Keeping up with our series of supporting talented people and local businesses thanks to the existence of SYNC community, we’ve been contacted by several talents that truly deserve some light. And speaking of light, we have found Ahmed Gaafar, an adept Photographer who knows how to work with color, space, and lighting to create photos that are definitely worth hanging on the wall.
Ahmed has always been fascinated by photography ever since he was a kid. “I had a couple of polaroid cameras, and a Canon T90 film camera. I used to take pictures of literally everything I came across, but in 2008 I decided to actually learn. I taught myself by watching tutorials and reading articles on different photography and lighting techniques. I did my first paid shoot when I was 18, now I’m turning 30 this month. It was a hobby that turned successfully into a career,” Gaafar explained.
Ahmed’s talent in photography covers most of the fields, whether it’s food, architecture, products, portraits, fashion, etc. One of his remarkable fashion and editorial shoots is his collaborative shoot with UNN, in addition to his shoot with Aya El Kolaly, and the editorial/lifestyle shoot with Oberoi Hotel in Sahl Hasheesh.
Gaafar’s photography speaks for itself, and we have to admit that it’s pretty hard to find a photographer that can do high-quality advertising photoshoots with a real artistic approach as well! Here is more of Gaafar’s work:
Persistence is her middle name and she doesn't rest until getting the job done. Having a lot of experience in everything fashion related, she's our go-to girl when it comes to Elie Saab, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, or Alexander McQueen.
