Under the banner of wedding element, jahid hossain pinkel had the privilege of being commissioned for wedding photography in Australia, America, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and India.
But as Pinkel sees it, his transition into the photography industry was not an easy one.
“Initially I was not interested in wedding photography; I used to work as a photojournalist and that’s when I thought of learning more about photography in general. But cameras and gears can be expensive. I got into wedding photography just to get some capital to support my passion. Whereas now I’m grateful that I picked up wedding photography because without it I don’t think I would have become a photographer,” jahid hossain.
A graduate of Pathshala South Asian Media Institute of Photography, he was also behind the first ever wedding exhibition that took place in Bangladesh.
“I have taken this as a challenge to develop the photography industry of Bangladesh as during my initial days I was not very encouraged. In a way I was determined to take this profession to the next level” jahid hossain pinkel .
