During my undergraduate degree along with other things like music and painting I started photography to experience this too.Of the artworks, only photography remained, and I wanted to experience everything in this area: news photography, documentary, advertising, nature, concerts, theater and more.During that time, I made studio lighting equipment and made a place for myself and started photography in the studio. For two or three years I experienced all kinds of photography and no claimed to be a photographer.
And then I realized that I was interested in human beings and that I could get closer to them. During that time, I made many trips, gradually targeting my travels and moving to documentary photography and humans.
My photos have gradually gained international and national attention . As a result, I found my target audience and, along with these, continued my schoolwork at the age of eighteen. I did student and psychometric projects so I could do my documentary photography trips regularly.
At the same time, I began teaching photography for a teen age group. After this course, I participated in group exhibitions and held my first solo exhibition four years ago in favor of children with immunodeficiency.
That got a lot of attention in the media, and even the sales of triplets, which motivated me a lot.
In the serious work of teaching photography, I have tried to use new techniques that focus not only on technique, but on trying to bring to life different concepts such as love, sacrifice, philanthropy in the minds of students, as well as techniques of mind development and change of mind. Live. One of these was that it would be played in a music class, and I would ask students to visualize different concepts, such as love, and think about the different layers of it, which would make it possible to convert different concepts with overt definitions. To take pictures. These courses made me invite me to the top schools of Iran, such as the path of growth, salutation, diligence, and giftedness.
I believe that photography is something anyone can do, and so I tried to organize courses and workshops for ordinary people from all walks of life to teach mobile techniques and photography techniques with the necessary techniques. So that everyone can experience the photography of different subjects with a look at them. In this regard, I held a course at the National Museum, after which I was invited to various Iranian cities such as Zahedan, Shahrekord, Sanandaj and Meybod.
I believe that the human subject of my photo in the documentary is part of the success of that photo, and I would like my subject to contribute to my success as well. In year 4, I took a picture of a girl named Zahra in a Kurdish village passing by. The photo at the Asian Festival in Japan took gold and then went to auction and was welcomed. I believe that after six years, I traveled to the city to find the village I had taken the photo from among the six villages we had gone to and Zahra to share in my success. It was very interesting to find her after six years in the six villages but at the same time difficult. I found Zahra and she is a part of my life right now.In the recent earthquake of Kermanshah in November of 2017 I went to the earthquake zone. The unfortunate situation there early in the event required further relief. I held out my hand and after photographing these aids, I was reminded of the Iranian people there again. The Kurdish portrait exhibition was done for this purpose, and portraits of Kurdish people were placed on the wall, which in fact became a personal idea by accident. The proceeds of the exhibition were used to establish a center for the education and recreation of children and adolescents in earthquakes.I have gained about 30 international positions in photography in my years of work and have done studio work for years to earn money so that I can travel and photograph around eleven different countries and cities in Iran. During this period, I had a successful studio in Tehran and also managed a part of Istanbul, where I did weddings, children and advertising. In wedding photography, I also embarked on the same documentary mentality, and in light of my age, personality, and occupation, and my studies in psychology, I began to photograph in natural light spaces.
