To me, a successful photograph evokes a certain emotion and memory, with a complete awareness of time and place. Nothing feels better than capturing that wanderlust moment somewhere in the world, on a day drenched with good light.

I began photography as a hobbyist. Classically trained as an aerospace engineer, it was a perfect outlet for my creative imagination and escapist moods.

I pursued a two-year Diploma in Photography and Digital Retouching in Montreal, Canada. As I immersed myself, my deep love & interest for it grew and I knew that there was no looking back.

Photography was quite different from the engineering environment I inherited. It was truly limitless.

Yet I humbly saw the amazing presence of mathematics in art and learned about the golden ratio. That was my inspiration behind my brand name:

Dina El-Hakim Photogra-phi.

I always aim to make it my daily bread & butter. Slowly but surely, I toiled away at my daytime career and devoted time to shooting lifestyle, food and portraits.

I've been lucky to travel extensively and this global connectedness has allowed me to appreciate so much beauty and culture.

There's nothing I love more than photographing people, food, interiors, and places infused with stories. Visual imagery that evokes strong presence and offers a hint of nostalgia - that's my cup of tea!

Beautiful, high quality photographs are what I want to bring to your brand. Currently living in Melbourne, Australia, I am happy to travel to where you are in the world to make this work, together! So write to me, to bring your creative ideas to life.
