Omar Saad

/biography

My name is Omar Saad, an award-winning Landscape and Underwater photographer. I love taking photos of nature on land and underwater. I love exploring remote landscapes and documenting everything I see with my photos. I believe this way everybody enjoys my trips.

I love the magic of light, nature, and the wild. Photography is not just clicking the shutter, It is a passion, it is more about feeling the scene. I see, feel and then the shot just happens.

I am based in Vancouver, Canada. I am lucky to be living in British Columbia as It offers so much in the way of pure, unadulterated natural beauty. The dense forests, stunning fjords, flowing rivers, and mountain peaks are among the most beautiful in the world.

I was born in Egypt where the art of photography started, they just used nails, hammers, and walls instead of cameras and photo papers, no limitations keep an Egyptian from being an artist.

My first SLR was a Zenit EM, a gift from my Mom. A 1984 model which was entirely manual. That’s how I learned to be a photographer. Thanks my Zenit and thanks, Mom.
