Born in Egypt mid 70’s and grownup in Alexandria one of the richest city in culture and nature, now living in Dubai one of the most growing cities in the world with more than 200 nationalities sharing the same locations and time, my photography passion have no limits. Two of my great passions in life are travel and photography. I believe that travel broadens one's view of the world. Experiencing other cultures, meeting people from other communities and other countries, seeing the beauty, and sometimes ugliness, of the world has helped me understand that all of our lives are at once interconnected and individual. It has made me better appreciate my own home and culture as well as that of the people I've met and the lands I've seen and I have become a much more tolerant person as a result. Through my photography I seek to document my own personal experiences, to capture scenes and events as I see them and to share with others the beauty and diversity of the world I've seen. As the images of other photographers have inspired me to explore the world, I hope my own contributions will inspire others to do the same. I view the art of photography as a subtractive process, a distilling of reality into a personal vision. As such I often use the tools of modern photography to try to capture in an image the emotions I felt at the moment I tripped the camera's shutter. Though originally trained as a computer engineer and currently working for a leading ISP in the ME region, I have been involved in photography since childhood. I experienced a renewed enthusiasm and appreciation for photography after my first photo taken by a borrowed camera in a black and white film, My photography journey started. During my school time I had the chance to discover my country different cultures and locations, camera always in hand, which resulted in an ever growing library of slides and negatives documenting my adventures. In 2002 I start travelling outside my country to discover the world with more cultures, locations, photography became a second nature and with the appreciation feedback from those whom had a chance to see my photos, a serious hobby began to transform into a business. Today I license images for all manner of commercial and editorial use. I specialize in commercial and advertising photography and my work includes subjects ranging from product, events to people and local culture to abstracts. I also specialize in shooting portrait and head-shots. Yasser Kassem Dubai, UAE
