    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.

    This photo is from early in my photography journey. I attended one of my first Seattle-based photography meet-ups and after the meet and greets, we split into small groups to find some compositions. I had been playing around with long exposures and light trails and the bright lights from the Great Wheel caught my eye. I spent a good amount of time that evening making new relationships and capturing this image.
