Cairo based cinematographer known for Certified Mail (2019) Exterior night (2018) and turning ten (2019)

I Started my career in photojournalism during the Egyptian revolution in 2011, then directed two shorts, before deciding to pursue cinematography.

Since then I shot six short films and two feature films. “Exterior/night“ by acclaimed Egyptian Director Ahmad Abdallah, which premiered in TIFF '18 and Hisham Saqr’s debut feature film “Certified Mail” that went on to win 3 prizes in Final Cut competition in Venice International Film Festival '18 and had its world premiere in TIFF '19.
