Ismar Basic (1986) was born in Slavonski Brod, Croatia to Bosnian parents. The Balkan wars caused his family to flee former Yugoslavia and reside in the east of the Netherlands. After originally focusing on music, Ismar found his passion lay in fashion and beauty photography.
He didn’t have to search far for inspiration, with his first collaborations with girlfriend, agency-signed model Astrid Heuker. These formed a fun 18 month trial-and-error period in which he further developed his talent and skills. Ismar is already proving himself as a self-taught photographer, with a number of shoots published, including in LINK Magazine, Talkies Magazine, Superior Magazine and several others. His work has also been featured on Fashionmilk.com.
By incorporating other art forms into his work, the up-and-coming photographer is able to fully showcase his creative vision. These art forms are diverse, ranging from photoshop and graphic design use to painting on his photographs and the use of eccentric designer pieces. By shooting with a variety of professional models and creatives, and with his endless stream of inspirations, Ismar continues to expand his portfolio and showcase his creativity.
