I Shoot People (for a small fee)

Hi everyone!
My name is Mostafa and I’m a highly sociable peoples’ photographer. I enjoy talking to you and shooting you at your best. Before relocating to Toronto in 2016, I worked in Sydney Australia as a photographer since 2012 so many of the photos on my website were actually shot there.

I have more than 600 portraits and 300 events under my belt, including officially photographing Australia’s then Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Australia’s National Living Treasure Thomas Keneally. I also shot the Asian Soccer Cup in January 2015. So these three alone should say a thing or two about my prowess!Mostafa Photography

Education-wise, I have a PhD in English Literature. Having studied cultures and traveled quite a bit in the past 10 years, I pride myself in having done weddings from over 25 countries. To top that up, I can speak many languages, from fluency to basic communications including Persian, English, Mandarin Chinese, Malay, Portuguese, French, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Russian, Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese, Tagalog, Turkish etc.! So that brings an elevating uniqueness to my artistic and cultural craft.

In my gear, you’ll find expensive top-shelf cameras and best in class lenses available to the mortals to ensure quality photos every time (see below). In the past years, I have had a huge clientele kind enough to share their testimonials with you. For packages and pricing, please contact me. I’m very quick to respond back because I’m always excited to hear from you! Cheers!
