Mohammad Murad, born in 1976 in Kuwait, by profession works in TV broadcasting but with a love of photography since childhood takes every opportunity he can to capture unique images. From his early years when his father used to take family photos & videos, he had an interest in the camera but never imagined he would become a photographer. Mohammad feels at peace when in nature taking pictures. Like many photographers, he started shooting everything (landscape, cityscape , water-drops; you name it). He believes that Nature & Wildlife chose him and not the other way around.
Relatively new to wildlife and birds photography comparing he joined the Voluntary Work Center in the Photography & Documentary Team. He soon realised that his passion was in photographing birds which is his favourite topic. In October 2014 Murad focused on Bird photography and joined the Kuwait Environment Protection Society – Birds Monitoring & Protecting Team where he learned a lot about behaviour which is essential for bird photography and allowing me to anticipate every move and moment. Murad would venture into the Kuwait desert before sunrise and return after sunset on each occasion of free time.
During his recent trip to Kenya in December 2019, Muhammed was alone wandering the Masai Mara with joy and passion for good photography.
After spending 15 months searching Kuwait from North to South Murad knew Kuwait was a small country but took the opportunity to photograph everything wild, from ants to the Arabian Red Fox. Soon he decided its time to see other wildlife and birds outside the borders of Kuwait and in February 2015 he travelled to Hungary to photograph the White-Tailed Eagle then on to Tanzania for his first safari, loved so much to the points it felt like Disneyland to him.
“Going out in the desert or in some of Kuwait’s natural reservers always relaxes me, I find myself in nature, I can stay out for 14 hours alone backing up food and water and my camera gear taking pictures in daylight and night, and ever feel bored, even for a second”
