I have had a passion for photography since as long as i can remember. Although i started it pretty late into photography, that is another reason why i want to catch up for lost time and do more. It was just one of those days when i was working in a sucky corporate job and decided that i cant do this anymore. I cant stop pretending to be something i am not. I quit and decided to follow my passion and become a photographer. Im a self taught artist who's main interest is fashion, lifestyle and glamour photography.
I have always been very generous in the use of colour and if you look at my portfolio, you will find elaborate use of it. Don't get me wrong, I love black and white but there are some images which just look better in rich colour.
For me, photography is fun. A few minds collaborating together to come up with a concept and use their set of skills to paint an image. That process of development is what attracts me to photography and somehow i have always been more attracted to people photography than anything else.
Why am i here on Model Mayhem:
I am a full time photographer and i consistently get quality work in Pakistan (where i live). I have worked with one of the biggest names in the industry here and constantly get opportunities to work with top models and celebrities locally. My work is published consistently here in local magazines and newspapers and i I feel the time has come for me to expand my network and try to find work in other countries. Pakistan is great to start off with but after a while, one feels that i need to be at a place where the industry is more mature and there is a thirst to explore. There are a lot of concepts that i want to do for which i cant find the talent or the products for. This is where model mayhem comes in. I frequently visit London, UK and i would like to network more with photographers, MUAs, stylists and models based in the UK so that whenever i visit, i can plan shoots with them before i get there.
International exposure always brings a new dimension to ones work and helps them grow as artist. Although i have done a few fashion/glamour related shoots on my last visit to London, i am hooked and would want to do more.
If you like my work, please try to comment on it, add it on a list or tag me and show your love. Currently i am not accepting any TFCD work in Pakistan but would like to break into the industry in the UK and would be willing to do TFCD shoots with focused talented individuals . Please get in touch with me if you feel that we can make a team together.
If you plan on vanishing on the final day of the shoot, PLEASE DONT CONTACT ME. If we do a TFCD shoots, you will get a low resolution link to the post processed images which will be watermarked. If you want high resolution images, we can settle it on a small fee.
