It is interesting to note that (about 40 years ago) we were instrumental in introducing color photography to Abu Dhabi. At a time when Kodak was printing color photographs in Dubai, we launched color photography in Abu Dhabi.
In 1975 the Shirazi brothers decided to move to UAE and foray into photography business, thus Spectrum color film was launched.
Several companies in Japan and United Kingdom were researching on photographic technologies. The Shirazi brothers headed to these countries to study the latest in photography and to research on photographic related equipment. After a successful stint, the first ever color photographic printing equipment was introduced to Abu Dhabi.
In a very short time large oil conglomerates like ADNOC, Bechtel, began engaging with Spectrum Color Film. Soon Spectrum became a house hold name in the field of photography. Demand for newer and more challenging forms of photography arose. Spectrum Color Film then ventured into “Aerial photography” and “Industrial photography”. Weather it was assignments deep in the sea or deep in the desert, the Shirazi brothers were soon the undisputed authority in these fields.
With the baton being passed to the next generation, digital photography was the next big thing. Photo Splash was formed to cater to corporate events and Photo Vision Plus was formed to cater to private events like weddings and parties.
Now with over 40 years of experience in UAE, both the companies are gearing up to the new challenges of the digital era. The future is digital and Photo Vision and Photo Vision Plus will surely be ahead in the race.
