About a month ago, late one evening, and during a long Lightroom session, I received an email which would give any photographer a 9 inch smile. This wasn't at all the typical email I usually get. It sounded more like a brief that an Art Director or Fashion Editor would give to a working fashion photographer during the pre-production process of an editorial shoot. Ghina soon told me that she is the Fashion Editor of ELLE (Middle East) and would love for us to work together. You can imagine my excitement at this point.
After exchanging a few emails - more like a cocktail of ideas - on how we would shoot this, Ghina and Tarek flew in and we then met so we can put this styled shoot together.
This was one of the most effortless and enjoyable shoots I've had this year. Ghina and Tarek both work in the Fashion / Publishing industry so communicating creative ideas amongst us felt as natural as can be.
It was a great honour and pleasure.
