Osman Akuz is one of Jordan’s most renowned photographers. Over the decades he amassed an absolutely HUGE collection of photos from Jordan and the Middle East covering a wide spectrum from artistic to industrial photography.
When we, people in the design, advertising and media business think of Osman we realize that he’s a figure who’s been creatively active during a time before our whole ‘industry’ existed.. Even before many of us were born!!
Yet he’s such a friendly and humble man. It’s always great to meet him or talk to him over the phone when you need that special picture. It’s always reassuring to hear his Turkish accented English mixed with Arabic expressions: most notably the word “Wallahi”..
I’ve been in contact with Osman for over a decade now and he’s helped us out at SYNTAX many many times. So when it came to helping him start his new web venture we jumped on the opportunity.
The result is our design and development work for Imagenets.com, Osman’s online stock photo library.
Osman has ambitious plans for ImageNets. Eventually the site should hold 50,000 photos. There already were over 1000 photos online last time I talked to Osman.
Needles to say the site, which is based on a robust PHP/MySQL solution, is keyword searchable and includes a shopping cart to order images, Osman is offering a free download of a featured image each month.
Thanks Osman for this opportunity to work with you on this and thanks to Salua, Reef and Khalid from SYNTAX for their work on the site.
