Here Is Everything You Need to Know About the Genius Egyptian Artist Behind GFF’s Dramatic Shoot
You might think it’s all about hitting the shutter-release button at the perfect moment, but it’s not that simple. It takes talent, experience, and an adept mind to make it through in the photography scene. And whether you’re really into the details of photography, or you just appreciate a beautiful portrait or even a skillfully taken selfie; it takes a lot of skill to take those unbelievable selfies, you’ll definitely enjoy the work of Ahmed Hayman, AKA Hymanics.
Amidst all the fashion rave, the movie recognition, and the paparazzi drama in El Gouna Film Festival, Hayman got in with his lens and left us with an art to revel in. In his series “Dramatic Portraits,” he captured a number of actors, actresses, directors, and starlets of the GFF18, in their most real and humane state. That’s why we decided to dig deeper and know everything about the artist behind all those sensational and eloquent portraits.
Ahmed Hayman is an illustrious photographer who studied Mass Communications; and carries a Visual Storytelling Diploma from the School of Media and Journalism in Denmark, back in 2011. His Photography earned an abundance of awards, and he had a number of exhibitions such as “From My Lens to Her Dreams” which was organized by UN-Women & PLAN back in 2013. Hayman decided to contribute more to the photography community and started his own school for photography, Beit El Sura, which is also a gallery, a studio, and an exquisite outdoor co-working space.
We sat down one on one with Hayman to get to know about him even more and here’s what he had to say!
