FAQs



I usually get insane amount of questions favorite being what gear I used and how much I charged; YES don't judge me am lazy to answer them but my wife pushed me to answer all the important ones so here is a list of questions which you people asked me. 
If i missed out on any questions, I swear I did that purposely but okay go ahead ask me if you have any more questions I promise to answer few more of them.


Where do you live and work?
I am currently living in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. I have my own company over here by the name of Beyond The Canvas FZC. So yes I keep on bouncing between Sharjah, Dubai & Abudhabi.

Where are you originally from?
I am originally from Lahore, Pakistan but few years of my life I have spent in Riyadh, Saudia Arabia but am a true lahoriiiiiiii; from the love of food to my current status everything has to do with Lahore and no matter where I live I would constantly visit my love whenever I get a chance. At least I owe this to my city.

Since when are you doing photography & blogging?
To be honest blogging I have been doing since last 7-9 years that is the reason I have almost 800+ posts on my current blog. But the question which you should have asked is WHY I’m NOT CONSISTENT IN BLOGGING? That is the right question to ask because if you go through last 5 pages of my blog all you will find is “I am back” kind of posts and that is my problem with blogging. I guess I was always an emo writer so whenever anything bad happens I start writing about it but later on photography and film making took a grasp on me and I started expressing through it.

And the question of does it pay enough; I think it does I am running a family with it. You just need to be consisted about what you want to do in life and what not.

Is your wife okay of you not having a proper career?
From the world I belong to I thought photography and film making is a proper career; but for those who think it isn’t lemme just tell you in a very polite way. Yes my wife supports my decisions in fact she is a photographer herself so I guess its okay to live in a house which do not believe in having proper career.

Is Ubaid a wedding photographer, blogger, film maker or a commercial photographer?
Ubaid is just cute sa chota sa bacha who loves his bachi and bachi ki bachi too much. And the ubaid is all of it as long as he enjoys doing it. I love capturing stories and regarding commercial photography or videography I usually only take projects which have human element in it and that is the reason am never too good with product photography (until on unless it has a pyaari model in that product)
