I am from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I have always been in love with keeping memories and always had a camera at hand during trips and special occasions. I started considering photography as serious hobby a couple of years ago and I got my first DSLR in 2008.
Aside from my profession as computer engineer, photography is now an integral part of my life. I strive to show the beauty of what I see and how I see it. I want to make beautiful photographs of locations I visited or moments I witnessed to represent the feelings I had at the time.
I have always enjoyed night and panoramic photography from the very start. Recently however, seascape and landscape photography took much of my attention but I still use the techniques I developed in my panoramic photography whenever possible.
