My name is Ashraful Arefin. I was born in May 3rd of 1987 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I grew up in Dhaka and currently based in the same city. I was always very interested in drawing and painting, and wanted to be an artist from the childhood. I started studying Fine Arts and have chosen Graphic Design as my major in the university. I was photographically born in 2013 when I started doing a 365 project, and I completely fell in love with photography and found my true passion for it. After graduating in 2014 I've decided to take photography as a career and right now I'm giving my full time for it. Right now I'm working with some reputed international agencies and also on my personal projects.
I love shooting mostly still life and conceptual images. I've been very much inspired by the simple little beautiful things in our lives and I try to portray my appreciations for the little things through my works. I always try to find beauty in the simplest objects, for me beauty is everywhere if we look a little bit closer. In short, I work to capture beauty and emotion within my photographic frame by using colours and simple techniques.
