    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.

    Dearing the eclipse of 2017 my family and I sat in our backyard here in WA to watch the 93 totality with our eclipse glasses. With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I

I had a feeling that he was about to cross the road. My hunch was right. He crossed one fence and eventually crossed the other one. I was ready for his movement. I took a series over shots. It was very exciting.Canon EF 100-400 f4.5 - 5.6L ISO 4,000 f8 1/200s

This took me to an area of the park I had not been in. The way these two tulips were complete opposites and yet seem to lean on each other drew my attention to them.
