Yassine is a gifted young photographer and his talent shows in every thoughtful image that he composes.  We recently photographed a wedding together and I had to show off some of his work in this featured assignment of the month . The fact is that when he does an assignment all of the images seem to meld together into one beautiful photo essay. He doesn’t only capture the essence of the moment but the story behind it and he does this with every assignment he has ever done for me no matter how important or insignificant it is. I once had a photographer say to me, “here we are at another event, no excitement just the same old thing.” Yassine approaches everything he photographs as though it were a new experience. All one needs to do is look at the expressions of the people and his use of space and architecture that lead the eye to a meaningful image. No matter what assignment I give him he comes back with a body of work that far exceeds my expectations. In these samples of his work is a photograph of me during a pensive moment at the wedding. My wife loves this image so I was indulgent and included it. Go to his website and explore his talents: http://www.yassinephoto.com/
