Jean Ferrero created Studio Ferrero in Nice in 1954. He was known as a "naturist" because unlike many of his contemporaries he tended to shoot outdoors. In this he was aligned with Don Whitman, though the context was Nice and the South of France.
Ferrero’s photographs were featured in physique magazines worldwide, especially the Danish International Nudist Sun. He became an art dealer in the 1960s. His gallery in Nice is still in existence.
