A visual storyteller, documentary and press photographer based in Iraq.

Welcome to my blog.

 

Everyday carry After I recently bought the small and lightweight sony a6000 mirrorless camera (bottom right) I found it very easy to carry everyday and much easeful in carrying around than my 5D mk3 and a 35mm lens which I was doing photojournalism with it for a year.. Of course there is a big difference when it comes to quality, hard work and environment but this small one is doing good for its size and it’s quite fast, also useful where I live since security is tight and people not very comfortable with big DSLR all the time.. Planning to keep my 5D for big missions..  #everydaycarry #documentary #iraq #kit
