Instructor Bio

I’m Hamad Al Qaoud, I have a bachelor degree in Business Administration and MBA in Human Resources and Organization Behavior.

I am a self-taught photographer, I always had the passion for taking photos since I was a kid where I remember the joy and smile on my face when I see my pictures printed from the film I got for my Kodak camera and how we used to go to the studio as a family and get those everlasting photographs.

I realized that I have a talent when people started asking for my behind the senses photos from the photoshoots i used to do with Fashionet.

My work always come from inspirations and things that inspire me even a simple quote or a song could turn into a beautiful photo. And what I specialized in shooting is fashion photography, editorials and family portraits.

I had a moto in my head “Let the work speak for itself” and indeed with time i I started getting hired by magazines and international brands.
