About me

My photo  

Born and raised in Muharraq Bahrain, I'm passionate about documentary and travel photography focusing on culture, architecture and traditional ways of living. Capturing moving objects or vibrant colors are what keep my photos alive. I carefully choose my travel expeditions to showcase new cultural destinations through my lens. I produce multimedia stories, merging still photography with ambient sound and musical tracks. Coming from a purely Finance background, colors and creativity are what keep me going and every day is a battle between my left and right brain!
