KHALIFA SHAHEEN

We are an independent photographic establishment with roots dating back to 1971. Our legacy was founded and built around Khalifa Shaheen’s vast portfolio of work. Widely regarded as one of the Gulf’s pioneers in film and still photography, Khalifa was Bahrain’s first award winning filmmaker to gain numerous awards and accolades as a testament to his passion for the art.

Our company began as Falcon Cinefoto asa humble but professional lab providing wedding and event photography services. Not before long we gained the leading name in photographic expertise on the island, vastly expanding our services soon after.

In 2006 we repositioned our brand in the market as Khalifa Shaheen Digital Images (KSDi) when we introduced high-end commercial digital services to our clientele.

With the continuous ambition to improve and evolve in a dynamic market, we have reformulated our identity and core business model today as Khalifa Shaheen Productions (KSP), a privately owned photography company under the media umbrella of OSK Partners. KSP is a full-service, integrated production company that offers state-of-the-art film production and photographic services for both personal and corporate requirements. We are proud to continue to provide comprehensive solutions for our clients in the region.
