  • Samantha KING

    Journalist

    My career as a journalist began in the UK in 1987, starting on a local weekly newspaper and progressing to national dailies such as The Times and The Daily Telegraph. After moving to France permanently in 1998 working for 24-hour rolling news channel EuroNews, I gradually turned my hand to translation. I now have clients ranging from scriptwriters and poets to bearings manufacturers and waste management operators! Much of my work is in the field of lifestyle and luxury, making me right at home at Blush where I can use my skills as a translator and a journalist as well as my knowledge of the sector.

  • Jean-Luc SCOTTO

    Photographer

    Although he studied as an engineer at the Vincennes school of public works, in the 1980’s Jean-Luc Scotto changed career path and became a photographer. It turned out to be a good decision as he has since worked with such illustrious magazines as Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire (French editions), and on numerous advertising campaigns for leading brands including Louis Vuitton, Rochas, Delsey and Paco Rabanne.

  • Sarah JACKSON

    Journalist

    I began my career as a journalist in the UK in 1986 working on local newspapers as a reporter, sub-editor and editor. I moved to Paris in 1999 where worked at the International Herald Tribune before going freelance after the birth of my two children. Since then I've lived in Berlin, London and am now back in Paris having worked on various projects feature writing, proof-reading and translating including editing an English language version of the programme for the French Open at Roland Garros.  I now work mainly as a translator, but also write a tennis blog, www.encoreoncourt.blogspot.fr, in which I chronicle my attempts to play on all the public tennis courts in Paris.

  • Sandra FOURQUI

    Photographer

    After spending several years with tops models Claudia Schiffer and Estelle Lefébure, notably for works such as Memories and Estelle par Estelle, Sandra is brimming with photographic aestheticism and creativity. Her vision of fashion has won over not only magazines such as Tatler, French and L’Officiel, but also film personalities such as Mélanie Thierry, Laura Smet, Judith Godrèche, Benoît Magimel, Guillaume Canet and Sara Forestier. These days you are likely to spot her, camera in hand, backstage at the most eagerly awaited musical events or those of the agency Contour Getty Images, including the latest Brigitte Bardot retrospective. An anthem to a slightly rebellious glamour, her universe includes polar beauties and Hollywood celebrities. She particularly values the human encounters she experiences during the photo shoots she conducts with the same unrelenting energy as she devotes to all her projects.

  • Franck ROUSSEAU

    Photographe / contributor 

    Frank Rousseau is French-American. After settling in the United States more than 20 years ago, he now has one of the most sought after and prized posts in journalism – that of correspondent. And if we were to tell you that his daily chores running Blush’s Los Angeles bureau include interviewing stars, covering red carpets, film premiers and after-parties and travelling to the four corners of the world on the sets of the "majors", we think you would agree it is not surprising many envy Frank’s position. 

    And to top it all, he is a member of the prestigious Hollywood Foreign Press Association, in other words he is part of the Golden Globes jury. It is through such privileged access that Blush is able to fill its glossy pages with interviews with the most glittering, glamorous and current stars from the world of celebrities.
