    PHOTOGRAPHERS
    Hassan Nezamian
    I launched my career as professional freelance photographer when I was awarded my first photography certificate in 2006.

    I graduated from the University of the arts London in 2015 with honor bachelor 2019s degree and master 2019s degree in photojournalism and documentary photography in 2017.

    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.

    Two bodies of work have been published since 2009. Iran Water, Wind, Soil in documenting Iran 2019s natural landscape and Bitterness of war which depicts the long-term effect of war in Bosnia.

    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.

    La Grande Photo Awards Nominee photo.

    I was on a photo workshop in the park with about 8 others. We set up for the night in the Cathedral Overlook campground. At about 3:30 am, the leader got us up and we drove, then hiked to this spot. We took astro shots, then waited in place for a couple hours until early light on the cathedral formations. This is was a merging of the two exposures that created this image.
