    Samira Hatamizadeh
    I am Samira.
    For ten years, I have shared everything I have learned and experienced about photography as a photography instructor, which makes me happy.
    I started photography by taking pictures of beautiful nature. After experiencing different genres of photography such as fashion, advertising, portrait, and ..., I am mostly fascinated with street and urban photography.
    Photography has always been the most significant personal way of dealing with the world around me, which enables me to feel the world without a come-between, even without a camera!
    My educational background has been in Visual Communication and Visual Anthropology, and I am currently based in London.

    Keanu is pampered, he is a good dog, who likes people a lot in general. He knows how to do a lot of things when he's asked, but since he's quite stubborn, sometimes he just decides he's not in the mood to listen&128514 , he likes to snuggle up in bed with us and always wants to be near us, wherever we are. I think this picture pretty much describes it, because as soon as someone comes, he is either right next to them or climbs on their head. He likes to play with his Gummy Bears, and with h

    A part of the movie LIFT was made in this location. There's a famous castle called Miramar. Interesting thing is when they made that scene at the castle they put that the castle was somewhere in Tuscany but it wasn't.

    I was focusing on a Marsh Harrier and when I put the camera down I saw this Robin perched on the edge of my table. He just stared at me and patiently waited as I reset the camera. I still had my zoom on and almost fell off my seat leaning to get focus. The images of this bird are among my favourite sets....

    Castle Hill is an amazing location for Landscape and Astro photography. Used a Nikon Z6ii & 20mm 1.8 lens along with a lens warmer plus the Photo Pills planner.The moon was brighter than expected - 5 days old but it actually did us a big favour in lighting up the rocks with the Milky Way core above it. This is the jpeg with no edits.

    I was on a photo workshop in the park with about 8 others. We set up for the night in the Cathedral Overlook campground. At about 3:30 am, the leader got us up and we drove, then hiked to this spot. We took astro shots, then waited in place for a couple hours until early light on the cathedral formations. This is was a merging of the two exposures that created this image.
