Shine Group has entered into a partnership with Adrian Steirn, an award-winning photographer and filmmaker, to develop factual television and digital projects for the global marketplace.

The deal will see Steirn and Shine Group collaborate on projects over a two-year period.

Steirn’s most recent work include 21 Icons, a series of 21 portraits and supporting short films on the iconic men and women, including Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, that have shaped the history of South Africa and the world.

He was also commissioned in January by The Global Fund to mark its 10th anniversary of fighting AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria with a selection of portraits and a short film 10 Years of Impact, and also collaborated with the Alzheimer’s Society and the UK Department of Health’s dementia campaign on A Day To Remember, which included a short film.

“Adrian is an outstanding creative talent whose complements the extraordinary and distinctive images that he captures with a compelling narrative,” said Alex Mahon, CEO of Shine Group. “He is a natural storyteller with an incredible eye and a unique approach and as such we are hugely excited by the many creative possibilities a partnership with him presents.”
