Programme Manager, Fribourg University, Switzerland
Amer is an excellent professional, an inspiring artist and a dear colleague with a great sense of humour. We have engaged him on different projects during the last couple of years and were always highly satisfied with his outputs (video production; event, book and portrait photography). He is solution-oriented, open-minded and also possesses remarkable organizational skills. Amer is fully reliable and working with him is a real pleasure. I am looking forward to continue our cooperation in the future.
May 11, 2016, Jasmina managed Amer at Photographic studio STUDIO MAO
Public Relations at United Nations Population Fund
I had the opportunity to work with Amer on several occasions for past several years. UNFPA took part in joint UN campaign “16 Days of Activism to End Violence Against Women and Girls” and Amer produced that campaign as a UN WOMEN Consultant. Among others, his main task was to think of a concept and propose several storyboards for the15- minute documentary film on new roles of masculinity. Afterwards he produced, shot and edited the film, which is still used across UN network in different gender-equality activities.
This year, Amer produced an UNFPA funded film on Healthy aging in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We hired him not only because of his extensive experience and background but also for his communication skills and attitude towards his subjects. Furthermore, it was a logical decision as he took all the tasks himself – he operated the camera, sound and light, organized shooting schedule, prepared the storyboard and scenario, edited the film, even doing a voiceover himself.
I would certainly recommend him to anyone who wants a reliable, professional and knowledgeable photographer/film maker, one that is great to work with.
May 9, 2016, Majda was Amer’s client
Senior Industrial Adviser EGP for European Bank Reconstruction & Development
I met the first time Amer by working as Advisor for a food Company in Sarajevo. Amer was the photographer for all food picture of that Company. Shortly we worked together in many projects for that Client, basically table-tops and beauty shots for all the new packagings. Amer understood immediately what we needed and the style I was looking for. I was fully satisfied and the Client too. After that, Amer worked on the web site with original and nice pictures. I also used Amer for the Home page slide show of the famous Italian Consulting firm GEA: by adding a simple Head to Amer’ selected photos, the site increased dramatically impact and uniqueness. See the great result on: www.gea.it
Amer is a great professional, with high knowledge of photographic technique and outstanding taste in composition and creativity.

I have worked with Amer on the visual design of more than three UN Women campaigns that aimed to promote gender equality and prevent violence against women and girls. He is a fast learner, proactive, understands what the client is looking for, has patience, respects deadlines, is sensitive and a great team player. He is also a very creative professional and a perfectionist in his daily work. For our campaigns he had to deal with a huge number of people and everyone was always pleased with him.

January 11, 2013, Sabiha was Amer’s client
International consultant at United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)
I was initially impressed with Amer’s enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanor when I hired him to lead and implement the last year’s Say NO – Unite! 16 dana aktivizma protiv nasilja nad ženama campaign. During the three months of campaign design, preparation and implementation Amer reported to me (I have since moved on to a different job), he consistently demonstrated all of these qualities and more.
Amer is reliable, dedicated and eternally upbeat. His work is of the highest quality whilst he still manages to multitasks effectively and to handle a high-volume workload. He consistently met or surpassed our expectations during the campaign.
Of particular value to me was Amer’s player mind-set and ability to work with minimal supervision. I regularly received unsolicited praise from partners commending Amer’s outstanding level of service, professionalism and follow-through.
Amer is a hardworking, top-performing photographer and campaign leader and has my highest recommendation.
November 23, 2011, Anamaria was Amer’s client
Data Centre Network Manager at The University of Sydney
Amer and I worked together for nearly four years. He is by all means one of most pleasant colleagues I have ever worked with. Personally and professionally, Amer was never lacking enthusiasm for any work that he took upon himself. Although formally working in ICT, his passion for photography was unmistakeable, and as his friends and colleagues we were his closest targets. His talent became apparent and he was often commissioned by HJPC and other organisations to perform photo shoots for formal events. Soon, he held his first solo exhibition and was accepted as a member by the Association for Applied Artists and Designers of Bosnia and Herzegovina. I have nothing but greatest respect for Amer whose persistence, talent and enormous amounts of hard work brought him to become a professional photographer par-excellence, particularly in a very difficult and stressful economical environment. Personally, Amer is one of the greatest friends anyone could ever hope for, and it is my privilege and honour to call him a friend. I would recommend Amer always and without hesitation.
