Capture your Art, Tell your Story
Even though I'm not a photographer, I always make sure that my photo's not only represent the story that I tell but also the quality I aspire as a businessowner. In this course I will teach you how to make your photo's stand out and meet your artistic vision. After all a picture is worth a thousand words.
Share your story,
frame by frame
In an era that is ruled by image, social media and online presence, it can feel quite overwhelming to keep up with that game. Let me tell you that you don't have to be a professional photographer nor have fancy equipment. I started from scratch and worked with what I had. The image you see here, has made it all over the internet. I made it, at least 15 years ago with my first tiny cheap digital camera and a lamp that is used on construction sites. To tell my story in one image I added some jewelry, face art and a khmissa and this became the branding of my business when i started back in the days. Of course my sister is a great model too and I don't underestimate that!
What will I learn?
With some simple ways and some time and effort you too can make your photo's do the story telling work for you. It is challenging, but also very rewarding when you will see the difference and progress you make. I will share with you my experiences, insights and handy tricks. You will learn about light, color theory, working with props, handposing, balanced framing, focus and depth.

I'm very aware that this class is quite intensive especially when you put all the exercises into practice.
So to keep my Henna Habiba's and Habibo's relaxed after hard work, I designed a coloring page to let your mind drift away while your hands flow with colors. The message in the center "Focus on U" is meant as a reminder....Even though in this class you will learn to focus on many different aspects to up your photo game, in the end, all the vision for your work comes from you. So focus on u and nurture u to make sure you can keep it up. Get yourself a Hand of Fatima original. Receive this digital Art Work "Focus on u" as a free downloadable file. Made with love by yours truly of course.

I'm your teacher
Salam! My name is Fatima Oulad Thami and I am often asked: why did you choose to do henna? But that is not how I see it. I did not choose to do henna, henna chose me. I am merely the instrument, the window, the bridge, medium, whatever you wish to call it, through which the story of Henna Art may be told. Henna is magical. Once it has touched your heart, it digs itself into your soul and will not let you go. The passion for this ancestral art became my way of life.
Why would you learn from me
Moroccan Henna culture is not only my expertise but also my deepest passion. I have been running my Henna business professionally for 20 + years. In addition to the henna services I offer, I also run a Henna supplies webshop and a Henna academy. I have been asked to teach at the most prominent henna conferences worldwide. I have inspired thousands of women so far to embrace the Moroccan Henna style and acknowledge its value. Now it’s your turn to embrace this meaningful authentic beauty ritual and experience how it will change your life.
National Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage
Intangible heritage includes a.o. practices, knowledge and skills that express cultural identity and diversity. I actively propagate and safeguard the practition of Moroccan Henna Art and therefor I ‘m an ambassador of Intangible Cultural Heritage since 2014. Henna Art was added to the National Inventory of Intangible and Cultural Heritage in the Netherlands due to my safeguarding plans. This Inventory charts Intangible Heritage and helps communities and artisans to safeguard their traditions and preserve them for future generations.
The compilation of the National Inventory is one of the obligations the Netherlands undertook to fulfill when the UNESCO Convention for the safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage was ratified.
Happy Henna Habiba's
Everything she touches she adorns with meticulous perfection and intention
We met personally at the East West Mehndi Meet in Hungary.
Fatima is a teacher with so much content, it seems infinite. I am impressed by her dedication and how much her knowledge is based on in-depth studies. She is a very attentive and caring teacher, but above all, I admire her passion for rescuing the ancient art and culture of henna, and propagating it through teaching. The best I learned from her was about the amazigh henna simbols and magics, but I wish to have much more classes with her, and continue to learn.

To meet her personally was a personal dream that came true
I met Fatima through our mutual henna passion. Fatima is a perfectionist. I adore her way of planning each detail. Fatima is born to teach.
I took a class at the Henna Dreams Weekend. To meet her personally was a personal dream that came true.
We hired her to teach the German henna group. Just a perfect experience. She is a amazing person and most talented. Don't have any doubts to hire her.
