Yeah! Right...
Sotheby’s and Christie’s have spent about $1 million in the last couple of years to fight a bill that would give visual artists a cut of the profits when their work is resold at auction.

Nikon has probably had just about enough when it comes to the D600 and its sensor dust/oil issues. It started with user complaints, evolved to class action

Introduction

Amyn Nasser is from Zanzibar . He's a self-taught visualist, shooting fashion, beauty, celebrities, advertising, nudes and fine art since 1981. His published work includes Vogue (Italy, France, Germany), Harper's Bazaar (Germay, Italy, France), Elle (France, Italy, Spain, Japan, US, Canada), L'Officiel Paris, Cosmopolitan (France, Italy, Germany, US), Marie Claire (France, US, Italy), Mens Health, Max, Amica, Votre Beauté, Glamour (France, Italy), 100 Cose, Depeche Mode, Jardin des Mode, and more. Advertising clients include Morgan, Hermés, Tommy Hilfiger, JC Castelbajac, Daniel Hechter, Etienne Aigner, OuiSet, Austin Reed, J Crew amongst others. His drive for perfection and ability to work both with and without art direction have put him in the forefront of "who to call" when time and results are most important.

Amyn strives for visual statements that tell a story, utilizing mood, style, motion, and mystery with his artful use of light.

Through the years Amyn's camera has taken memorable pictures of beautiful women, celebrities and personalities, including high political figures, athletes and movie stars.

Selected images are also available as Limited Edition Fine Art prints. Please email the Studio.

"I believe in the photographer's magic ...the ability to stir the soul with light and shape and color. Through the photographer's eyes a kiss becomes a romance, a stretch of fabric is a costume of endless possibilities, a face is the book that describes a lifetime. It's playful and full of energy..." Amyn Nasser
