Old saying that a picture is worth thousand words can be narrated in another way that a picture can speak a thousand words to a thousand different people having different languages. That is why I choose this media to express my feelings to the world. I am from Pakistan…land of K-2 & Nanga Pārbat. I am optimistic and most of time my photographs have a message of hope. I love life & light. God has generously gifted me with an artist’s eye. I am living in country side & enjoying nature. I am greatly interested in nature study & have a “Master of Philosophy” degree in zoology. My study topic was about the spiders. In photography I got a number of honors. Got prizes in most of national salons and a number of international contests. Got two Gold medals in “International Photographic Salon of Japan” and published in “Digital Photographer” magazine-Ukranian edition, as expert on photography in the East. Have permanent collection in number of Art Galleries.
