It was quickly apparent that Admir was going to be a great portraiture client. He was gregarious, full of life, and had a smile a mile wide.
As a portrait photographer, I want to know as much as I can about my clients before photographing them. Understanding a person's background helps me decide how to navigate their. portrait session. With this said, the more Admir and I talked, the more impressed I became.
Born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Admir's story runs deep. When war broke out, he became a teenage refugee. During the Bosnian war, he fled to Croatia where he was able to enroll in a technical high school. Though he was originally accepted as a non-matriculating student, Admir displayed tremendous efforts and was awarded a high school diploma.
With sponsorship and support, he then enrolled in university and soon started a company which worked to preserve ancient cultural heritage. Years later, he received his doctorate in chemistry and eventually made his way to America. Now, Dr. Masic is currently a scientist serving as a career development professor at MIT. He is also a researcher, studying the characterization of archaeological materials with the objective of inspiring the design of more sustainable and durable building.
After learning Admir's story, I was honored to create some new personal branding images for him and to share some time together here in Tokyo. More, I was honored to work with an intellectual whose life serves as an inspiration.
