Samer is also the guy that brought me to Beirut last year to cover the BDL Accelerate conference, and we’ve forged a great friendship over the years that I’ve know him.
While recently covering the Pirate Summit in Cologne, Germany, Samer was preparing to take the stage. I passed by him and spotted this incredible stick on mustache and knew it was a shot that had to happen. Using all natural light, I simply had him turn 90 degrees to his right so that the key lighting, here highly diffused light from a white canvas above us, would highlight his features.
A completely natural, fun, and telling portrait, this is exactly how I see Samer. A guy who knows his shit, but also knows how to have a great time while executing a great message.
