We were able to count on Naskademini's unique vision to make the pictures of our calendar this year.
Naskademini was born in Montreal and began his career as a web designer there, but always had a passion for photography and visual storytelling. In 2009, Naskademini opened his first creative studio in the south-west of Montreal and began focusing most of his energy on his new passion, all while continuing to service his web-design clients.
Then, in 2013, Naskademini decided to change career paths and focus solely on portrait and people photography. This bold move brought him to a field that proved to be his calling, because shortly thereafter he had a portfolio full of high-profile people, brands and companies who all borrowed his eye and vision in order to tell their businesses’ story.
His commercial clients in the fashion and lifestyle industries include Nike, Cadillac, CBC, Aldo, Little Burgundy, Veuve Clicquot, Timberland, Puma and many others.
Naskademini's work regularly appears in online publications and magazines, such as Variety, Esquire, Complex, enRoute, HYPEBEAST, and others. In 2015, he was commissioned by leading tech company Shopify to travel across the United States giving lectures and workshops on photography.
His work and passion have led him to teach and share his gifts with others and take on a mentorship role working with under-privilege kids in nearby high schools by showing them how to find their passion in the creative field of photography.
Since 2018, he has been working on his first photography book, which is slated for release in 2019. Naskademini likes to say that he’s still writing his biography one frame at a time.
Naskademini lives in Montreal but follows his work around the world.
