About me

Welcome to my life…

Welcome to my world…

 

In the dawn of 18th January 1990 I was born in the magnificent island of Bahrain – only a few kilometers away from my hometown Qatif,Saudi Arabia. I spent the first three years of my life in Bahrain. However, my family and I moved to Riyadh,Saudi Arabia in 1994. I was blessed to have two loving parents and two loving older brothers. I spent my early childhood and teenage years growing up in Riyadh. I graduated from Riyadh Najd Schools in 2007. Prior to my high school graduation I realized that the upcoming step was only the beginning of a long journey. Growing up, I realized that living for the sake of living had never been my objective in life. I have always aspired to get the best out of life. The desire to be fully satisfied with my life had let me to sail abroad to the University of Otago located in Dunedin, New Zealand to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a doctor. I spent the first 4 years of my New Zealand life in Dunedin. However, in early 2012 I moved to Wellington (capital of New Zealand) to complete my clinical years in medicine.  I hope that through medicine that I will be able to help humanity and make a contribution, however small , to the overall health of the world.

My journey with photography started at the age of ten. My dad had returned from a business trip from Dubai,United Arab Emirates and gifted me a simple Olympus film camera. Since then, I started taking photos of school trips, family events and things around me. Ever since then, I feel like it’s only with photography that I can ‘freeze’ a specific moment in time. It is only with photography that I can take something that makes the viewer wonder. My ultimate purpose is to capture an image, something that can alter the state of mind, change a point of view, convey a message and show the others the world as I see it . Photography has enabled me to appreciate the environment that surrounds me and it has enabled me to view the world from a different prospective.

I am a member and organizer of a Saudi based photography group ‘Hamasat’. The group started in 2006 and since then we have had 7 annual exhibition. My main responsibility is to recruit international photographers to participate with us. Our last exhibition in 2014 has attracted 474 photographers from 47 different countries.
