A photo can be taken by anyone, but to extract the quintessential feature of a given moment, the vibrant soul veiled beneath a sea of expressions and to preserve the dynamic caliber of emotions running rampant amidst one’s surroundings, are virtues that pertain only to the nature of an artist, who envisions a photo more than a mere standstill moment in time, but rather their canvas.
My name is Ahmed Nizam and I belong to a community of photographer’s revolutionizing the way photos are perceived—a timeless narrative brimming with life. I began my venture into photography in 2009 unaware of the stories I would reveal with each click of my camera. I immediately realized the diversity in my cliental—individuals from different walks of life, beliefs and personalities—and decided that my images would reflect such distinctions. I was eager to search beyond basic poses and capture moments of pure ecstasy; smiles breed in mischief, faces loomed in wonderment, gazes lowered apprehensively towards approaching admirers, laughter, tears and intimate moments between couples—I wanted to share a story in a way words could never provoke. Thus far, I have succeeded, undertaking a wide variety of projects from weddings, ad campaigns, corporate events and even fashion shoots throughout the country and internationally, developing skills that have enhanced my creative process.
My hopes are to provide an unforgettable experience for my cliental, creating images that capture more than a memory but also tell a story.
