Through the lens of Dubai photographers
Towering skyscrapers, serene beaches, magnificent architectural structures like the Burj Al Arab, vast expanses of desert… all part of the tableau of picturesque imagery that the UAE has come to represent. Dubai photographers have a massive canvas to work with as far as inspirations and backdrops go. Dubai is a booming socio-economic hotspot which has given rise to several industries. Three major industries out of these are fashion, advertising industry and media. All three require brilliant imagery to supplement them and Dubai photographers have risen to the occasion to take up this challenge.
Dubai photographers have a range of assignments to choose from – campaigns for advertorial fashions, beauty, travel, products and interiors and then of course editorial fashion, interiors, travel, products and beauty. Each different assignment has its own different guidelines to be followed. Dubai photographers adhere to internationally accepted standards when they shoot campaigns – be they editorial or advertorial. Editorial campaigns are taken up by Dubai photographers for luxury fashion magazines like MOJEH as well. Advertorial campaigns that are beautifully executed by Dubai photographers are often not just for local ad agencies and brands but also international ones. Dubai photographers have plenty of opportunities to showcase their talent and creativity through various assignments. Each of the class of Dubai photographers has their own interpretation of a campaign, and how it is suitable for which client – be it a brand, designer or magazine. The market for Dubai photographers is extremely competitive and each of them is necessitated to get their best professional capabilities to the fore to survive. What sets Dubai photographers apart is their individual understanding of a campaign and the extra edge they give to each image. Photoshoots for campaigns could then be done in black and white, colour, sepia or using advanced photographic techniques. However, what each of the Dubai photographers cannot afford to forget is how they can best showcase their creativity keeping the core campaign concept in mind.
Several Dubai photographers can be counted amongst the top of their line, like Toufic Araman, Sohail Arjmand, Oliver Jackson, Julie Saad, Amir Maljai, Charles Verghese, Siddharth Siva, Tiffany Schultz, Aamir Shah, Adiseshan Shankar, Celeste van Rooyen, Dia Saleh, Kourosh Sotoodeh and many more. These Dubai photographers have made their name in the city as thorough professionals and acquired the respect of participants in the fashion industry from all over the world. Hundreds of professional and aspiring shutterbugs come to the city to try their hand at cracking a career here, but it is only those Dubai photographers who make their mark with successful editorial and advertorial campaigns that manage to get professional respect under their belt.
