About Us



I am Faustin, and I am delighted to welcome you to my photography blog! 

It was December 2011 that I bought my first professional camera, I still remember vividly the feeling and the excitement for my new adventure I was about to start.

I quickly got prepared and went outside to shoot, it was a freezing winter but my excitement exceeded the fear of the cold.

From my shaky hands on my first night of shooting to now, it’s twelve whole years of experience, I still can’t believe the number of moments, people I met and lessons I learned along the way.

Fast forward, 12 years later, my work has been used by big companies like Shopify, Notion and Squarespace. I have captured the emotions of thousands of people in weddings, birthday parties, funerals and more…

With time I felt like documenting some techniques I learned along the way and that’s how Pichalab was born. Not only to share my knowledge but also to learn from others as I explore other aspects of photography and dig deeper on subjects. 

Join me on this journey as we embark on a quest to explore the photography world together. Happy shooting!
