"Working together is success"

People of Determination

My son is 8 years old and he has a rare, genetic condition called Angelman Syndrome. He was diagnosed in April 2017 and, since then, I have been part of a very special community of people.

In the UAE, they are called people of determination; in other countries, the terms "special needs" or "differently abled" may be used for example.

 

I have been taking photographs at public events which we attend, to help raise awareness and then I have shared them with the organisers and people who were also present.

 

I have also done two photo projects to help raise awareness of POD and AS. The first one involved taking photos of people and pets of determination. The second one is called Share Your Smile with Sam. If someone has a job or hobby which makes them smile, they are photographed with Sam and then the photos are shared on social media.
 

 

Animal Rescue

When I lived in Fujairah I rescued and rehomed lots of cats and kittens.  I used to take photographs of them, to assist with their adoption.

I would photograph rescued animals who lived at my friend's veterinary clinic in order to help them find new homes more easily.

In recent years, I have photographed various foster dogs to help them in their quest for a new family.
