I cover political events, local news and daily life stories such as fashion and concerts in Lebanon
One of my earliest memories of photography is taking pictures of a huge fire in a leather factory in Beirut in 2004.
I started photography as a hobby at the age of 10, then I went on to study it at college.
My first assignment was about the assassination of Lebanon’s former prime minister in 2005. I learnt that speed is very important in photojournalism.
The latest bomb explosion in Beirut left a big mark on me, because I was 80 meters away when it happened and I witnessed it from the beginning.
I’ve learnt never to panic when facing deadly accidents, but to keep focused and do my job.
The assignments that excite me the most are demonstrations, riots, conflicts and war.
I respect all photographers who endanger themselves to show people the suffering of others.
