I'm a freelance photographer based in Istanbul, Turkey.
I shoot Weddings, Vacation, Lifestyle, Fashion, Commercial, Events, Conferences, photography.
I'm also interested in photographing Landscapes, Music Concerts, Street and Travel Photography.More about me:
My passion for photography started more than ten years ago, and I received my first digital camera to capture photos of my family during our summer vacation in a seaside city.
I didn't stop there. I took my camera with me wherever I went and started to capture the landscape of my city, "Cairo" portraits of my friend, and some street photography.
I wanted to dig deeper into photography and learn the basics and advanced photography techniques.
With self-study "thanks to the Internet" and financial support from my family, I got my first DSLR. Then I decided that I'll not pursue a career with my college degree; instead, I started working as a photographer.
Back in 2011, as The Arab Spring rose in my country Egypt, I was there to document the Egyptian revolution through my lens.
I started working as a freelance with some advertising and media companies covering events related to Cinema and TV, like Movie premieres and Cairo international film festivals, until I decided to shoot Weddings and did it for more than five years before moving to Istanbul, Turkey in 2016.
Starting from scratch in a new country where you don't know the language was very challenging, but after living for more than five years in Turkey, I can say it was worth it.
I love Istanbul and Turkey in general. I like nature, the people, the culture and the food :) Awards: 2012 - 3rd Place "Bronze" in Jordan 10th International Photography Festival. 2013 - One of top 10 Finalist in Scott Kelby's Photo Walk "Leader Competition." 2013 - Honorable Mention in Sharjah Award Photo and my photo get printed in the award catalog. 2014 - INDIAFRICA Photography Contest 2014 Top 20 Winners. 2014 - 1st Prize in Nikon MEA #IAMAMOVEMENT Motion Themed Photo Competition. 2016 - First place "Arab Cup Award" in Sharjah Arab Photo Forum "Egyptian Team."
