About Me

Photography became my passion when I started borrowing my grandfather’s camera during summer holidays. As soon as I saved enough money, I decided to invest in my own camera and started carrying it wherever I went.

My profession helped me travel around the world and explore the different part of this amazing planet. Growing up in Qatar, graduating in Lebanon and working in Norway then France, I got exposed to a diversity of cultures, lifestyles, architectures and sceneries. My lense is my brush that paints scenes of beauty, character, and expressive feelings.


With years of practice, I managed to organize my own exhibition in Beirut, Lebanon and to publish my first book: Lebanon, A Journey of Splendor. This publication was a tribute to my homeland Lebanon.

Travel and photography have become part of my journey to see the world in a new way and I’m pleased to share some of my experiences with you through this website.

Each photo has its own story and I hope you'll fall in love with them as much as I did.
