Photographer & Drone Operator

Director of Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan website


Ever since his young age, Majed AlKatheeri has been passionate about photography. Among the photographers, we have nicknamed him AlMayedy. After enrolling to Abu Dhabi Higher Colleges of Technology and majored in engineering, he continued to manifest his love for photography. When in school he used to grab every single opportunity and take a nature walk taking photos.

 

He started photography in the year 2008, in London and ever since he has made several signs of progress. Conversely, he is highly talented when it comes to taking photos and since 2012, he started covering many events which enabled him to finally major in commercial photography. As time changes, he continues to fall in love with nature, landscape photography, and wildlife. 

 

Having taken photography as a lifelong profession, he explicitly developed a love for explorations and nature walks. Currently, to get a clear, perfect and most enticing shot, he usually climbs high mountains and consequently engages in camping safaris. This has boosted his photography skills making his expertise and specialty high demanded and competent.

 

With the love and passion for photography, he has adapted to traveling to different developing countries such as Afghanistan and some African countries that have great sceneries and beautiful landscapes. In his career, he has managed to be a founder of more than one Emirati photography teams and has provided for more than ten photography workshops. This has made him intellectually skilled and boosted his photography talent.

 

During his free time, he enjoys reading, scuba diving, Jet Ski, motorcycles, bicycles, and discovery. Bonding this with the photography keeps him enlightened, happy and fruitful professional photographer. By summing up, I can say that he is entirely dedicated to helping other people develop their photography talents and passions making them achieve their life goals.
