My first name Nouar means probably nothing to you but actually it is interesting to know that it does mean light in Berber. The name was given, I've been told, by my Grandpa. He probably did it on purpose to sketch a kind of a passion for me or could this be just a coincidence? Who knows?!

I was born in Algeria and came to France where I attended the University of la Sorbonne Nouvelle, in Paris, and received my Master degree in communication & media studies, at the Institute of Art & Media. Now I am based in Vienna (Austria) but available worldwide for photographic and video assignment & cooperations.

My approach is always to privilege the daylight for photography work. In low light situations, I prefer pushing the settings of my camera until getting the most accepting and satisfying result instead of adding any of a non-natural source of light. But I do work with other sources of light when this would be imperative in some creative situations.

Multilingual, multicultural, I speak English, ich spreche Deutsch (German) & je parle Français (French)... And Arabic as well as Berber or Amazigh, a north african native language.

My name is Nouar Bellil and I am a photographer and a filmmaker.
