They often say that when you are self-taught you become the master of the game. The saying simply defines Saif Akram, a creative Dubai based photographer who uses lights and shadows to his advantage creating a master piece.

“Lighting is everything” Saif says – “Without lights, there would be no photography, so learning how to control light has always been a mission of mine. I love being able to manipulate and sculpt scenes, faces and bodies with light. It’s amazing what small adjustments in position or power can to do the overall impact of the mood or impact of the picture”.

Every photo shoot is different Saif says.

“I regards every photo shoot as a new opportunity to create something more unique or better than I have before. I’m always looking ahead and have goals that I’m working towards. My favorite type of shoots are the ones where I can do whatever I want! It’s great when a client or editor trusts me enough to come up with something fun, creative or kind of crazy, either with lighting or with the overall concept. I love a good challenge!”

Saif specializes in fashion shoots and portraits and his work can be seen at major fashion events across the country.
