The creative duo of talented UK photographers Oli Kellett and Alec Holder has created an incredible advertising campaign that has become one of the most original and creative in the last 10 years.
Having worked for so many years with people who only show their hands, photographers decided to show the world who they really are.
I very often heard the words from people: “What are your hands! You are probably a pianist. " I had no idea that there was an advertising shoot of hands until I saw such an advertisement. And I thought I could work like that too."
Friends consider this work to be the most amusing, calling me a "hand-model".
I've always been an actor, but I also do hand photography as well. I am a Palestinian. My hands are used when the customer needs a Spanish or Middle Eastern type.
I call myself a hand specialist, although they call me "supermodel" because I always go through all the auditions. My hands are insured for seven figures.
Castings are a weird procedure. But at least after trying it out, you know how much you managed to impress. If you haven't passed the casting, then thoughts like “did my little finger let me down?
I always advise people not to play with kittens, smoke or change the bike chain. Just take care of your hands and moisturize them constantly.
Once I had to participate in a shoot in the rain outside. I was so cold that my hands turned blue, and then the photographer displeasedly demanded from me: "Can you do something with them?"
Of course, I had to change some of my household habits. For example, I used to work on my car, but I had to give it up. If I know that in the next few days I will have a shoot, I stop all gardening at home.

It's interesting to work as a hand model. First of all, it's anonymous, so you can film for competing products. Today you work with Apple and tomorrow you work with Samsung, and it doesn't matter.
When I tell people about my work, some of them are surprised. They don't believe there is a whole branch of modeling for different body parts.
