Neoseen worked with Katarina Premfors on our first project in Dubai during the hottest month of June! Not only was she her usual amazing, talented self - expert shooter with an eye for people and architecture, but on top she helped us resource locations, production services, rework permits on the fly. It was a fantastic project with a super happy client - and - we got to make life-long friends with Kat and her family.
