Construction was deeply familiar to Luca, learning to master and photograph every aspect as he followed his father’s work as an architect.
Beyond construction, technical photography was a natural calling for Luca Delachaux, who would also specialise in art reproduction. This technique consists of producing a facsimile by photographing a work under extremely precise lighting conditions.
At the same time, Luca fell in love with analogue photography. Without access to a laboratory which could meet his demands for quality and the services he wanted, he went on to open his own structure.
The laboratory expanded and upgraded with the acquisition of cutting-edge equipment, allowing it to meet the increasingly specific needs of its clients. FineArt printing for photographers and galleries is now one of the Atelier Delachaux photograpgie’s key assets, combining art and colorimetry management.
In 2016, Atelier Delachaux Photographie expanded and moved into the centre of Lausanne, where the photography studio, the chemical darkroom and the digital laboratory could finally be brought under the same roof and offer a warm, welcoming space for clients.
In 2017, Atelier Delachaux Photographie joined the family of companies providing training for students taking a CFC diploma in photography.
In 2020, Delachaux became a limited company. The following year, the photographer Rui Rodrigues was hired part time as a laboratory technician.
Currently, the company is training its second apprentice, David Domingues.
