Shams is a passionated Berlin based Photographer mainly focused on Urban, Travel & Documentary Photography. His visual journey is a perfect example for an early digital native who started in the field of mobile photography when created his first pictures with a small smartphone camera in 2013.
Since 2010 he has been working in Germany & UK as business professional for audio visual media in the international movie industry. During his work in marketing for an agency specialized in moving images & visual communication he bought his first own digital camera in 2014, when planned a spontanious trip to the UAE. Strongly influenced by digital photo communities like Instagram & Co., he started to photograph shapes & structures of urban architecture, long exposures in night photography & began to get up on urban rooftops to chase unique cityscape views at Berlin sunsets.
Directly after completing his studies in Economics & Marketing he also began to work as a freelance photographer in interior design, as well as business & artists portraits for small & medium-sized companies. With a creative background since his early youth - like street art & hip hop, Shams defines himself as an Berlin artist that finally just switched the art form but basically still only wants to express his thoughts, feelings & experiences in his visual work. From 2015-16 he established in the digital space as an Berlin Photographer known for capturing stunning cityscapes & authentic street portraits of everyday people. He got a fable for developing presets with a so called „moody“ look by „playing around“ with tone curves in post processing, to underline the pictures mood.
During the last couple of years he won different local & international photo contests. His pictures are featured & published by several photography platforms & magazines worldwide now. His work is already been exhibitioned in Berlin, New York – and also soon in Frankfurt. He been working as an inhouse photographer for a german health & lifestyle magazine, as well as a content creator in digital campaigning for leading lifestyle brands & advertising agencies. This diverse experiences now brings him on the point of personnel development to create more photo series & conceptional work in future by making his first steps into photo journalism.
In 2016 he has been requested to take the chance testing the OMD-E 5 MK II - a small & discreet camera with silent shutter mode, 5 x pic stabilizer & a much higher rate of pics per seconds – thats exactly what he needs out on the streets, he said. Since that days he don´t want to put away the E-10 with its excellent lenses. Since 2017 he cooperates exclusively as visionary for Olymups Europe.
