THE COMPANY

Refractive Shadows is a Saudi based production house operating across numerous media channels and categories.  Beginning 2015, Refractive Shadows expanded its clients reach by establishing Beirut, Lebanon branch offering the same passion at a larger scale.

We create dynamic stills, and motion pictures for more than ten years to some of the world’s most admired companies.  Our staff and third party of writers, directors, and editors draw on their diverse expertise to handle projects of nearly every scale, from simple single camera for a studio interview setup, to complex multi camera commercial shoots at multiple locations around the region.

SECRETS IN A PHOTO, THE MORE IT TELLS, THE MORE YOU KNOW!

THE FOUNDER

Director & Photographer Issam Kanafani was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1971. In 1995, he earned his bachelor degree in Management Information Systems from Louisiana Tech University.  He’s always been involved in the sales and marketing services in the field of IT until he suddenly became addicted to the shutter release sound that triggered his love affair with digital photography, which transformed his passion into a professional career.

Inspired by life and the complexities that define us as individuals, Issam enjoys a shallow depth of field and artificial lighting to capture beauty, as much as a natural sunlight while composing outdoor scenes through his camera lens. His talent is diversified into different motion pictures & photographic techniques that makes his work recognized by his clients.
