Marwa Essam : Capturing Beautiful Scenes

 Marwa Essam, an amateur photographer from Cairo, Egypt studied Accounting in school and is working today in Finance at an Oil and Gas company. He tells us a little about his story with photography.

My name is Marwa Essam, I am from Cairo, Egypt. I have always loved cameras and admired the good photographs I come across every day. in 2014, I moved to Cape Town, South Africa where literally everything around me was beautiful and every scene was worth capturing.

I spent most of my weekends exploring the city and taking shots.
I am more into Landscape photography but I shoot portraits sometimes. I find my source of inspiration in beautiful scenery.
I love shooting at sunsets and these are always my favorite photos.

When I look back at my work when I first started taking photos, I always think the best thing to help develop one's skills is to go out and take more photos. I also spend a lot of time looking at the work of other photographers for inspiration. Serge Ramelli is one of my favorite photographers for his beautifully composed photos and also his editing skills.

    I've come to know Marwa as a person of nature who really loves and appreciate nice views, also her interest in photographing was obviously noticeable, that's why I'm not surprised when I came to see this article.
