In celebration of art in one of its most exquisite forms, photography, the world dedicates the 19th of August of every year as World Photography Day. And in appreciation of the wide pool of talent we have here in Egypt, we decided to shed light on our all-time favourite photographers. 

Ahmed Hayman

The co-founder of Beit El Sura is known for his incredible visual storytelling. From mountainous Nepal to the vast deserts of Egypt, his photography is truly compelling. You definitely know Hayman for his series of dramatic portraits taken at last year’s El Gouna Film Festival.

Yesterday's workshop with @sonymea and @photopiacairo. Was a great crowd of people. This time I wanted to showcase something simple and easy so I decided to go with a Mexican theme and this required a very talented make up artist and stylist. Want to thank @mariamwahidd for the amazing job with the make up, we knew it will be a big challenge but you nailed it 👏🏻, will think of something harder next time 😊. Thanks to @thefashionvisionary_ for all the outfits and props, and also for being patient with me with last-minute decisions 🙏🏻. @sarakayaliii you were amazing and badass 😎🙏🏻. . . . Shot with Sony A7R mark 3 and GM Sony 85 mm 1/200, f/5. ISO 100 . . . #portraitphotography #sony #sonyalpha #model #portrait #portraits #photography #photooftheday #mexico #instagram #egypt #alphaegy #sonymea #profotoglobal #profoto #studiophotography
