More about Wasim M...

What do you love about your job?
I love everything about photography, from telling stories, to meeting people, to gaining access to events, situations, cultures and viewpoints that I may never have had access to otherwise. I feel these interactions and experiences help me grow both professionally and personally. Perhaps most importantly, photography allows me to point my lens at all the beautiful that life has to offer, in a way that makes me remember that every day, all the time, everywhere, there is something beautiful...we just have to remember to be aware of it.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done everything from product photography to portrait shoots to property photography to travel, editorial and outdoor shoots, and each and every one of them is special in their own right. I try to remind myself that not only am I fortunate to be able to be there, at that moment, capturing the intention of what I'm standing in front of, but I'm also fortunate in that the subject itself has trusted me in that role. And I do not take that lightly. I'm very humble and grateful for every day that I get to do this and I think that enthusiasm for what I get to do shows to my clients, who often times become my friends.

A fun fact about this photographer
I once published a music magazine because I thought it would be a good idea while the music industry and publishing industries were both on the decline. It wasn't a good idea. I once opened an organic cafe because I thought it would be a good idea during a recession when all businesses were on the decline. It wasn't a good idea.Oh, and I love tacos. A lot. Tacos make me very very happy.Tacos are always a good idea.
