He loves taking pictures from his childhood. Photography has always been one of his favorite hobbies. One of the reasons he enjoys it is because it gives him a healthy way to deal with stress. His uncle brought him a camera when he was in school. From then on, he started taking pictures. When he took a picture with his camera, he could see the world from a different perspective. When he went to new places, he used to take pictures on his camera. That gave him a different level of joy than in his childhood.

He started his photography journey as a freelancer. He has worked for his country, United News of Bangladesh (UNB), and Dhaka Courier (News Magazine).
