• What

    Drives Me

    “… You will spend your life completely wasting your time, you will be doing things you don’t like doing, in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way. And after all, if you do really like what your doing it doesn’t matter what it is, you can eventually become a master of it. The only way to become a master at something is to be really with it… therefor it is important to consider that question, what do I desire?” Allan Watts

    For me, that was a journey that always led me in to creativity and photography.

  • Mastering

    The Trade

    Loving what I do is surly the start, that love has driven me to explore photography and videography in a variety of ways. Understanding what makes an amazing reel or photograph is an adventure that I love taking with each client. Mastering light is key, it’s a continues journey that I work on perfecting everyday. Directing clients is also as important if not more. Expecting a client to look great in a photograph without guidance and direction is an unrealistic feet unless they do photo shoots for a living! Thats why I have made sure to make that one of my biggest focus areas in each shoot.

  • Getting You Comfortable In Front of

    The Lens

    The best photographs of any person are only achived when the person is relaxed and they let themselves "be" in front of the camera. I pride myself in being able to get me clinets there no matter what. Be it a personal photo shoot or a commercial one, trust me to get you there as I have made that my job and my biggest differentiator.

Working with JN studios has been an absolute pleasure. I’ve never been in a “photo-shoot” before so I wasn’t sure what to expect or how to “pose”, but the guys made the process seamless and fun at the same time. Besides their technical ability and their eye for detail, their professionalism is one trait that truly stands out. They are constantly guiding you step by step to achieve the most photogenic results – all while making you feel at ease. I would highly recommend JN studios to anyone who is looking to capture their everlasting Kodak moment!

It was totally fun, exciting and the fact Jamal is patient made me share with him my thoughts and comments easily. He made me try so many different angles to compare the photos for the best result. To make my experience unforgettable one I received the photos after couple of days from the shoot ! It took me few minutes after receiving the photos to change my Twitter, LinkedIn, facebook page and my Instagram display picture !! They were all beautiful and full of life ! Thank you Jamal!

General Manager / Omnis International

I am not a fan of taking pictures and certainly not a fan of taking any picture of myself! I hate being the center of attention! To be honest I did not know what to expect exactly. I had no clue what is going to happen or how things went, I just kept thinking to myself “get there, stand, smile, get some pics done and leave”. In the beginning that was exactly whats happening. I was uncomfortable with a fake smile on my face and couldn’t really get why I had to put my head forward (apparently all my life I have been standing in a wrong way) etc.. But after a while and after some coaching from Jamal I started to loosen up and enjoy the session. Then I saw the photos! The first thought was wow Jamal is actually a talented photographer! he actually knew what he was doing! I thought my pictures looked really good. I am not saying that I made them look good because that’s totally not the case, but the pictures looked a lot better than what I thought they would be and I’m sure Jamal’s talent had everything to do with it.

From a perspective of a person who doesn't like being in front of the camera this was a super fun experience! This was the first time that I get professional photography and I wasn't sure what to expect however, Jamal made me feel comfortable and was very patient to my silliness, gave me useful tips and instructed me during the shoot. The pictures turned out very nice I posted them all over my social media pages!

Jamal is a natural born photographer. He has a great technical background, which combined with a natural passion made him really good at it. He is a relaxed person in general and has ZERO temper. This helps a lot to make you feel comfortable and this natural relaxation always produces great results.
