Ep 246: How to create high-end images on a budget with guest Rahim Mastafa

How to create high-end images on a budget. Who DOESN’T want to know how to do that? Let’s face it – most of us don’t have heaps of cash to splash around on big budgets sets, equipment or talent. So we have to make do with what we’ve got! But you can still achieve a high-end look even if you have a beer budget.

In this episode, we chat to photographer UK-based Rahim Mastafa on how he does just that.

Show Notes

Those of you in the podcast facebook group will be familiar with Rahim’s epic fitness and cinematic shots. They look like the kind of images you see on a movie billboard.

In this episode, Rahim shares how he broke into the photography industry and the simple lighting and shooting setups he uses to create his amazing images.

I’m a U.K based part-time portrait photographer. My day job is as an editor, making TV shows. I’ve done so for over 15 years but I am also in love with photography. I’ve been shooting for about 6 years, a few of which were specialising in fitness and physique photography.

I’ve since branched out into other areas and work a lot with costumes and often on location.

95% of my work is with Off Camera Flash. I’m an advanced Photoshop user and use it extensively in my work, either doing composites or with my post-production in general.
