I can now say that we still have quite a way to go with our online store, but all of our digital platforms are doing great .Our marketing team is highly dedicated to all platforms ,therefore it is easy for us to offer the service we offer at our stores- which is exactly what our main emphasis and focus is .

Kevin Casha

It is quite misleading to say that Kevin Casha is simply a highly respected and successful professional photographer. For sure, he has behind him a career spanning over 38 years in photography but Casha is involved in many other important facets of art and culture. He is one of the most awarded local photographers, both locally and internationally, and is a veritable reference point for Maltese photography.

His involvement in cultural spheres encompasses curatorial services, writing, co-ordinating the National Picture Archive, publishing and expertly teaching photography. He was behind the establishment (together with Stephen Vella) of the Higher National Diploma course in Photography at the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology. This was the first serious local academic course in photography which has now gone up to degree level. Casha is a much sought after and respected international judge and lecturer with assignments having seen him at work in the United Kingdom, China, Kuwait, Ireland, Lithuania and other countries. He has been past President of the Malta Photographic Society (MPS) and current Chairman and founder of the Malta Institute of Professional Photography (MIPP). To date, he is the only person to have been awarded the Honorary Life Membership of both top local photographic organizations for his contribution towards photography.

Amongst his major awards are the MIPP Photographer of the Year, the Malta Fashion Award for photographers and the MPS Photographer of the Year on no less than four occasions. He is a Fellow of both the MIPP and the Society for Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP); as well as an Associate of the Master Photographers Association of Great Britain. Other important milestones in his career have arrived from the Societies of Great Britain, who presented him with their highest accolade: the Master Photographer for his contribution to photography. In 2014, he gained a Masters in Contemporary Digital Art at the University of Malta. Casha was also founder member of the Birkirkara Visual Arts Group (BVAG) and elected the group’s President from its inception in 2010 until 2014. He was also past Chairman of the Malta Trade Testing Board for photographers.

Locally, he has lectured on academic courses at the Institute of Art and Design, the University of Malta, Heritage Malta and numerous other schools and private entities and is Course Director for the MIPP. His Photography has been widely published, with no fewer than sixteen books fully illustrated with his images. Casha has staged numerous one-man exhibitions in Malta as well as in Italy, London, Corsica, United States and Sicily. He regularly acts as curator on various collective photography exhibitions, projects and publications. Casha’s standing in the international scene was further attested when, in 2015, he was chosen not only as a main judge for The HRH The Prince of Wales’s Commonwealth Environmental Photography Award, but also as curator for the exhibitions held in Malta and appointed picture editor for the ‘Out of the Blue’ book, published specifically for the occasion and launched during the CHOGM events in Malta.

Casha has already collaborated with APS Bank on the 2015 exhibition called ‘The Calm before the Storm,’ and ‘Vanishing Malta.’ In both projects, he was curator and also editor of the publications complementing both these exhibitions. Furthermore, in this same year, he was honoured by being appointed ‘Ambassador of Photography’ in Inner Mongolia, China. His links with the China Photographers Association (CPA) have already borne fruit through various exchanges and international exhibitions. The CPA is the largest photographic organisation in China.

Wherever he goes, his wish is not only to foster international photographic relations but also to raise awareness about Maltese photography. His latest contribution to local photography is his monumental publication ‘Photography in Malta – The History and the Protagonists.’ This academic volume painstakingly and meticulously traces the initial beginnings of photography in Malta from 1840 till the dawn of the digital revolution. It is a treasure of information and data not only for keen researchers of the subject but for all those who are interested in Malta’s history. The contents of this publication has safeguarded and recorded the fascinating story of Maltese photography for future generations. A fitting tribute to this work came when the Malta National Book Council awarded this publication Best book production of 2017.
