Thierry Ameller describes himself as a citizen of the world. Early in his life, he decides to leave his native country to study Photography, Cinema & Television, in England. Exhibitions of his photographic work will be displayed at the Canon Gallery in Paris and the famous Photographer’ s Gallery in London (in 1978 he was the youngest photographer ever exhibited).

His thirst for new horizons will lead him to Caracas in Venezuela, and Miami in The United States of America where, as a full time advertising photographer, he will produce images for all major advertising agencies and for most reputable international clients. He will receive many awards for the quality of his work. He has also worked as a director of photography for full length movies and has directed television commercials.

In 2006,  he moves back to his own roots in the South of France and becomes a full time resident in Nice, mostly working for the Marine Industry.

A life long love for the sea, and a professional life dedicated to conceive a new visual and creative point of view with the privilege of living in the heart of the French Riviera, are the ingredients that give Thierry the ability to put his skills to the service of the Marine Industry, which undoubtedly contributes to offer beneficial results to fulfill its client's needs.

During the 40 year span of his professional life, he has been assigned more than 5000 different jobs, some with the maximum responsibility in directing large teams of technicians and models.

When the highest level of quality is required, and when experience does make the difference, Thierry Ameller, commited to deliver the best,  is always ready to shoot at a moment's notice. He will take the latest assignment with the same fervour, emotion and passion, as he did for the first one.


Thierry Ameller, esprit curieux et épris de liberté, quitte la France très jeune et part étudier la photographie et les métiers de l’audiovisuel en Angleterre. Ses premiers travaux seront exposés à la Photographer's Gallery de Londres et à la Galerie Canon de Paris.

Il poursuit sa carrière à Caracas au Venezuela et à Miami aux États Unis. Il y exerce sa profession de photographe spécialisé dans la publicité. Il réalisera de nombreuses campagnes pour de prestigieuses agences de publicité au profit de clients de renommée internationale. Plusieurs prix lui seront décernés pour la qualité de ses travaux.

Au Venezuela, au cours de sa vie professionnelle, il a réalisé plusieurs films publicitaires, et a également occupé les fonctions particulières de cadreur sous-marin et de directeur de la photographie pour des films de télévision et des clips vidéo musicaux.

Revenu en France en 2006 pour retrouver ses racines, il réside désormais à Nice. Son activité principale est centrée sur l’industrie de la Grande Plaisance qu’il a contribué à se développer grâce à ses images impressionnantes et innovantes. Une passion de toujours pour la mer, une nouvelle approche visuelle et créative, le privilège de vivre au cœur de la Riviera permettent à Thierry Ameller de mettre son talent au service de l’industrie Marine, dans le but de procurer des résultats bénéfiques à ses clients.

Il a réalisé pendant sa carrière plus de 5000 travaux d’une très grande variété ; certains d'entre eux ont exigé de lui un sens des responsabilités propre à assurer la maîtrise d’équipes de techniciens et la direction de nombreux mannequins.

L’expérience créant la différence, Thierry Ameller est toujours prêt à assumer son dernier engagement avec la même ferveur, la même émotion et la même passion qui l'animaient depuis son premier ouvrage.
