I gained a 2:1 from a university in London and have since shot for clothing designers, skin care specialists and jewellers.
Getting the shot in-camera is central to Alnoor’s work; the emphasis is on confidently applying light and positioning the subject to achieve the desired image. Post-production editing is reserved for enhancements that transcend the images from reality to art.
