Don’t believe us? Read on to discover more behind Fakhri’s inspirations and to see some of his best photos for yourself.
COINAPHOTO: How did you first develop the interest in photography? Feel free to tell us any personal inspiring stories.
Fakhri: I first became obsessed with photography in high school however there was no one around at that time to advise me on it, so I started learning various photography skills through books, online videos and magazines. I kept trying to learn independently what it took to capture a great photo through these means.
COINAPHOTO: What kind of photography are you into?
Fakhri: I love photographing landscapes and local residents which is particularly interesting because you get to interact with new people and experience new things!

CoinaPhoto: Which photo of yours are the most proud of you and why – tell us a bit about your journey behind the lens.
Fakhri: I take pride in all my photos because every picture has a unique story behind it. The only real challenge that I ever face is hunting for the right setting as a subject for my photography. Most of my best photos were taken after 10-24 hours of walking and hiking. Quite often the weather conditions can have an adverse effect on a photographer’s mood but one must not let that get them down!
CoinaPhoto: Do you have any words of wisdom for budding photographers out there?
Fakhri: I am sure every photographer has his or her own taste. I personally believe that one should focus on what they have in front of them. The most important element is to focus on ones skills rather than the tools that can be used.
