Let me introduce you to – SELIM AYDIN –
the person behind Aydinphotography.
Born and raised in a small town in Austria (surrounded by beautiful mountains), I decided early on that I didn’t want to spend my entire life there. Since then I’ve lived in the US (Tucson, AZ), India (Hyderabad, AP) and currently reside in Switzerland.
I’m a medical doctor by training but after practicing medicine for a while I took a questionable (according to my parents) / wise (according to me) decision to work in a corporate environment.
But what does that have to do with photography?
Well, I’ve always been very passionate about photography.
I still remember getting my first point-and-shoot film camera when I was a young boy, which marked the beginning of a life-long journey.
I WAS HOOKED TO CREATING ART FROM DAY 1 !
And to this very day, I continue on my photographic journey to perfection and with every shutter-release, I get closer to it!
If you consider my life as shortly described above (the breathtaking mountains & historic old-towns of Austria and Switzerland, the vast and beautiful Sonora desert in Tucson, the colorful culture and diversity of India) – I was always very lucky to end up in scenic places that served as the perfect soil for my photographic ambitions.
Over the years my gear has changed from film to polaroid to digital to APS-C DSLR to fullframe mirrorless – my latest gear consists of a Sony A7II with various adapters so I can use my beloved Nikkor lenses.
I’ve also tried many different styles – from portrait photography to wedding assignments to HDR landscape to macro – all of which I still use in one way or the other.
What has never changed though, was my passion and enthusiasm for photography.
Photography is like life in a sense that you can always learn more and will never get bored unless you stop learning!
Currently, I’m married and have two wonderful kids – which keep me very busy but also give me lots of opportunities to shoot beautiful portrait and action pictures.
