Its been almost a decade since the birth of the fashion industry in the region. We as an agency and our clients are still facing challenges finding the right editorial models here. Even though there are more than 3 established model agencies and a smaller market, we are terrified of shooting great stories. We are pushing most of the agencies to improve and things have become better but still there is some distance to go. It's silly to have just one good model a month.
What are we doing about this:
We have made our mission this year to invest into bringing in good models. Most of the brands have requested us and we will help them change things and we are looking forward to be working with them on this.
Our new modeling project is soon to be announced.
From the series of Masked Björk here comes another one for Iceland Glamour! Shot by the photographer Silja Magg, this works of her truly captures raw encapsulated personalty of Björk. The cover that that hides the face of known artist pretty much says about how social media and internet is influencing brands, magazines and big names, as in how they represents themselves by creating ground breaking imagery.
Known for their beautiful film & editorial work, the duo Karine & Oliver returns back to Dubai from the 9th of August till 23rd of August.
The Duo was last here in February this year shooting an editorial and film story for Nis Nass.com. We looking forward to their visit this year and hoping for them to work for our best clients.
A new initiative, ALT TBP lets anyone request for an artist to conduct a 4-5 day workshop in Dubai, only focusing on fashion photography. Based on a voting system, that will allow people to select an artist and send a request to join in the workshop. The voters will get 15% discount on the full fees. These workshops will be for mid-to-advance level photographers and will be focusing on aesthetic, lighting, retouching and creating editorial ideas.
Time keeps moving forward and we keep growing both vertically & horizontally. We have realized we must use the best potential of our strengths. Having said that, working with many brands & managing their productions with successful outcome has given birth to our new production extension, named after the "new beginning", as TWENTY18. A full service production resource agency specializing in Film mainly and followed by stills. Soon to place alist of young and experienced film directors ranging in all areas.
