Art Is Not What You See, But What You Make Others See.

So the day has come, the doors of the gallery exhibiting my work are open, and for the first time I got to stand beside my photos and hear what people actually got to say about it. I must say, it is a very different feeling than reading Instagram comments.  It is not the first time that my work is being exhibited, but it is … Continue reading Art Is Not What You See, But What You Make Others See.

Crossing the Bridge to Tolerance.

2019 is a year of Tolerance in the UAE.

Hello dear curious friend, tell me, are you fascinated by the desert? It is a place full of wonders, and obviously sand.

My favourite 2017 images (a year shot with Fuji)

Everyone is tempted to draw a certain line at the end of the year, which I guess provides a certain psychological closure on a pathway to a better and newer you… at least in theory. Last year was quite an amazing year for me professionally, and in terms of my personal photography as well. I met so many great people, some of who turned into … Continue reading My favourite 2017 images (a year shot with Fuji)

Are You Doing It for the Money?

Two month ago I was contacted by an agency who asked me if I was interested to shoot landscapes for them, and in those landscapes there would be some influencers and luxury watches. They wanted me to shoot beautiful landscapes like they saw on my instagram and would inspire people to travel. Great, I thought, it was the first time someone wanted to hire me … Continue reading Are You Doing It for the Money?

My Story of That Last Thing I need to get or You Already Have All You Need for Happiness.

When I started taking photos for work, I had Canon EOS 1100D, which is a very basic level cropped-frame DLSR camera, but still you can totally take decent photos with it if you have a good lens in your bag… but I remember how it bugged me to go to some event, and I have this shitty DSLR and everyone would have a fancy 5D … Continue reading My Story of That Last Thing I need to get or You Already Have All You Need for Happiness.
