Photographer Fouad Itani

My name is Fouad Itani and I was born in 1981 in Beirut, Lebanon. During my childhood, I used to accompany my father on his hunting trips and ever since then I’ve developed a strong fascination for nature and wildlife.

At the age of 25, I set foot for the first time into a Gaf tree reserve in the UAE. It was humid, noisy and extremely hot. However most exciting of all were the birds. I was immediately hooked.

Then and there, I made up my mind to buy my first DSLR camera and start exploring and documenting those fascinating creatures throughout the world. And so I did. “
