Mido Photography - BIO

Name                          : Mohamad Seifeddine known as Mido
Date of Birth              : 1-March-1975
Place of Birth             : Mazboud – Chouf .

Photography for Mido started as a hobby at the early age of ten. Over the years it turned to be a lifetime passion, he also taught Photography courses for several years in the university.
Mido view the art of photography as a subtractive process, a distilling of reality into a personal vision. As such he often use the tools of modern photography – filters and digital enhancements – to try to capture in an image the emotions he felt at the moment he tripped the camera's shutter....

Concept shooting is a way of approaching photography for Mido, it takes his work to a new level. It takes a little more thought than just going "snap happy" but Mido's photos convey a message with those viewing his shots....
With degrees in Architecture, Interior Decoration and Business Administration combined with careers as a Graphic Design Instructor, and professional photographer, Mido's background may seem quite complex. On the other hand, simplicity and emotion are characteristics of a Mido’s photograph.

Mido's work was published in many U.S magazines, websites and exhibitions; he always repeats a quote said by Ansel Adams: "A photograph is usually looked at - seldom looked into" and always says that he tries to let people look into his work not at it…
