Mazyar Asadi - Freelance PhotojournalistEdit

About :

A passionate photographer and freelance photojournalism by profession and training.

My work includes a wide range of categories, from general news to artistic shots to feature photography. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in photojournalism from Tehran News University as well as Digital Photography Skill Trade Certificate from Technical & Vocational Training College of Tehran. I hold an accredited photojournalism from the European Press Federation.

Over many years of my professional services, I have been enjoying working with several news agencies, news portals, and newspapers; I have collected several awards and trophies of photography from prestigious contests around the world. Many other photographs of my work have been short-listed in several competitions, allowing me to develop a high-profile portfolio in my field. I also served as a photo referee in contests.

Professional photography is a lifelong journey, and I welcome any opportunity to learn, serve, and discuss possible choices that pave the path for further success in the professional world and enthuse me to make a meaningful contribution.
