What did you do in college?
I left college and focused on photography because I thought I would become something in the future.
What are the things that matter to you the most?
Of course, my family is my first concern. I am also always wondering about how to create new photos and videos that are unique.
What does a typical day in your week look like?
I almost shoot daily. Most of which are advertisements and most of them are collaborations. When I have nothing to do, I go to my friends and play some music because I like music. I play the guitar, piano and DJ and make some tunes. I have four songs for now, But I do not want to show this to the people because most of what I do is Western and not Arabic, so they don’t give me attention.
Are there key people or books that have moulded you?
The camera is what made me the way I am now because when I saw the first picture, I was curious to know more about it, and I did.
Tell us the story behind your favourite picture?
When I felt frustrated that there was not enough support for me, I said to myself, I will show this world what is going on in my mind when I’m broken, and you are indifferent to what I do so I put the whale next to me because he is alone like me.
Where do you see yourself in the future?
I don’t know yet because I’m swimming in the space of full ideas. I’ve made some achievements that I want, like making people when they see any picture of my pictures they know that it’s me who did it and I want to make my name as a brand, not just a regular photographer, and I work with a lot of big companies.
We hope you enjoyed it and we thank Ahmad Almalki for this interesting interview.
