Niran was born and raised in London, where he studied Creative Advertising Strategy at the University of the Arts. London has been his inspiration and portal of discovery with its fast-paced art, design and music culture. After finishing his degree, Niran worked in advertising where he began taking his photography more seriously whilst developing campaigns for a range of brands such as Nike, ASOS and Diageo.
In 2013, he started at AKQA to work on Nike where he was given the role of 'Creative'. A hybrid role where he was able to art direct, concept and design through various disciplines across several Nike categories such as Football, Sportswear and Women. His background in design and art direction has helped him discover his reportage photographic style.
He currently resides in London and spends his free time in the gym, serving at Hillsong London and going on photo walks with his friends.
Some clients include: Nike, adidas, Diageo, Alpha Course, Lacosté, Hypebeast, Highsnobiety.
