Altamash Javed

Altamash Javed is a photographer and content creator in Dubai, who has collaborated with brands like Apple, Instagram and Dubai Tourism, and featured prominently in the press and across social media.

Starting a career in finance right out of university, he kept his passion for photography going, even if it was just taking pictures from his blackberry (yes, a blackberry). In 2013 he quit his banking job to focus on photography. By just experimenting and no formal training, just practice, slowly but surely he started turning photography into his career.

Through sharing his iPhone images on Instagram, he was able to showcase his work, get discovered and network. This has resulted in collaborations and features with several big brands and a full-time career in photography.
