 About . . .

 

BIOglS.jpegI was born in Fereydonkenar, Iran in 1975 and moved to the tehran,iran with my family in 2000 .I have been free lance photographer since 1995 .Holder of a bachelor's degree in computer, graduated on july. 2000.

As a kid, I may have been attracted to photography because it could extend my vision - bring things closer so I could see the details. But then I discovered I could use it to see things people with good vision couldn't. Now *that* was satisfying! Turns out the truth is, when it comes to photography how well you see has only a little to do with how well you "see".

For me, it's more about the other kind of "vision". It's about light, composition, form, simplicity. It's about capturing and conveying those elusive moments that tell little stories - or suggest an essence, a mood, a message or a mystery.

Most of my work is spontaneous and unplanned. I put myself in an interesting place, and let the light and my eye lead me to a subject. It almost doesn't matter what subject. Then the fun begins. Shooting handheld, I become like a kid - curious, excited and willing to see things in new and sometimes odd ways. I look closer, I ask what if?, I crawl on my belly, I jiggle the camera. It's way too much fun and should probably be illegal.

I've been shooting stills since I got that first canon A1 as a kid, and although I've taken a few classes over the years, I've mostly learned by doing, viewing, and frankly, screwing up. No doubt that will continue, but learning and growing as a photographer and an artist means trying new things and taking some chances. So that's what's up for me now - letting my camera and my lousy eyesight lead me to new ways of seeing the world. And hopefully, my photographs will help viewers remember what lives just beyond our daily "nearsightedness".

My artistry is a unique combination of the camera’s eye and the mind’s envision. It is his original method of mixing classic painting techniques and traditional fine art photography and latest digital tools that gives physical presence as well as emotionally dramatic lighting, greater range of color fidelity and extraordinary details.
