About Photographer

Mohammad Maysami sees the world through his eyes and shows it through his lens. For him, photography is about chasing his vision and telling his stories as clearly and passionately as possible. He believes that photographs provide a unique medium to narrate stories in a universal language without any border. His goal is to use photo pixels as a physical medium to transfer messages beyond what is experienced from day to day, place to place, and person to person. Born in Tehran, Iran, his identity as a photographer began in his school years when he first noted his passion in photography with his father's old SLR camera and learned basic concepts of photography and film development. He earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical and petroleum engineering right before he moved to Canada to pursue his graduate studies in geophysics. He continued his studies in USA where he lives now. In those years, he started nourishing his vision and mastering his digital photography gears to record highlights of his days as seen by naked eye. It was not until recent years that he followed his passion in photography more seriously when he found himself behind the camera more than in front of it. After all these years, he has been to many different places and he has not missed a chance to capture what he finds extraordinary and interesting. His main focus is on conceptual photography and he believes and stress on minimal digital post-processing. He frames not only the beauty but also the concepts in still life, abstracts, people, urban, and landscape genres. Mohammad is flourishing on the journey he began all those years ago and via this website he invites you to join him and to share his story.
