These two ingredients are one of my top favorite, and being a food photographer on a day off, I made a sandwich at home and just before I began to eat it, it occurred to me to photograph it. I literally drove took the sandwich and a few more as back up and drove to my studio in Amman, Jordan to photograph it. I decided on this angle in the end from 100's of different set ups as it shows the perfect sauce but also the meati-ness of the turkey to make anyone's mouth water, I hope.

This photo was made on September 7th, 2015, in Bahía de Kino, Sonora, México. During a photo session with a quinceañera, it was very noticeable that pelicans were everywhere, lost more than what we usually see. I did not want to miss the opportunity to photograph them, since they were so beautiful and close to us. Pelicans at the Cortes Sea.

In Bangladesh the Zitting Cisticola are known as Vomra Choton because of their small size. It is widely distributed warbler whose breeding range includes southern Europe, Africa, and southern Asia down to northern Australia. I took this photo from Ekuria, Dhaka.

I wanted the yogurt (Labneh in Arabic) and cherry tomato to feel as if they belonged on the thyme bagel. Poetically in a way to be as if sleeping on it. The arugula leaf only came at the end when I felt it needed an extra 'something'. This was done as a personal project as well experimenting with traditional middle-eastern ingredients and infusing them with western items, in this case, the bagel. With projects like these for myself, I tend to challenge how minimal can a food-shot get and yet still look mouth-watering. How basic can you go and still make it appetizing for the viewer.

This was one of my very first tries at photographing a steak. It was done for a client who is a close friend of mine and had just opened a new restaurant. He wanted to showcase how big the steak was and I decided to keep the focus on that and make it the hero of the shot but also take up most of the frame to accentuate the size of it on the plate. Needless to say my friend and client were happy with the shot and I was too and made me feel confident to cover future similar dishes.

This is a photo of a chandelier. The ceiling was a very high one, and the chandelier quite wide. In Las Vegas you can find this kind of decoration in many places. I looked at it, it really seemed to be coming at me, and then in there, I saw the photo. I like the color very much, it is so attractive to the eye, I don´t usually do abstract photography, but this one really catch my eye.

For this shot, I decided to make the cheesecake more of a work of art, like a painting, as how they used to do it in the renaissance with natural sunlight from the side. I had visions of seeing it as a print in kitchens or sweet-shops maybe. Having a harsh sidelight to it was what made it for me plus the dripping sauce made of traditional arabic dates. The green backdrop was my idea to give it also a modern art-piece playing with colours that fit and complement each other.

It takes around 8 hours by boat to reach Tanguar haor, a unique wetland ecosystem. On your way you can come across thousands of domestic ducks walking or running on the newly raised land. Four of us went there during winter for birding, as that’s the best time to photograph migratory birds.

Brown-winged Kingfisher is one of the biggest and the most elusive kingfisher among all others. It was taken in Sundarbans, one of the largest mangrove forests in the world (140,000 ha).
