December 22: Izaan Khan is one of the young, well-known and most celebrated Fashion Photographers and Film directors. Khan has an impressive clientele of big brands and labels. To mention a few, he has already worked for brands such as Adidas Originals, Mercedes-Benz, and Google for the campaign shoots. Along the way, he has worked for big designer labels and ace designers as well. Hailing from Old Delhi, India, Mr. Khan has documented subjects from A-list Bollywood stars, musicians, supermodels, and artists as well as subjects he has encountered throughout his travels.
Alongside his practice as a photographer, Khan is the creative director and founder of “Freaky Mack – a boutique Advertising Agency, which started its journey in 2018 and is already making a mark in TVCs, campaign shoots and short films, films and stills production, creative direction, and brand strategy. Khan’s creativity isn’t limited and as a side hustle, he has created logos for brands such as Times Fashion Weeks, India Fashion Awards, Entertainment Premier League, and many more.
Mr. Khaan adds that “for him, camera is a vehicle on which he delivers his passion to produce stills and videos that stay with the viewer long after they see the shot. He strives to achieve this every time he picks up his camera. He is truly blessed to do what he loves every day. He is presently involved in 3 major filmmaking projects as a Director, 2 of short films which are already under post-production. The 3rd one is about to going on floor, and all 3 will be out by the mid of 2022. Additionally, he keeps on directing fashion films and TV Commercials. Having this tightly planned schedule It becomes a difficult thing to balance your work life and your private one. He tries to take one month out each year so that he can just run away from it all with himself. He tries not to work over the weekends unless he has a commission that is not in the city where he lives. Somehow, this arrangement works.
He further adds that; He is very non-competitive person. The only person that he does compete with is himself. And that too every time he feels that he could have done better in a project or any shoot. Mostly, he concentrates on his own work and leaves the competition part to people who are not secure about their talent.
When it comes to planning for the future Izaan either finds himself spending the life of a recluse in a cabin deep in the woods or he would be working hard for his dream project which is directing a high-budgeted science fiction movie. He has always been a fan of good, believable science fiction so he is waiting for the right project and the right time.
