Shiraz Ksaiba

I grew up in Tunisia and then Bournemouth. I moved to London in 1999 to take a BA in Fine Art at Middlesex University. I have 15 years experience in the creative industries having worked as a photographer, artist and facilitator, making and producing exhibitions, installations and related events until I moved into film and broadcast.

As a professional lighting camera operator I also have had specialist training such as with the Steadicam. I trained on the Tiffen Steadicam Silver course at the NFTS , and 3D filming & MOVI. I DP for drama and documentaries for TV and Film and creatively produce, direct and shoot for branding and commercial for online content, music video, live events and corporates on both stills and film, dealing with everything from briefs, pitches, pre-production, location recce, casting, scripting, shooting through to post. I have recently been shortlisted for the 2015 Raindance Film Festival.

I have had clients ranging from Channel 4, Vice media, and luxury brands such as Mandarin Hotels and financial institutions such as USB & KMPG through to The Foreign & Commonwealth Office. My last TV show I DP’d for was “Circus Girls” for Channel 4.

I am now running a surf hostel in Morocco and I am also working on writing a couple of treatments for short documentaries and stills series. I am involving young local artists and photographers that I have meet here and am going to collabrote with them, thus bringing them into the international scene of film and photography and hoping to bring their work to a new audience.
