Welcome to Mehdi Photos Photography website!
I am a photographer from Melbourne, Australia, which is now temporarily moved to Dubai, UAE. Soon after purchasing my first camera I realised that aviation photography was my one true passion and dedicated all my spare times to pushing my boundaries and learning everything required to capture incredible moments. I have taken all the skills and tricks of the trade I have learnt improved them and used them to my advantage. I also occasionally photograph nature (landscape), animals, portraits and newborns.
If you are interested in my pictures you can purchase them directly through my website. To inquire about prints, licensing images for commercial, editorial, personal, stock, or any other usage or if you want to hire me for a freelance assignment, please send me an email via contact button above with your request and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I was born in beautiful city of Shiraz and grew up in Tehran, the capital of Iran and moved to Australia when I was 28. I have finished my PhD in Mechanical and Aerospace engineering, fluid mechanics at Monash University. My interest in photography began over three years ago after the purchase of my first DSLR camera (Canon 400D). Since then, I am just learning how to shoot all on my own. My passion and love for aviation started when I was about 2 years old being son of an airline pilot. I started hanging around in cockpits and airports with my father during his flights to various cities nationally and later on internationally. My enthusiast in aviation is not finished only with photography. I have got a private pilot licence with over 140 hours of single-engine flying as well as a Masters Degree in aerospace engineering, aerodynamics.
My photos have been so far featured in many magazines and online databases including Australian Aviation, AERO International and Airliner World magazines, Airliners.net and Jetphotos.net websites and VIPA’s website and catalogues. I am also a member of "International Society Aviation Photography" and some of my photos can be found in JPG Magazine and flickr websites.
I have also recently become featured photographer and a member of Australian Traveller Magazine Virtual Internship Program.
I'm currently a screener crew member at Airliners.net, one of the world's largest aviation sites. A screener helps determine what photos get accepted or rejected from the website.
