Detroit, Michigan, United States
Hi, I'm Lians, a self-taught photographer. Welcome! My story begins with inspiration drawn from my Chaldean immigrant parents. Their story of overcoming persecution in Iraq to build a life of hope in America taught me the essence of resilience and determination. These values deeply influence my approach to life and my art. In my photography, I strive to capture more than just images; I aim to infuse each frame with creativity and a spirit of innovation.
Specializing in fashion, lifestyle, automotive, beauty, and portrait photography, my art is about capturing the essence of a project and the uniqueness of each subject. With every click, I aim to create not just an image, but a story that resonates with depth and emotion.
In addition to my professional life, I'm married to a wonderful human being and a proud father of two amazing teenage girls. They bring a different perspective and joy into my life, continually inspiring me with their curiosity and creativity.
My work has been recognized and celebrated globally. I am honored to be selected as one of the photographers in the Masters of Photography book, one of the winners of the American Photography Awards, and to have been selected for Lürzer’s Archive’s top 200 ad photographers worldwide. Additionally, I have been shortlisted for the Communication Arts Photography Awards, affirming my commitment to excellence and creativity in the field of photography.
Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working with a diverse and prestigious client list, including Alfa Romeo, Amuleti J Fashion Group, Apple, Audi, Bombay Gin, Campbell Ewald, CBS, Chevy, Chrysler, Cleveland Clinic, Commonwealth, CW50, Fender, GMC, Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, Harman Kardon, Hickey Freeman, Hutchinson Scofield, Inkslinger Clothing, Jeep, Kaiser Permanente, Leo Burnett, Life Fitness, Linda Dresner, McCann, MotorCity Casino, Ram, Rivian, Sony, Stellantis, The Nailco Group, TMV, Union Adworks, US Mint, Vigoss Jeans, Warner Brothers Music, Warrior Hockey, and Weber Shandwick.
