Akhil Musthafa | A Journey of Inspiration Part 2

Here I am again with my inspiration series. For this week I chose a young photographer as an inspiration source.

Photography is an art, a talent, and a universal language. No words are needed to express what an image says. Whether you are from China, Qatar or Mexico, there is always some message that a picture will be able to deliver to you. I find inspiration in those people who can use photography to help people around, to show support, and most importantly deliver important messages through them.

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know. ” – Diane Arbus

Akhil Musthafa, a student who graduated from Ideal Indian School, Qatar  is now doing his bachelors degree. After realizing his passion, Akhil became the sort of person to look for ideas and inspirations everywhere. His companion is the camera; he never walks without it.

” Learning to become a great photographer is a serious challenge. I’ll always be learning something new, and always looking at new directions to explore, and new challenges to face. And that’s a good thing! This is a pursuit that I will never be bored with.” , he says. Akhil dreams about being a cinematographer one day!

Here’s more on to finding inspirations and what drives Akhil to pursue his passion:

Kay: How would you define passion?

Akhil: A powerful force that cannot be stopped!

Kay:  When did you start enjoying photography? What made you try it?

Akhil: About two years ago it all started from an iPod camera, I use to go out with brother for photo-walks,my role was to carry his camera bag and tripod, I watched him and learned more and more about photography. Clicking a photo …editing it,showing it to people seeing their expressions and getting their reviews are some of my best feelings ever. For this reason I like photography. Simply because I can use my creativity in which ever way I like through my work….and instead of feeling like I am being watched…I feel like the I am hidden behind the camera. That gives me a sense of confidence to show my creativity even more. Basically, I can be me!

Most people feel insecure about their talents. The advantage of being behind the camera is that you are truly hidden and can be your own self while you showcase your talent to people.

Kay: What do you think is special about your way of photography?

Akhil: I always try to capture photographs which are had to imitate by others,It’s the people behind the photos makes it special. I am truly blessed to have some amazing friends who support my talent and help me achieve more and more.

Kay: How do you come up with ideas for different photographs?

Akhil: I capture pictures the way I see it in my mind. I’m pretty conceptual, I think of an image for days before I execute the idea. Photographing also brings some sort of calmness to me, I’ve never had a hobby in which I could spent more than 2 hours for just one result.

Kay: The best advice you have ever received.

Akhil: Never compare yourself to others in a better or worse context.

These words of Akhil I totally agree with. The only person whom you should compete against is yourself. That is the most ideal way you can grow and that way you can also be satisfied with the result you achieve. Self satisfaction and contentment are the keys to happiness in this materialistic world and time.

Kay:  Any message to the ones who are reading this interview.

Akhil: God loves everyone the same and has given everyone their own unique talents. Just because you are not famous doesn’t mean that you’re not talented. You can still shine if you believe in yourself.

True Beauty can not be put in words,
Pictures do no justice to them either,
It must be felt! 🤗🤗🤗

Blue skies and green leaves -
Naturally beautiful just like you!
Where social media feeds us with the latest launches and must-haves everyday, it sometimes becomes hard to remember what we are blessed with.
A reminder to myself first 🙂
This Ramadan let us take time to reflect on how blessed we are, and how grateful we need to be for having being blessed with so much from clean water to safe homes - the needs which a lot of people are not priveleged to. 🏡🏡🚿🚿💧💧🇶🇦🇶🇦

Look, ladies, there's going to be a bunch of people/memes/articles/sheikhs/etc telling you that you can't do it. That you should take it easy. That they get it, your kids are young, your body is weak, your kitchen is small and your family is big, your life is HARD, you simply cannot achieve your worship goals so don't even try, its okay, there, there, pat, pat.
I'm here to tell you the exact opposite. I'm here to tell you: Yes You Can. I'm here to tell you that yes your life is is tough but you are tougher. I'm here to remind you that you push yourself all year. I see it. I see your willpower. And your strength. Your stubborn refusal to give in to all the difficult, trying circumstances of your life.
You are a champion.
And champions don't give up right before the actual race starts!
All year, we build ourselves emotionally and physically for Ramadan. THIS is the main event. This is where you get to test the mettle for yourself where all year you've been testing it for others.
Ramadan is for YOU. So get up. Push yourself. Set lofty targets and work your behind off trying to reach them. The pleasure is in the reaching. In the striving. NOT in the achieving. The achieving and assessment of achieving, we leave it to Him. That's not our business. We just keep ourselves busy trying.Don't NOT try because some one (a man probably) thinks you don't have it in you.
You do.Words as picked up from Drama Mama

When hotels really go out of their way to make moments memorable - a pretty little spread on our bed when we checked into the room at @movenpickjbrComing soon on my blog - a review of this property!This is the age of experience, and when it comes to hospitality, companies that go out of their way to pay attention to small details and make your stay as memorable, those are the tales you will always want to share.
In my case @movenpickjbr was a star except for the fact that they addressed me as Mr. Khansa all the time or am not sure if they thought Mr. M's name was Khansa 😂😂 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
