In lieu with one of Qatar’s most important cultural milestone, Dubai's digital marketing agency ASTUDIO takes pride in shooting at the newly opened Fire Station Artist in Residence, an art hub accessible for everyone that opened March this year in Doha, Qatar. The gallery welcomes painters, multimedia artists, sculptors, and the likes to showcase and be part of this incredible spot.

During The Doha Fire Station’s opening this year, Sheikha Al Mayassa bin Hamad Al Thani, chairperson of Qatar Museums, attended whilst praising the art space’s cultural importance. And while the whole structure of the old fire station was maintained, the interiors are modernized and artistically turned into something more beautiful than it was.

The Fire Station is indeed a residence for the local art community and visitors alike.

Early this year, Dubai-based fashion photographer, Toufic Araman and his crew: stylist Farah Kreidieh, hair and make-up Annesofie Begtrup, and model Angelica, flew to Qatar and had the honor of being the first to shoot in the said location for the May 2015 issue of Oryx, Qatar Airway’s inflight magazine.

ASTUDIO’s fashion photographers in Qatar collaborated with local Qatari designers, the produced images are one-of-a-kind themed. From the astonishing architecture to the 70’s feel to the gold and yellow touches made more pop, the Doha Fire Station art space added pizzazz to the already imaginative composition.

The beautiful architecture of the Fire Station’s tower echoed not only history but also ingenuity. The outline of the building with symmetrical square windows added character to model Angelica’s banged bob hair in the black and white photo.

Toufic Araman’s creative and photography virtuoso meshed well with the setting of this week’s feature. Thanks to the awesome team with ASTUDIO for the successful video production Qatar.
