Al-Maskery , born on the 14th of June 1981 in Oman.  His interest in photography began at the age of 12 when he began accompanying his geologist father on extraordinary trips to the mountains, valleys, and deserts of his native Oman.

“This is how I acquired a good eye for detail”, his artistic photography came into the picture.  For Al-Moutasim , the challenge in photography is in the ability to engage and perceive. “When I have an image in my head, I see it in its  minutest detail.  Executing is the easy part; it is a convincing of an image that demands the real talent.”
