There’s always a story, it’s only the medium that changes.

Capturing essence in still photography

As an avid traveler, Rene strives to bring a unique perspective to the images he takes.  Whether they’re man made structures or people, street art or nature, Rene seeks to find the extraordinary within the ordinary.

Set to motion with cinematography

Rene’s work with videography stems from his fascination with the art of story telling within a commercial. He loves the need for the story telling to be concise while including the important story elements into an inconceivably short time frame.

Just a few of the clients we've worked with

Rene Defayette Photography and Motion Cinematics has been so fortunate to work and collaborate with some really amazing companies and people. It’s always an incredible privilege to be able to tell their stories.

Rene Defayette has been capturing stories with his cameras since he was 12. Like any committed artist, he has pushed his boundaries of knowledge. Rene sees with an artist’s eyes and that vision is what allows him to capture the essence of the stories within the image.
