Moon photography is very underrated Knowing where to stand Running to catch that frame Having the right gear Knowing how to use that gear Endless trial and error Bloody clouds I could go on, but I’ve been shooting this object back when all I had was a phone with a camera in it and I just can’t stop #WHPoneday #QamarSeries @burjkhalifa #DearMoon

A tough trip. But a good trip ️ – If you’ve been around here a while you’ve seen this post before. But if you are new here, this is one of my favorite shots ever. Things you don’t expect, but when the moment happens, you must be ready to snap in a milli second – #shotoniphone #whpmovement

One of the reasons I love to visit places of worship is that I find allot of peace and tranquility in them. This isn’t strictly Masjids, I have found the same harmony in Churches, Temples and the like. The other reason is, being a photographer, I love to observe those searching for that same peace. .

“Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life” – Rumi . One of my favorite shots from our trip to Morocco 🇲🇦 earlier this year. I am so grateful for all the places I have been able to visit this year. Photography and the arts have completely transformed my life. This was all just a dream a few years ago . In Frame: .

Divine Light ️🕌🏛 • Probably one of the most incredible buildings ever built, the Hagia Sofia. It’s nearly 1,500 years old. It’s dome almost feels suspended. It means so much to so many people. As one tourist said to me “this is heaven on earth”. • I reflected this shot because despite going to 3 times in 5 years the building still has major renovation works going on, which means one side is full of scaffolding. Hopefully when I’m back I’ll be able to capture this building properly in all its glory. •

T H E A R T I S A N S 👨🏼🎨 • It’s the artisan community that impressed me the most in Morocco, especially in Marrakesh. Extremely talented, skilled, and holding onto centuries of traditions. There are so many that it’s almost ordinary to see them, but just watch them for a while and you’ll be in awe. And then be prepared to buy something because they are great salesmen too @passionpassport

“I give infinite thanks to God, who has been pleased to make me the observer of marvelous things” – Galileo 🌕 • One of the most difficult shots I’ve ever executed, not only because the camera I had at the time sucked in low light but because of a nagging tourist who kept shoving her camera at me to change the settings so she could get this shot too 🌝 • WOW, got a ton of print requests for this one! DM me if you want one

“I looked in temples, churches & mosques. But I found the Divine within my ❤️” – Rumi • I’ve visited many places of worship, especially Masjids. Nothing compares to the work of the great chief Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan. With that, I’ve started a new project to visit every structure he’s ever made. This is the Suleymaniye Masjid, arguably his masterpiece. I absolutely love the energy of this place. The gentlemen sitting there is a scholar, I didn’t want to do what I normally do (shoot then ask if necessary) and asked him if I could take a picture. He smiled, gave me a faint nod and continued with his prayers

Enlightenment 🙏 • The incredible Ben Youssef Madrasa in the heart of Marrakesh. A centre of learning, not only about religion but a heavy emphasis on math and astronomy as well. Given its popularity, we headed out super early morning to be the first ones there to have the place to ourself

You Can’t Sit With Us • SATWA PROJECT COMPLETE 🚧 • I’ve been a neighbor of Satwa for over 6 years. A thin stretch of road divides fancy skyscrapers and this old neighborhood. It’s literally like walking from one world to another in a matter of seconds. When I started seeing the bulldozers roll in, I started documenting the area and have been for over 2 years. Now those houses I used to visit are all but gone, I’m guessing some kind of fancy mall will come up soon enough. I see this happening all over the city – my goal this year is to document these places. It’ll be interesting looking back at them years from now.

In the summer of 2014, production designer Arthur Max placed two photographs on a table in Ridley Scott’s Los Angeles office. Both looked much the same, revealing vast, desolate, reddish-coppery landscapes that seemed equally hostile to human life. One picture was of Wadi Rum, the high desert in southern Jordan. The other, shot by the Curiosity Rover, showed an even more remote location. “Which one is Mars?” asked the director. “Exactly”, answered Max @passionpassport
