Akram (Sepideh) Nik Sefat Zendeh Del 

April 12th, 1988

Iran, Rasht

Portrait, Beauty and Fashion photographer and retouching expert

Ever since her childhood she was interested in painting and photography; however because of her family's lack of support, she was unable to study in one of these fields. For this reason, in 2004 after finishing her high school, since there were no professional art academies for private education in her home-town, she decided to start self-learning and so she entered the business of art and started her work as an experiential graphic designer in a publication and advertisement agency. After a few experiences of experiential photography and taking photographs of goods and architectural structures for her graphic design workshops, she became even more interested in photography and so she decided to learn more about photography to become a photographer. She was most interested in conceptual portrait photography; initially she started working in this field as a self-taught artist and soon after holding two group showcases and presenting works of fine art in these galleries, she finally decided to continue her career as a portrait photographer. Therefore she returned to her original interest and right now she is working as a portrait, beauty, and fashion photographer. It is obvious that in the country of Iran where modeling is not officially recognized as a career and the industry of fashion is still primitive and does not require highly experienced photographers, one of her main challenges has always been working with new faces interested in modeling, as well as educating them.
