About Photographer

An award-winning hobbyist fine art B&W photographer who often seeks the abstract and the minimal in architecture and seascapes using daytime long exposures. I am a Syrian expatriate of Circassian descent currently living and working in Saudi Arabia. At the end of 2014 and at around the age of 30, I picked up a new hobby: photography, and so far I haven't let go. In the beginning, I explored portrait and landscape photography, but I always found myself generally gravitating toward the abstract and the minimal. That's why I'm currently focusing on black-and-white fine-art photography, and particularity the application of long-exposure and advanced B&W processing techniques to architectural and seascape photography.
