About Me


Zuhair A. Al-Traifi, based in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. Begun photography in early 2010 and after a year I realized my passion lies on taking portrait from the streets. In the late of 2013 I begun a project about the Streets of Saudi Arabia in goal to photograph the lives on the streets and document the places & the cities in the country and I’m still working on it. In beginning of 2015 I started learning more in Documentary photography & film photography

  1. hi zuhair…came across your blog via DP:)and am thrilled to follow your flog…as i love street photography and street photography from your country is rare…so excited to get a glimpse of your world…thanx for sharing…

    1. I’m honored and happy to hear that. Stay tune for more as I post every week from a post or 2 and you will be surprised even more about our country : ). Please share the blog with your friends thanks

  2. Hello Zuhair…I first ran across your photos on the Digital Photography School site and later read your article on street photography. I am very impressed by your street photography and the way you have captured the character of people! Beautiful and compelling photos! I am an expat living in the same area of KSA as you and have been very hesitant to photograph in public around here. Your photos have given me inspiration to give it a try. If you have any pointers for an expat photographer to make sure I don’t run into trouble photographing in KSA, I would love for you to pass them my way. Keep up the great work! Mike

    1. Hello Mike thank you for your comment and I’m really glad that you like my blog here. I can say that street photography in Saudi Arabia is hard and tough, really tough at some point, that’s why a lot don’t do it and also a few of us like the challenge like me and just do it ! I don’t know exactly what might I say to you about it, just smile and keep photograph 🙂
