"A Hurrell portrait is to the ordinary publicity still what a Rolls-Royce is to a roller skate,''  Esquire Magazine 1936

From George Hurrell in 1930's Hollywood to Studio Harcourt in Paris today, classic cinema portraits evoke glamour, grace and character.

The authentic look of Made in Hollywood spotlights with Fresnel lenses is unmistakable. Finely controlled and shaped, traditional Tungsten lamps emit a smoother spectrum of light than any other artificial source. The crisp light closely resembles sunlight and makes skin come alive. Which is why despite the inconvenience compared to more modern technology, Film makers still use them today.
