Keeping a robust career as an imaging professional in the UAE is already an important achievement in and of itself for Charles Liban Jr. as the market is already quite saturated with talented content creators. One of his proudest feats, however, is the level of involvement that he has with Nikon as one of their most ardent collaborators. For Nikon, he not only produces content and leads workshops but he is also one of their most respected endorsers.

“Being so closely associated with a multinational brand with such a rich heritage and highly engaged fanbase enriches my career in so many ways, and I am so honored to be a part of their ongoing, ever-growing legend,” he says.

Charles is also the Co-Founder of TAIO Communications, a marketing communications and content creation agency and a travel photography instructor for World Art Dubai 2019.  He has worked on partnerships with Saudi Commission for Tourism & National Heritage, Huawei, the Sharjah Tourism Administration and the 2019 Xposure International Photography Festival.

More than his wins in the industry, Charles is particularly proud of the fact that his work is consistently regarded as a benchmark by other creators and organizations in terms of aesthetic, efficiency, effectivity, and technical mastery.  He shares, “ This is something that galvanizes me not just as a professional, but also as a Filipino who is striving to make a mark in an industry that is usually dominated by other nationalities.”
