My Photography Background

My name is Omar Shamma and my love of photography started when I joined my school photography club, and discovered picture taking, developing and printing. My first camera was a pin-hole camera, which I made out of a shoe box! Later I bought a Kodak Instamatic, spending all my pocket money on film, "Magicube" flashes and prints.

Photography and Travel

During my initial working years my photography was restricted to family events and vacations. Then, as my career took me all over the world, I started to document in pictures the places I visited. This experience allowed me to develop my street and travel photography skills.


Sharing Stories

Now retired, in beautiful Scotland, I am devoting more time to my passion. I hope that through my photographs and books I can share a few stories about my travels and inspire you to take up this fantastic hobby.
