Renowned Photographer Mario Amean Dominates the New York Art Scene

Photos are media through which grandeur and beauty essentially freeze in time. In our highly digital age, photo and video content has become a powerful storytelling medium and brings innovative ideas to life. However, finding the winning angle for a great shot takes more than pointing the camera for a few shutter clicks. It requires a specialized skillset and knowledge of lighting, composition and final processing to perfect the right moment. One individual who perfectly expresses his in-depth knowledge of cinematography is gifted photographer Mario Amean.

Hailing from a family of photographers, Mario Amean was destined for a life behind the lens. He started working as a photographer at age ten, his passion inspired by his father. He used to own a photography studio in Egypt before the family relocated in search of greener pastures. Working alongside his father at ten, Mario learned the tricks of the trade, took master photography classes and is now skilled at simple and professional tools like photoshop to edit his work to perfection. 

However, while pursuing his photography passion, Mario never lost sight of what truly mattered – his studies, as he worked hard to become a renowned medical practitioner. “I love Art, and I would love to apply all the experience that I have to my future career, which is a doctor,” he shared. 

In addition to providing breathtaking professional shots that have earned him the nickname Dr. Mario as a result of his ability to make any shot look extraordinary with his astute editing skills, Mario also teaches photography classes, sharing his knowledge with people who want to break into the trade and become professionals themselves. 

With his creativity behind the lens, combined with his ability to capture the right moments that transcend words, Mario Amean has become well known in NYC, especially in Times Square. Additionally, he has established his name on social media with over 2.4 Million followers on Instagram

Describing the unique attribute that makes his work stand out among others in the NYC photography scenes, Mario shared, “I have a great experience with photography. I know how to provide my customers with great and fun experiences. Also, I ensure I always do my best to provide my clients with the best quality of work.” He added, “To be a photographer, you need experience and the skills necessary to take good photos. I have all the experience to provide my clients with highly professional photography work.”

On top of providing clients with highly professional photography work, the lens guru has collaborated with his siblings, Edwar and Mody, who are also photographers, to create a photography app called KLIK PHOTOGRAPHY. “We decided to create this app to let our clients have an easy, great, and fun experience when they book us for their photo shoot,” he explained. 

Mario Amean wants to continue establishing his brand as a photographer in the art industry in the coming years. “The good work and the feedback that I get from my clients make me very happy, and it motivates me to work harder always to improve my work and keep providing them with the best quality of work and experience possible,” he left off.

Fadi Amso: A Successful Entrepreneur and Photographer at 19

Fadi Amso is a young entrepreneur and creative with big dreams. He started his first business at the age of fifteen. Four years later, that business is still going strong. He has even ventured into a creative field. At 19 years old, he works hard to reach his goals.

Fadi Amso is a 19-year-old entrepreneur living in San Diego, California. At a young age, he knew he wanted to build a business. But being so young, he found it difficult to find people who would take him seriously. That did not stop him though. “I knew what I wanted, and I was willing to work for it,” he says. He started an e-commerce business called Sweet Grips. He sold grips for gaming consoles so gamers could play more smoothly. “In the beginning, I didn’t know what I was doing. It was hard to balance school work and running an online store, but I must have done something right. Sweet Grips brought in a ton of revenue, and it is still up and running today,” Fadi shares.

Being a full-time student while running a business was not easy. Fadi recalls days where he would come home from school, stressed and exhausted. “I was thinking of way too many things. I had a lot of goals, and I wanted to get started on them as soon as I could,” Fadi says.

When Fadi Amso was 16, he bought his first camera. “One day, I suddenly had this urge to get a camera. So I looked and found one online which I bought for $300,” he recalls. He bought it with no intentions of using it to make money. “I just wanted to have a camera and experiment with it. See what kind of pictures and footage I could take,” Fadi shares. 

And experiment he did. Fadi started taking photos and sharing them on Instagram. With each photograph he took, he was slowly building a portfolio of work that people loved. He also started working with video, creating short films. Once Fadi discovered and mastered his style, he turned his photography and videography habit into a small business. “I started creating high-quality work for brands and businesses all over San Diego,” he says. “Being a photographer and filmmaker did not feel like a job to me. I genuinely enjoyed it, and every time I picked up a camera, the hours would just fly by.”

As a teenager with two different business ventures, Fadi Amso developed a professional work ethic early on. He says, “I find it important always to provide high-quality work. What my client wants, I make sure I deliver to the best of my abilities.” His work has been well received, and Fadi shares that he has built genuine relationships with the clients he has worked with. “They have become more than just regular clients. We help each other grow, and they have put me in a place where I get to meet many people from various industries.”.

Hard work and a commitment to excellence define Fadi Amso as an entrepreneur, photographer, and filmmaker. “Giving up is not in my nature. It is not who I am. I have all these big dreams, and I want to accomplish them all. I hope to expand my businesses one day, hire a team, and work on bigger projects.” At 19, Fadi Amso is only at the beginning of his journey. More significant accomplishments are sure to come his way.
