Interview with Fares Al-marri (@974m0)
Thank you so much for doing this interview with us! Could you tell us about yourself?
This is the least I could do. My name is Fares Aslam. I am a photographer from Qatar.
Can you tell our readers about how you started this journey?
This might sound like every other artist, but really I don’t know when it happened. I was a young child who struggled with words. I just couldn’t express myself through words. Whenever I felt terrible, I would just open my camera and go out and take photos. This activity really changed my mood.
Do you have any tips for our readers who want to be a photographer?
My tip would be to never give up. Photography requires lots of patience. You won’t get the perfect shot in every first click. Sometimes it could be after your tenth or more. You need to believe in yourself and keep trying. Also, there could be times when people don’t appreciate every photograph you take, but don’t give up. What matters the most is that you are satisfied.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you also tell us why is it so special?
My favorite quote is very self explanatory which goes like “Photography is the story I fail to put into words.” Like I mentioned early I struggled with words, but with my images I say everything buried in my heart without using my nemesis ever.
