First food stylist in Libya

“Cooking and baking were my true passion but I had never thought of them as career, simply because in my country you should be an engineer or a doctor to get a respectful job.

In 2013, I was jobless. That’s when I started sharing my recipes on Facebook. Then, I began working on the presentation of the food, which led me to discover the world of food styling and photography. At the beginning, it was hard to learn since it’s an unknown art in Libya. I started reading books, asking a lot and by time I had improved my skills till I became the first food stylist and photographer in Libya.


Having an architectural background and passion for food, cooking and backing helped me to become first food stylist and photographer in my country. Now, after almost 2 years since I created my company Mezian, many other food photographers have emerged in Libya.”
