Jerome Pelletier was born in the French speaking part of Switzerland. At the age of 14 he discovered his father’s super 8 camera – a small oddly shaped 'state of the art' Bolex camera. The gadget intrigued him, as well as the opportunity it was offering. Thus began a life-long passion for creating unique and beautiful images.
In 1990 he started his professional career with the opening of Canal 1 Atelier Video in Bienne, the home of Swiss watches, with his friend and colleague Yvan Kohler.
After three successful years learning his craft, he decided to explore the world and came to Australia.
It didn’t take long for Jerome to fall in love with the beautiful Australian landscape, friendly people and relaxed lifestyle. And when, soon after arriving in 1994, he fell in love with his Australian wife Linda, his fate was sealed!
So in 1996 he decided to call Australia home and established himself in Melbourne becoming an official Aussie citizen a few years later. Aside from his award winning films, Jerome is most proud of his greatest production – his daughter Alisha.
In 1999 he founded Stepping Stone Films and joined the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) as an active member. Since then Stepping Stone Films has grown into a successful boutique production company and his talent as a Director of Photography has been recognised and acknowledged through more than 20 awards from the ACS.
