    Tariq Zaidi

Tariq Zaidi has become one of those success stories one occasionally reads about.

He gave up a senior corporate position, 2 year’s ago, to follow his dream of becoming one of the world’s most respected fine art travel portrait photographers with the aim of capturing the dignity, purity and soul of people, within their environment.

Since launching his website, in July 2011, he is close to achieving this goal. Over 30 of his images have already won major international photography awards. He has had two exhibitions, published two books and has completed assignments in Sierra Leone, Cuba, Russia and Japan. He is also a Getty Image contributor and a photography & Photoshop educator, teaching at the prestigious University of the Arts, London and other photographic institutions in the UK.

To search for truly unique images, Tariq continues to travel around the world. He is currently working on his 3rd publication and collecting material for his first international exhibition.
