Hi, my name is Aarief. I'm a professional photographer who specializes in visually documenting the indigenous peoples and cultures of the Himalayan region. I also run what I genuinely believe are among the very best photography tours in Asia, leading small groups of adventurous travelers and photography enthusiasts of all levels on unforgettable adventure vacations in Bhutan, northern India, and beyond.
Originally from Kashmir in India, a career in the IT industry brought me to Singapore, where I am still based. However, after sixteen years on the job I was ready for a change. Although I'd always kept in regular contact with my homeland while abroad, I somehow felt the need to get to know it better again - to get to know myself again. For me, then, photography was first and foremost a method of discovery.
Now photography is also my profession and I regularly contribute to both online and print publications and undertake commissions for major corporate and commercial clients across the Asia-Pacific region. I also teach photography to both adults and children alike.
Before running photography workshops and Asia adventure vacations I was already a regular traveler in my own lands. Indeed it was among the warm and sincere indigenous peoples of Kashmir and Ladakh, and then further afield in the high mountains and verdant valleys of Bhutan, that I first began to really develop my skills as a photographer.
