Mohamed Mekhamer is my name I'm a freelance photographer specializing in Wedding, Portrait and also photograph Landscapes, Music Concerts, Events and Street Photography.
More about me:
First of all I’m from Cairo, Egypt ... Yes Pyramids, Sphinx and Pharaohs :) But now I live in lovely Istanbul, Turkey.
My passion for photography start more than 8 years ago when I received my first compact camera to capture my family happy and important moments like a vacations and birthdays etc.. But I don't stop there I take my camera with me wherever I go and start love to capture landscapes and portraits of my friend and of course street photography this made me want to dig deeper in photography and learning basics and even advanced things about photography and there I decided that I'll change my career from Management Information System to photography.
With self-study “thanks to the Internet” and financial support from my family I got my first DSLR and began working as photojournalist as the Arab Spring rises in my country "Egypt" and I was there to document the Egyptian revolution through my lens, after a while I quit photojournalism because of police targeting anyone carry camera in the streets a even after bringing down Mubarak's regime and was dangerous to work like this besides that I was shooting landscapes, portraits and working as a freelance with some advertising and media companies covering events related to Cinema and TV like Movie premieres and Cairo international film festivals until I decided to shoot Weddings and that was turning point in my photography career.
