Majid Bazaei was born in southern part of Iran. During his teenage years, he was filming everything with his camcorder and he was eager to try different angles. With the import of computers in Iran in the late 90’s decade, he learned about editing. That became an avocation for him to edit and adjust brightness and contrast of old photos.
He was then accepted in university to study petroleum engineering. After a while he moved to Shiraz with his family. After graduation, he continued studying to earn master’s degree. He had hitherto been writing poems by which he could express his emotions. Blogging and sharing in poetry websites was his leisure pursuit. Straight after graduation he knew that petroleum engineering was not what he was looking for and he seemed to have lost his way. Therefore, he went back to what was appealing for him the most. As a result, he enrolled in a professional training course of Photoshop. However, for doing his assignments, he needed high definition pictures, so he borrowed a Sony Compact camera from his sister and started taking photos. He immediately became full of passion and inspiration; he saw a new world where poetry was combined with photography. As soon as he found his way, he attended in a few photography courses to learn from masters of this art in the city. After passing all of the general classes related to photography in Shiraz, he attended several classes and workshops to learn about lighting. One year later, he opened his studio and searched to find his genre. Along with modeling photography, he pursued street photography; but it was impossible to concentrate on both of them. Eventually, through street photography he finds where he belongs, thus he focused on that with all in his power.Hours of wandering in the streets to see different walks of life, discovering spectacular subjects have become a pleasant habit for him. He soon made a significant progress which was obvious. He has won some accolades in a several provincial and national contest and his photos has been exhibited in different exhibition.
