Can you tell me a little about your education, childhood passions, early exposure to photography and vocation?
I was born and raised in State of Kuwait. Photography was not part of my education during my studies as I have graduated in Bachelor Degree in Accounting, but it was a part of our family life. When I was about 7 years old I have witness the Gulf War in back in 1990 and before that time my father used to take a lot of pictures of us during our childhood life My father was a Journalist in a local news agency and a local news paper I remember him holding the camera and taking pictures of our childhood and daily life. I can say that I was fascinating with the final images when my father used to share the results of those memories.
Through those memories and 11 years later I was fascinating with the those results. So the first time held a camera was in 2001 where my father gave me an old Konica film camera and I used to take a lot of pictures specially with black and white films. Later I stopped because I was busy with my college study but after graduation in 2005 and a part of killing my free time while searching for a job I started taking pictures as a hobby with a simple point-and-shot camera of a sunset sunrises and people and the love of photography started at that point. Later in 2006 I owned my first digital semi-professional camera a Nikon D50 and evolved to a professional camera D700 later in 2007. During that time I can say I was searching for a type of photography where I can see my self in then I realized that I love Landscape photography and from that point I started to take it seriously.
