It is with great pain that dear friend, master photographer, and inspiration Marc Paris was tragically taken in a fatal plane crash while shooting in Turkey. Marc was a wonderfully generous man who inspired, educated and promoted artists of all kinds. He was the founder of FAB Studio in Nice, France, which provided a workspace for artists to collaborate, exhibit and promote their skills. He operated at a million miles a minute delivering cover shots of yachts to magazines worldwide, designing brochures for the top brokerages in Monaco and graciously offered those around him with lessons about print, editing, design and life. Marc would work 23.5 hours a day but always made time for friends and was prompt to offer his assistance when called upon. Quin and I arrived in Nice upon invitation from Marc to be evolved in branching the studio into video and managing the studios growing organization. Later Marc inspired us to create Q&K and continued to work closely with FAB Studio. As a friend and an amazing mentor Marc Paris will be missed.
This weekend FAB Studio will be hosting an Open House from noon – 9pm at 12 Rue Bavastro, Nice 06300 for all who would like to stop by and pay their respects to his great accomplishments.
