Matthieu Belin is a French photographer, established in Shanghai (China) since 2005. During more than 10 years, he refined his understanding of visuals working as Art Director mainly for EBEL (LVMH), internationally renowned Architect Christian de Portzamparc and the Parisian advertising agency AIR PARIS focusing on luxury brands. In China, he opened AIR PARIS Shanghai offices and took care of Yue Sai, the Chinese L’Oréal brand for 3 years.
In 2010, Matthieu created Ubiquity Photography to devote himself entirely to photography, so as to encapsulate his experience in the service of a unique photographic idea. Since then, his interest has shifted to Fashion photography. His work has been published in Vogue, GQ, VISION, Harper’s Bazaar Art, ELLE, ELLE MEN, LIFE Magazine, Surface, FIgaro Madame, Wallpaper and All Sports publications. He has worked with brands such as Adidas, Erdos, Yue Sai (l’Oréal), Li-Ning, Cartier, Mido, Clarks, Rado, Peuterey.
