Oryx – Behind the Fashion Scene with Toufic Araman – Fashion Photographer
Behind the Scenes
Each month Oryx produces a fashion shoot for its sister publication, Oryx Premium.
This month we went behind the scenes with the award-winning Dubai based fashion photographer, Toufic Araman in Doha’s Souq Waqif.
The social heart of Doha, Souq Waqif is known for its buzzing atmosphere, restaurants, and cafés for watching the world go by, and merchants trading fine silks, carpets, spices, textiles, antiques, musical instruments, and Arabian oud perfumes.
There has been a souq on this site for centuries. Recently restored, Souq Waqif features mud-rendered shops, exposed timber beams, and some beautifully restored original Qatari buildings, and remains one of the most traditional marketplaces in the region.
Inspired by Souq Waqif’s unique location, rich history, and vibrant atmosphere, we headed there for Oryx Premium’s latest fashion shoot, and recorded a behind-the-scenes experience of the photoshoot
