OFW Life: Wannabe Fashion Photographer

My career as a wannabe fashion photographer started last year when I was currently on hiatus with my blogging life. I was so bored not doing anything at all but was so lazy to update my blog when I met Iggy.

Iggy is a Dutch fashion model who stayed in Dubai for a short period of time.  I guess it was fate that had brought us together since I love checking out the ootd's of fashion bloggers but never had the guts to post my own ootds. 

She was a wonderful subject. I guess she does not have a bad angle. I am super overwhelmed as Iggy was not just your regular fashion / lifestyle blogger but also an in demand model. She had already modeled for Ralph Lauren, Demetrios', Nicolas Jebran, H.J de Rooy, Sharkiah, Van Cleef Arpels, Breitling and some other brands.

Here are some of the shots I made that she posted on her blog. Please forgive me if some of my shots are not that nice as I am not a professional photographer just posing as one.

Using my trusted Ipad Mini, this was our first set. 

Taken last year, this was for her UAE National Day Post. I had used my Sony NEX 3 for this photo and the next ones.

Not your ordinary school girl

Taken inside Gramercy. I super love this set because we get to take a lot of good photos inside the restaurant.

She almost stopped the traffic.

Taken at the Ritz Carlton Bridge in DIFC. 

Super love this shot.

This was one of best photos I've taken of her. She just slayed it.


I had been missing Iggy since she left Dubai. I just hope i would get to work with her again.
