MP Curtet is a husband and wife, photography/director team based in Los Angeles.
Marlyne and Patrick work in a symbiotic relationship and their combined talents add a unique depth and quality to their images. Their photographic skills and the emotive resonance of their partnership makes them storymakers with a cinematographic vision.
Patrick has been shooting professionally for over 30 years and after concentrating on sports and reportage photography, where he traveled to more than 76 different countries, he shifted his attention to automotive and lifestyle work. He focuses on proper technique and has an expertise in controlling the lighting, effects and/or other elements in order to control the scene. But he works to have these elements hidden and out of sight... as if they’re not even there.
Marlyne graduated from Peninghen Art School in Paris where she studied art and graphic design. She has her own graphic design studio, L.A. Creative Team, and has worked as an Art Director. Her graphic vision has played a crucial part in elevating the work to where it is today. Additionally, she also operates as the creative coordinator when the Curtet’s shoot lifestyle and automotive together. She ensures the styling, wardrobe, set design — every imaginable element of the scene — remains in line with the creative vision. Marlyne also acts as second photographer.
