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

In lieu with one of Qatar’s most important cultural milestone, aramanstudio takes pride in shooting at the newly opened Fire Station Artist in Residence, an art hub accessible for everyone that opened March this year in Doha, Qatar. The gallery welcomes painters, multimedia artists, sculptors, and the likes to showcase and be part of this incredible spot.
During The Doha Fire Station’s opening this year, Sheikha Al Mayassa bin Hamad Al Thani, chairperson of Qatar Museums, attended whilst praising the art space’s cultural importance. And while the whole structure of the old fire station was maintained, the interiors are modernized and artistically turned into something more beautiful than it was.
The Fire Station is indeed a residence for the local art community and visitors alike.

Kill Bill with a Kar Wai

The images are the ripples of truth, emanating from a stone thrown into a deep, deep well of creativity.

The play of light in these photos paved way to the subject’s illustration of both movies where the inspiration came from. Such fashion shoot perfectly portrayed not only the styling of Linda Mortensen with the help of Hair and Make-up Artist, Annesofie Begtrup, but also the tenderness of model, Adriana. This work by powerhouse Dubai photography production team, aramanstudio, will draw any audience closer to what seemed like a theatrical imagery in each shot.

In the realm of photography, every subject is as important as the set and lighting. The end result should be the perfect blend of composition, mood, and colors. By combining all these elements altogether, with the help of an amazing team of stylist and HMUA (Hair and Make-up Artist), is the key to a rewarding and fruitful shoot. Let us also not forget to highly regard the crew of China Grill Restaurant, Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi for the stunning set.
