A camera operator and director of photography, Jean-Pierre St-Louis is also one of the co-founders of Coop Vidéo in Montreal. He began his career with Robert Morin and Lorraine Dufour, and remains true to his first loves.

Then came Requiem pour un beau sans-cœur (1992), Windigo (1994), Quiconque meurt, meurt à douleur (Whoever Dies, Dies in Pain) (1998), Opération Cobra (2001) and Le Nèg' (2002).
