Passion is a very powerful word. Since the beginning of his photographic journey, Sohel Ahmed, 27, has always been very passionate about photography. For him, photography is a place where he can find peace and happiness.

Ahmed lives in Dhaka and obtained his engineering degree in EEE from AUST. Photography first captured his imagination when he was a student. The first camera he bought was primarily for travel, but his interest started to grow gradually.

Initially he was into street, travel and lifestyle photography, but later he became interested in wedding photography, where he had the opportunity to work with moments, and started to work on compositions he learned while practicing street and lifestyle photography. He joined some of his seniors in college and started a business, “Reels and Stories.”

“When it comes to photography, the best feeling for me is when I’m able to bring out someone’s emotion when they look at one of my photos, whether it’s a smile, tears or My desire is that when someone looks at a photo taken by me after 10 years, the memories come back as if it were yesterday, and the emotion too,” says Ahmed.

When he started his career in wedding photography, he faced many challenges. In Bangladesh, it is not considered a respectable and wise career option. Sometimes he was very ambiguous about his career, but his passion helped him stay focused. Throughout his career, he has won numerous international wedding photography awards. He has won prizes for competitions such as “Siena Creative Photo Awards”, “International Photography Awards” and “Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year”. These inspired him and drove him forward.
