corporate images and have been very pleased with the results. He knows just how to capture the professional, yet approachable, look and we will have no hesitation in using his services again.”
I love the feel of Etienne's work and my company Bonsai Group has used him on many occasions for shooting projects. In addition to slick photography and editing skills, he is a just a great guy to deal with throughout the process; particularly when discussing what one is trying to achieve - friendly, professional and just 'gets it'. Top chap, well recommended.
