About me


Hi, I’m Fahim Sayed. Welcome to cameranomad. Me

I’ve a camera, I wander and I take pictures. Sometimes for money, but mostly just because I love to.

My dad was really fond of photography. He had couple of these automatic film cameras. He’d click pictures of everyone on every occasion. However; I hated, when he clicked picture of me. While I’m playing or crying; especially I hated the pictures clicked whilst eating. But then, when I looked at those pictures, I’d be like ‘I can do better than that’. For reasons unknown, I never actually tried clicking pictures then. It wasn’t until few years back when I was introduced to a DSLR camera by a friend. He was learning photography and he used to teach me some basics.

One day I just picked up his camera and went on a stroll. I came back with few interesting pictures. Soon after that I bought my first camera a Nikon D60. I’ve been learning since then. Recently, I gave up my well paying full time job to pursue my future in photography. It wasn’t an easy decision to make, there was lot of opposition and I feared the future. But creating pictures made me happy, so I chose happiness.

I’m continually working on personal projects. Always thinking about new ideas for projects and places to travel. I love travelling, meet new people on the way, see new things. All these develop into new ideas, new traits, new friends and most importantly new pictures. More you travel, more you learn.

If you’re into such things, please stop in and say hello, ask a question or contribute some insights. Stay tuned as I will be adding content regularly.

  1. I just dropped in to thank you for recently following me, not sure how you found me even? But wow! That’s all I can say. WOW. Your photography is both deafening and silent all at once. Really potent images and I don’t normally get riveted by visual blogs unless there is also prose on the pages, being that I’m all about the written word. I just wanted to let you know that you have masterpieces here. Truly.
    take care,
    Stephanie

  2. Hi Fahim,
    Your pictures are beautiful. Truly wonderful. They manage to transport one to a different place. And I like the fact that you write something with each photo- gives us a peek into your mind and what went through it while you were clicking.
    Will stay tuned. Glad to have discovered your blog.

  4. Hats off to you for dropping your full time job to pursue your passion, and what you very rightly call it happiness. Those are such profound words. Pursuing a creative passion like photography comes with a lot of uncertainty – there’s no guarantee it will work out. But I suppose if you’re dedicated to what you do and you’re happy, things will work out. Good luck. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and I hope to take the path you’ve taken someday when the time is right 🙂

    I like that you plucked up your courage to venture on this!
    I absolutely love your clicks and words, keep it up!
    Photography is also an art, especially because you put your own words to every picture you click – that concocts an ARTISTIC effect on us, your fair readers! 🙂
    Glad to know you, and thanks for following my blog as well.
