My home. I was raised in the city of Dubai all my life. 27 years, I’ve watched the landscape of the city physically change. However, I never truly knew about what my land had to offer until I ventured away from the city.
It is there I found love for my land. For it’s diversity, it’s culture, it’s modesty and harsh yet beautiful clime. When I came back, I also saw the cities in a different light, with more appreciation to its intricacies.
This is a collection of the images I have taken around the UAE. I hope you enjoy it, and even more, I hope that you join me one day in discovering more and more of it.
Oman, also nicknamed Norway of the Middle East, is full of history, culture and has plethora of geographic interests. The Hajar Mountains, the home of Jabal Shams sits as the highest peak in the GCC. Oman is a huge interest and land I am planning on truly understanding and exploring in the coming years. I also hope to conduct photo tours in the near future, so stay tuned and until then, enjoy!
My first trip to really explore the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) towards the end of summer in 2018. We ventured to Asir, located in the south west of the Kingdom and in short I fell in love. 22 degrees celsius in August in a blessing!
I have seen preserved culture and hospitality from the tribes of the Jaizan Mountains, visited abandoned villages with linger essence of Al Qatt Art, Seen jaw dropping settlements surrounded by trees as far as the eye can see. The plains of Najd are a sight to behold and Riyadh’s people are some of the most beautiful souls I have ever met.
Today, I find any excuse to visit Saudi again, and I hope these images inspire you to go too!
Collection of images from my time spent in Egypt over the last 2 years. I go there regularly (I am half Egyptian) and like to spend a majority of my summer there.
Far from the city, the air is clean, the people are beyond friendly and the sights are unbelievable. They also happen to have one of the most beautiful seas in the world!
Some images taken during a 10 day trip while participated for Habitat for Humanity in Zambia. The people there are beyond kind. During my time there, we got to interact with some of the kids in the neighbourhoods around us, and a short trip to Living Stone.
A country that truly is a hidden gem. Although I spent only a little under 4 days in the 9th largest country in the world, I wish I could spend 40 years. It’s geographies vary by a large degree, and I plan on exploring more of this beautiful land in the future.
Iceland needs no introduction, mostly ‘cause of the influx of trendy travels and social media. Nonetheless it is worth a visit regardless if you think you’ve seen it all.
These images were taken on 1 trip (the first I hope to be of many to come). Our days varied from extremely moody, to bright cloudless (but still cold!) days.
The last batch of images in this gallery were taken with an Ilford disposable black and white camera. I find the contrast enjoyable, compared the images at the start, which were taken with a Sony A7riii and GM lenses.
I hope you enjoy this collection.
My first trip to New Zealand, and one of the most influential trips of when I started taking photography more seriously. I got praised by a photographer I really look up to (William Patino) on his photography workshop throughout the southern island of NZ.
This country is something else lemme tell you that! Everything is so scenic you its hard to not stop the car and take a photo every 5 minutes. I’ve learnt a lot on this trip. It was the first time I felt that my photos are “good enough” and for the first time I’ve had a deep conversation with myself.
These images mean a great deal to me. I hope you enjoy them.
A collection of images I’ve taken in various countries around Europe. Some of which include the UK, Ireland and France.
Though landscapes and cultures are my element, these images are those of friends, family, events and people in my life that I think are worth sharing. I find the human element in these images captivating. I hope you enjoy them!
