I started as an assistant to Art Kane, Ralph Gibson, Jay Maisel, Sarah Moon in NYC in 89, then went on to create my own studio in Beirut, Lebanon for a couple of years. Moved to Brussels where I honed my skills as a fashion photographer. Five years later I moved to London where my career took an international turn and I started shooting for big names. Then I moved to Paris six years, then NYC six years. I am now back in Paris where I live and work. My experience in fashion and lifestyle shoots is quite extensive, I have shot fashion, advertising and environmental portraits for over 20 years, and regularly do lifestyle shoots for Bouygues, a telecom brand here in France and for the Paris Tourism Board. I am a creative problem solver, fun and laid-back, but also professional and very experienced. Used to produce large jobs, I like to organize and prep them well so the client feels secure. I speak French, English and Arabic fluently, and can manage to hold my own in Italian. I am used to deal with professional as well as non-professional models, and they always say it is a pleasant experience to work with me, because it is warm, swift and efficient. And they get beautiful images in the end, of course!
