    I thought the course covered the basics of street photography very well. I come from a landscape background so it was very different from what I was used too. It made me look at the street very differently. As I walk around now I'm looking for reflections and how they can be used

    In the past decade, I have sharpened the broad range of skills in photography and applied them in a variety of photography sub-branches that rendered me unique opportunities as a photographer providing me with the chance to establish robust communication skills with people of various age groups and culture.

    Being behind a camera has donated me a full insight for perception of global phenomena and themes making me eagerly keen to convey my own definition of art and photography via my tools to the prospective photographers in the young generation.

    From 2010 to the present date, I have been documenting a series of projects; namely, refugee and asylum seekers daily life in cooperation with Mary hill integration network, diversity of leprosy in west Bengal India partially funded by The Leprosy Mission of England and Wales, Romney Marsh Wool in Southern England and West Wales was defined and implemented, Iranian Leaving room in London related to immigration of four generations of Iranian immigrants.

    I was invited to teach photography within the framework of art workshops in 2011 in Glasgow focusing on basics of photography and studio lighting.

    I have already had over 15 solo photography exhibitions in the United Kingdom during the past 10 years and also I was nominated in the following events for the prize.
