About Photographer

I was born and raised in Tehran/Iran and studied computer engineering. My father had his own photo printing business bought me a small Mamia film camera when I was 8 years old and thought me how to load film in to the camera. When I became a teenager I started using his Pentax camera. In 2007 after my trip to Europe and taking pictures with my Canon point and shoot camera I felt that I need better camera so bought my first DSLR camera and everything started from there. Photography gives me self-satisfaction, it is a tool to express myself, to connect to what I like and get disconnected from things I don’t like.
