Spark Session: Storytelling in Wedding and Destination Photography

Tasneem Alsultan gives insights into how she arrived at the unique intersection of storytelling, wedding photography and sociocultural commentary that defines her work, and has led to being published in National Geographic, British Journal of Photography, Time "Lightbox" and the New York Times "Lens Blog”.


During the seminar, Tasneem will touch on the emotive and artistic foundation of her creative process, as well as the more technical aspects of her workflow, show us how to make the most out of every opportunity while travelling to ‘shoot a wedding’ and discuss some of the key things she’s learnt building a photography brand in the region.
