I’m an 18 year old Egyptian currently living in Cairo. I am currently taking a gap year before starting university, however I am working and practicing photography throughout my daily routine. As for my less cliché introduction.. I’m more likely a 5’5 short teen who is absolutely passionate and in love with the world of photography, but alike most other teens, a little afraid and shy of the rest of the world.
My love for photography began at the age of 13 by simply holding my older sisters new camera and I couldn’t resist the art of finding the perfect lighting, portraits or random pieces of scraps on the streets that made an odd yet beautiful photo. That is when I began teaching myself the arts of photography, and learning all the techniques and basics I needed to know; It became my desire, and sooner than later, despite any opinions me and my size 6 feet began to chase my dream of learning the art, demands and needs to become the best photographer I could be.
I began my journey by working as a business coordinator at a photography school which was where they taught me a lot. They believed in me and taught me to believe in myself and have confidence in my work. They opened my eyes to new experiences and meeting experts I never thought I would, that brought me to create the art I do today.
I recently realized that my unique work is best portrayed through portrait photography. I have a passion for capturing souls and identity through photos, and that is what I am currently trying to accomplish.
