Meet Khyber the founder of CapturedPro Photography and the lead photographer looking after Team CapturedPro and everything to do with CapturedPro Photography.
Khyber migrated to Australia in the year 2012 from a fairly different part of the world (if compared with Australia) Afghanistan.
Here is what Khyber says about his journey of photography:
"I remember it was the end of school gathering with my class fellows from secondary school. We drove from Jalalabad city to Kabul to party. It was the era Americans had recently invaded Afghanistan and life seemed very promising with no fear of being blown up by then Taliban and now Taliban/ISIS and so many more titles they have gained.
To capture the journey and last moments of school life, I borrowed a basic digital camera from a friend of mine. As we were driving along the Qharqha Lake towards Paghaman district, I witnessed a sensational beam of light hitting the lake. The beautiful sunset made it even marvelous. I rotated the camera dial to "sunset" and snapped a photograph. I loved it, I really loved it but was not sure if my friends would like it or not. As each of them looked at the photo, the one word common between their expression was "Wow". It was that one photograph that made me fall in love with photography and since then (2004), I have been behind the camera at different levels. In 2014, I successfully completed my Diploma of Professional Photography from Australia's Photography Institute with a remarkable score of 106 out of 110 but I am still learning...
Band-e-Qharqha lake, Kabul Afghanistan. The photo that made me fall in love with Photography.
When I arrived in Australia, it truly was a life-changing journey. I was amazed by how wonderful Australia is. Yet, I was divested to look back at my home country and how people continued to live there.
It was clear to me that I will call Australia "home" from the day one. As I settled down, I continued my professional career in the Higher Education Sector (Deakin University) while also having the pleasure of being behind the camera without the usual fear I had back in Afghanistan.
Today, I take great pride to be a good citizen of Australia and have the pleasure of running CapturedPro Photography. My goal continues to remain committed to
provide exceptional photography services to both my clients, staff and freelancers.
Here are some of Khyber's photographs that he personally loves.
