photography is my politics
As a photographer, editor, and journalist based in London, I specialize in covering significant social and political issues related to race, gender, identity, migration, and displacement caused by climate change and armed conflicts.
I hold a HEFAT (Hostile Environment First Aid Awareness Training) certification and have experience reporting on events such as the Arab Spring, the Syrian Civil War, and the aftermath of the Armenian-Azerbaijani armed conflict in Nagorno Karabakh.
In 2022, from August to November, I reported on the Russian military aggression in Ukraine. Additionally, I travelled to Moldova to observe and report on the impact of Russian territorial expansionist foreign policy on neighbouring countries.
For about four months, I also familiarized myself with the rising tensions in Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Serbia.
I am currently in London, preparing for another tour into the heart of armed conflicts that are disturbing the people of the world.

Why should you consider me for your photography assignment?
For starters, I possess excellent organizational skills and am able to meet deadlines that fall outside of your expected timeline.
Additionally, I have a comprehensive insurance coverage plan that includes health, life, equipment, liability, and business insurance. With over sixteen years of experience in the publishing industry, I have completed photography assignments in nearly 50% of the world.

When you receive the images I capture for your assignment, you won’t need to follow up with me to clarify details such as who is in each photo or what is happening.
I am meticulous in my approach and ensure that every detail is documented in the metadata, from identifying the individuals in each image and their age and status to crafting detailed and concise captions. You can trust that I will deliver high-quality images that meet your expectations and provide all the necessary information.
