Thwarted by tales of terrorism and Taliban rule, Pakistan’s tourism industry has been stymied for the past two decades. But ancient valleys, relaxed visa restrictions and a high-profile royal visit in the offing mean this remarkable country is finally getting the focus it deserves.
Because this is a place of exquisite landscapes, where green spaces are overlooked by towering mountains. In fact, Pakistan has more peaks taller than 22,965ft than China and Nepal combined, making it an almost magnetic spot for adventure travellers and intrepid hikers. Visitors can follow in Michael Palin’s steps while traversing the 12,250ft Shandur Pass, home to the world’s highest polo field, or meet with the Kalash people of the Hindu Kush, famed for their cowrie-shell headdresses and brighter-than-bright embroidery. In Lahore, the sight of 100,000 worshippers crammed into the sandstone 17th-century Badshahi Mosque will leave you breathless, while Mughal-era architectural masterpieces stand resplendent on bustling street corners.
‘Having operated tours in Pakistan since the late 1990s, I’ve had a ringside seat to its troubled tourism industry, but finally it seems to be improving,’ says Jonny Bealby, founder and CEO of adventure-tour operator Wild Frontiers. ‘A focus on security measures, which saw the British FCO lift its advice against travel to large parts of the north, and the election of Imran Khan, who has vowed to increase international tourist numbers, has already had an impact,’ he says.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also due to visit this Autumn to witness the magic of the mountains first-hand, while many of the frustrating permits previously required to travel here have been dropped. Hardy visitors will find that little has changed since Mughal times – with the peaks’ gemstone mines, fairy meadows and winding trails worn into the ground by heavy-laden yaks – while the Karokoram, stretching upwards from the north-west frontier and carved into the ancient bedrock, is one of the world’s most astonishing highways.”

I dont photograph monuments or architecture, i pick up the light on them and pour into my mould of composition. Every building i have visited has my photographic take on it. It maybe ordinary or a masterpiece, but it will surely be different.
Here is one of the great Colosseum in Rome, Italy.

On World Tourism Day, i was lucky to be in Rome and visited Vatican Museums. Above, behind and around me were hand painted and sculpted walls.
Witnessing Michelangelo’s paintings at Sistine Chapel, specially The Creation of Adam, was surely a sight to remember.
Here are some glimpses for you from my visit. (All the photos/videos are made using a mobile phone in this blog and are unedited)

These days everyone loves to be photographed but a lot of people travel solo, and it becomes difficult for them to take their own photos. As a professional photographer, here are a few tips for a perfect selfie!
1. Always face the light
2. Keep the camera slightly above the eye level to look sharp and sleek
3. In landscape versions always capture the negative space to the side you are looking at
4. Look at the camera and not at the screen
5. Always do the basic retouch on photos before posting like brightness, contrast and shadows

When i first started photography as a hobby in 2006 during my architecture school, my first travel destination was Kalash Valley KPK, Pakistan. I had an analog camera on which i was practicing variants of shutter speed and aperture values. This photograph was one of my first shots and i named it ‘Kalash Girl‘ (inspired by Steve McCurry’s Afghan Girl).
This was exposed on a film and then scanned to make a digital copy. The quality of this photograph might not be great but it’s close to my heart as it did kickstart an endless journey of passion and joy for me. From that day, i haven’t stopped or looked back. Still trying to learn and improve my skill of capturing ‘photo’, which we also know as ‘light’!
