Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."  - Elliott Erwitt

Before focusing on underwater photography, Hamid had been involved in different aspects of tropical marine conservation in Mexico, Honduras, the Seychelles & the Maldives, from daily data gathering on coral reefs to working with communities on local environment management policies. Being in the water day after day gave him the opportunity to develop a passion for underwater photography. Establishing his own style, he refined his work to a minimalistic approach, working mostly with natural light, on basic composition & tones.

Driven by a fascination for the marine environment, photography gave Hamid the opportunity to capture rare moments in marine creatures’ lives and share them with others. People care about what they know. Through photography, Hamid found a way to reach people and raise their awareness about the fragility & vanishing beauty of our oceans.
