Meet Tas Limur

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tas Limur.

Tas, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was born and raised in Bangladesh. Growing up, I was surrounded by art and music. My dad used to be an artist (painter/sculptor/photographer). We even had a darkroom in our house. I always liked the idea of expressing emotions through art. I didn’t get serious about photography until the mid-2000s. I took some portraits for a friend one night and realized I really like doing this. I am still as passionate about it. It never gets old for me. I want to keep creating. It gives me a sense of fulfillment. Sometimes it takes a lot of people behind the scenes to produce a photograph. I am very fortunate to work with a team of very talented artists behind the scenes. My amazing wife always helps me with solidifying my ideas and executing them.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
No. Very bumpy road. There are always challenges. A reoccurring challenge is clients dreaming big but not having the budget to support their grand vision, and somehow I get made out to be the bad guy when I can’t deliver diamonds for doughnuts. As an artist, it is very discouraging to deal with. I think a lot of us in my profession are familiar with this situation. I am not bashing everyone here. There are still a lot of great clients who respect and value artists they hire.

Tas Limur Photography – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am a photographer, musician, Music video director. My work has a dark undertone.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I loved photographing Justin Chancellor of TOOL for a gallery show in collaboration with Jacob Roanhaus, an FX artist/sculptor friend of mine.
