This fortnight we speak to this talented young photographer about her creative journey

Tell us about your introduction to photography.

I don’t remember it in particular, but as far as I can recall, I used to take self portraits in grade 10. Then I started photographing people, since I love exploring new places and meeting new people.

Who are your biggest influences?

There are so many. But I absolutely love Natasha Zubair, because her work ethic is amazing. Apart from her, my sister has been my rock since day one and I’m quite proud of her journey as an artist; it really inspires me.

What is the creative process like when you’re preparing for a project?

A story is very important to me, so I always create an inspirational mood board and share it with my client or model and see if it matches with their vibe.

How do you balance work with your education?

As a medical student it’s kind of hard, but I try my best. Recently, I’ve had to skip some exciting projects, but I guess that’s part of life.

What’s been your favourite photograph or project so far?

A fashion shoot that I did for for Hira Ali. I love it when designers give you creative freedom and trust you with your perspective.

What equipment do you use?

I use a Nikon D750 with a 35mm lens.

How would you describe your photography style?

I love doing portraits and fashion photography. Sometimes I do wedding shoots too, but only if my clients understand my art and perspective. So, my style is mostly comprised of candid, colourful portraits with a play on light and shadow.

What’s a piece of advice you always keep in mind?

Keep going. Never give up. NEVER! And the only person you should compare yourself with is who you were yesterday. You are your biggest competition.


Good Times
