Dr. G: How about this collection Tameer? What was your inspiration for this set of artistic images? Amazing job, by the way! I truly enjoyed diving into the intricacies of the photos.
Tameer: Thanks Dr. G. I really enjoyed shooting this collection. The Sky Light Collection was inspired by an art mentor of mines who taught me to always pay close attention to the small details. As a scholar and artist, I truly embrace trying new things and constantly learning from other photographers to expand my own artistic skills.

Tameer: Thanks for the opportunity.
Nothing like an Ethiopian dining experience to bring your family closer together. If you haven’t tried it, then I recommend that you pack up the clan and enjoy an African-inspired night of dining.
