Nima Benati Profile Information

  • WHAT A DAY IS TODAY! 📝
After a year from the first time we met, I am proud to announce I am officially represented by @adbagency ! it still doesn’t feel real! When I saw the NAMES this agency represented, back when I was in New York last winter, I didn’t even wanna show up to the meeting. What they could want from a newbie like me? With an iconic name such as DEMARCHELIER on the board! 
I got there shaking and sweating, and yet Sacha kept telling me I was amazing, no matter how little I believed in myself, no matter how I kept saying I didn’t like any of my work.
I’ve been a freelance photographer my entire life and I guess life will keep surprising me year after year because each time I can’t possibly imagine things getting better, but they do.
I started in the living room of my parents home, using bed sheets as a background, now I am represented worldwide alongside some of the most iconic names in the industry.
Thank you for letting me be part of your family, I’m looking forward to all the future times you will make me shake and get sweaty hands! ♥️🔏 @itsbeenemotional #adbAgency

  • I think it’s so funny to see this picture, that looks quite chill and calm, and know the behind the scenes: to reach the highest point of the mountain you have to go through a skyway that sadly closes super early. Once it’s closed, it’s closed, you are left on the glacier! They even make an announcement to make sure everyone that is left up is equipped for the night ( professional climbers ) 🧗‍♂️ I really wanted to make a last shot because with all the difficulties of the day I didn’t make enough looks as promised to the client. Everyone literally left because too scared of being stuck up there.... I made sure not to translate to the girls the risk I was taking for them, I literally pushed them beyond the fence on these rocks and took 10 shots while screaming to my assistant to keep the doors open for us. ⏰🥶 From the outside I think we all looked completely mental, with seventeen bags hanging from our necks arms and shoulders ready to bring everything with us after this.
And in the end, this simple picture taken in a couple seconds that was never planned or organized, ended up printed on magazines and displayed in stores all around Italy.
