Dubai based professional photographer / videographer with more than 10 years of experience, I began my career as a graphic designer. However, my passion for lights, shades and colors led to me morphing into a photographer.
Light is something that has always fascinated me. The same location seen at different times under different light conditions leaves the photographer in me amazed. Most of my photography inspirations are from cinema; cinematographer Roger Deakins is my all time favorite. Some day I hope to possess a portfolio – and a professional attitude – similar to that great man!
Over the last 8 years in the UAE, I’ve contributed my photography skills to magazines such as BBC Good Food, CitizenK, WatchTime, InsideOut, Friday, Gulf News and Fatfeat, to name a few.
I love meeting and interacting with people every day… some of them I take along in this journey called life.

I grew up in the magnificent city of Saint Petersburg. My mother Emilia Shraga is a musician, and my father Vyacheslav Shraga was a painter. No wonder that the audio-visual side of things became two major areas of my interest. From my mother I inherited a musical ear and from my father — poetic and compassionate vision.
I started out as a photojournalist in Russia in 2008. I worked for several publishers and supplied large-scale social documentary and industrial photo projects. After moving in 2011 to Israel I began applying my journalistic skills to humanitarian photography, performing arts photography and documentary filmmaking.
My humanitarian photography serves as a call to action, urging a direct response from the audience. Fundraising campaign materials based on my photographs managed to attract millions of dollars in donations.
When I work with performing artists, I create images that ensure the success of their shows. The theaters I work with are enjoying cohesive and powerful materials they receive from me for their marketing campaigns.
I live with my family in the forested hills near Jerusalem, Israel, and working around the globe.
My name is Yadid Levy and I’m a photographer based in Tel Aviv and Buenos Aires. Ever since I remember I was fascinated by other cultures and far away countries. As a kid I used to read about the journeys of great explorers and travelers and dreamed about the day I would set off on my own to explore the different corners of the world.

For 18 years now I’ve been traveling about 4-6 months a year around the world on assignments for various clients and until this day has visited more than 80 countries.

Perfectly at home working anywhere around the world I always manage the unexpected and get the job done.
In both my personal and commercial projects, What interests me stays the same- convey stories, breathe life into concepts and externalize emotions through conceptual and sometimes surreal images.
I do commercial photography for Ad agencies, magazines, brands, artists and private companies.
In my personal project, “The Surrealistic Pillow,” I fuse the real with the surreal, creating dream-inspired tableaus from images of my imagination.
The series is a result of a ten year quest to catalog these fragments, it’s been featured in art fairs and exhibitions around the world, including London, Brussels, Spain and Germany.
These images are created using careful camera work, computer editing and intricately layered individual components.

My journey as a storyteller was inspired by childhood trips with my mountaineer grandfather, who introduced me to the wonders of the natural world while sharing tales of the people and places from his adventurous life. He sparked in me a curiosity for travel, respect for different cultures and strong desire to protect the environment.
As a documentary photography, my personal work explores the close relationship between people and place. I have been working in the Western Balkans since 2013, when I first came to the region and discovered there was far more here than the stereotypes of war, ethnic divisions and the disarray of post-communism. Since then I have been sharing stories that shed light on the beauty of the Balkans, its unique cultural heritage, pristine environments and the struggle to preserve all three.

I love Africa; it’s pretty much all I’ve known. My family settled here in Zambia in the late 1800s and I was raised on a remote cattle ranch in the North West of the country bordering Angola and Congo. I now, somewhat reluctantly, live near a city (so as to be able to leap on a plane) but loyally continue the family farming tradition by raising two bad-tempered rabbits and an orange cat named Morris.
Whether on a non-profit assignment or a commercial shoot, I take pride in my ability to think quickly on the ground and use my local knowledge and skills to help ensure the success of a shoot, even when the proverbial whatsit is wending its merry way, inevitably, towards the fan.
Like many photographers, my daily existence tends to be somewhat solitary when I’m not actually shooting, so I thrive on constantly meeting new people and working as part of a creative team.
My clients include WWF, The Nature Conservancy, Ogilvy, Y&R, The Financial Times, The Telegraph, USAID, PSI, PATH, WSUP, Concern Worldwide, World Bicycle Relief, Intercontinental Hotels, Taj Hotels and Tsogo Sun.
