Hi and welcome to my website!
My name is Mostafa and I am a highly sociable Toronto based photographer specializing in shooting weddings, engagements and surprise proposals, casual and professional portraits, and events (Christmas parties, corporate events, birthday, baptism, Communion, bar/bat mitzvah etc.). In my career which began during my time in Australia back in 2011, I have done over 700 portraits and 300 events. That includes officially photographing the Australian then Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Australian Living National Treasure Thomas Keneally, and the Asian Cup 2015 in Sydney. So these three alone should say a thing or two about my prowess and experience.
I love meeting people from around the globe! In fact, I have shot weddings and engagements from over 30 countries including US, UK, Australia, Canada, France, Sweden, Romania, Israel, Denmark, Netherlands, Dominican Republic, Serbia, the Caribbean, China, India, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Russia, Iran, Lebabon, Egypt, Syria, Philippines, Vietnam, Congo, Brundi, Zimbabwe etc.
Education-wise, I have PhD in English literature from Australia focusing on cultural studies; my unique approach to photography is a result of my background and zeal to learn about languages and cultures. I published my first book with Peter Lang in 2019 (link to publisher & Amazon).
I use top shelf camera and some of the best in class glass and you can see my main setup listed below:
- Canon 1DX
- Canon 5D3
- Canon 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye
- Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L USM
