DossaniPlus is a relatively new name in Wedding Photography in Karachi. But despite being new, it is doing relatively well and is slowly establishing itself as one of the ” go to” photographers to cover your wedding. Although, the Dossani Family has been in the photography business since decades, but Kashif Dossani, the second generation photographer in the family has breathed a new lease of life into the business.
I approached Kashif Dossani a few months ago and he kindly agreed to an online interview to be published in this blog space. I’ll let the interview do the rest of the talking. :)
1 – Tell us about Dossani Plus.
DossaniPlus is a boutique Canadian based studio led by myself. We brought a different style of photography in the Vancouver Wedding, glamour and corporate industry in Canada. Only in our first year of running, we met with great success, which allowed me to open a new location in my hometown Karachi, Pakistan.
2- Who are the photographers?
I am the key photographer. I graduated from a prestigious Canadian Photography school in Vancouver. Being among the top rank in my class for people photography, I have also been acknowledged as ‘one who creates from nothing’.
I am a second-generation photographer, while my family has been in the photography business since 1975. Photography is my passion and capturing those unguarded moments is my specialty. I feel that I am good at observing which enables me to capture treasured moments and display them into authenticated candid shots. My ability, experience and understanding gained opportunities to exhibit my work of art in select exhibitions across Canada.
My associate photographers assist me and also lead events.
3 – What cities do you work in?
We travel across the globe. We have already covered weddings in Dubai, Canada and USA.
4 – Where is home for you?
