I took up photography when I realised it has the ability to narrate a story. And that eventually took me to photographing weddings. 
 
In the course of covering more than 150 weddings in the past five years, I have realised that I merely want to stay as witness to the weddings I photographs. I strive to make photographs that are true to the couple and could essentially take them back to their wedding day whenever they look back at the photographs. I value the interaction between the bride, groom and their immediate family. 
 
I also passionately work as a doctor alongside my love for photography. 
 
Among other achievements, I have been awarded by International Photo Awards (IPA'2017), WPPB and Sony World Photo Awards. I have also had my photographs exhibited in more than 10 countries.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Bangladesh. Yes, I do charge extra travel fee when its not in my country.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

7 years. I have covered over 300 weddings as the main photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I want to stay as a mere witness to the weddings I photograph. I value the interaction between the bride, groom and their immediate family and want to create meaningful images which will take them back to their wedding day whenever they look at it. I also want to create few timeless staged photographs which are true to the couple.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

Mostly a self taught photographer, but I did take workshops on photojournalism from the maestro Abir Abdullah. I also did Joseph Radhik's wedding masterclass in 2017.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I got married 4 years back which has changed the way I look at wedding photos. I value real moments even more.
