My Photography Journey..
I first ventured into photography about 20 years ago when I bought my first analog Canon camera. Before I knew it, I had created a small dark room in our house converting a small kitchenette into my little lab. I played around with various chemicals and papers and really enjoyed the flexibility and the science of film development. But working as a finance professional, my demanding job meant that this passion had to wait.
I moved to Dubai in 2006 and bought my first Digital Camera (Canon) in that year. Without the concern of the cost of film production anymore, I was able to experiment with various techniques and ventured into various different styles. I am mostly self taught, following some great photographers and learning by doing as I photographed my travels around the world.
Since then, I have run a Photo club in Dubai; covered a few commercial assignments; participated in exhibitions, and was recently published in a yearly calendar for an international bank based in London. I am still a keen learner but really enjoy sharing my passion and my discoveries with others.
I moved to the Netherlands in 2016 and spent few years exploring and discovering this historical and architecturally enriched part of the world before returning back to Dubai in 2019.
