A bipartisan bill was passed by the U.S. Senate committee that oversees NASA space projects. The bill would allocate $19.5 billion in funds to NASA in 2017, but it has a critical mission for the space agency: send men to Mars.

In my words:

I used to make images. Then I went to college, made images, and played records. I graduated from college, started working for a record label.

Then record labels went kaput. 

Then I wrote for magazines, mostly music and music production magazines and I started and published an internationally distributed music, arts and politics newsstand magazine.

Then the print industry went kaput. 

I then spent half a decade making videos for Mattel, Gap, Armani, Warner Brothers. That had to stop. Edit caves are dark. I like sun. I moved into the hills, started editing a wellness magazine, and helped open an organic cafe in Santa Barbara. 

Then the economy went kaput. And the cafe, and the magazine, and my mind, with it. 

So I started volunteering at the State Parks. 

And I started making images again. 

Life is funny like that.

In addition to working as a photographer for and his property and real estate photography company, Pro Property Photos, Wasim is currently creating photography and video assets for VectorMount for GoProAirbnbWhoHasItApp.comCitizine.TvDrift101, the World Forestry Center, and the PTTOW influencer marketing summit, an annual event bringing together global power players from Quincy Jones to the Dalai Lama to the executives behind X-Prize, Red Bull, and VICE Media. He is also one of 50 official Samsung Camera Imageloggers, making him a brand ambassador for one of today’s most innovative lines of mirrorless interchangeable lens camera systems, and is the creator and lead of popular social media platform Ello's official Outside Community, ElloOutside.

Muklashy was also a co-founder of an organic cafe in Santa Barbara, California, and has done media work for The Annenberg Foundation, USC’s Marshall Schools Of Business’ Social Innovation program, and award-winning producer and TEDx presenter Frank Fitzpatrick’s Earthtones foundation, dedicated to ‘transforming the human spirit through the power of music and film,’ including an interactive digital publication designed for the arts and music curriculum for the nation’s schools.

Wasim devotes much of his time to various humanitarian and environmental causes, currently serving as a volunteer docent in the California State Park System, where he has self-tasked himself to develop original multimedia assets to help bring more attention to our underfunded protected public spaces. He spends whatever time he has left documenting the state’s surrounding parks and landscapes through photography.
