About the Artist:

I'm an amateur photographer born in Saudi Arabia in 1981, educated and lived in the US for 12 years. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems from the University of Tampa. After failing to develop a talent in Art & Design, I fell into photography by chance in 2004 and started learning about it on my own without taking any classes or reading any books. And after 5 years of photography experience I was awarded the title "Travel Digital Photographer of the Year" in January 2009 by "Digital Photographer Magazine". Traveling around the world photographing places that catch my eye from unique perspectives is my passion. Reflections is the subject I love most in photography, along with Architecture and Black & White. My photographs have been featured in numerous publications in the US, Europe, and the Middle East. They have also won a number of international awards. While Photography is just a hobby I pursue when traveling, I work as an IT Business Analyst in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
