“I worked with Karan when I was employed at Team Saatchi. We required a creative, aspirational photographer for the new Atlantis Dubai advertising campaign and Karen was the photographer chosen for this job. The end result was beautiful and Karan was so easy to work with, flexible, professional we then fought and won the right to use him on the Olay Twiggy photoshoot. I would highly recommend Karan no matter what the shoot.”
