Interview by Melanie Meggs

Ahmet Hojamyradov, a young and talented photographer from Minsk, Belarus, has been capturing the breathtaking beauty of nature through his lens for over a year now. Starting off just as a hobby Ahmet experimented with various genres, landscape photography has now become his primary passion. His landscapes remind us of our true smallness in comparison to the overwhelming beauty of nature.

Recently, Ahmet has returned to Minsk after a journey through Georgia which has inspired him to share some of his most captivating photographs with us. Through these images, we can explore the mesmerizing landscapes of Georgia, and be reminded of the immense beauty that exists all around the world.

Join us as we explore the spectacular work of Ahmet Hojamyradov, a photographer who captures the beauty of nature through his artistic lens.

“A year ago, I had a tough time. My friends, Alexey and Valeria motivated me to try photography as a hobby. I have loved it since then.”


THE PICTORIAL LIST: Ahmet, where do you find your inspiration to photograph?

AHMET HOJAMYRADOV: Mostly, I find inspiration in traveling, people and architecture.

TPL: Has your style of photographing changed since you first started?

AH: Yes, it has! I started with architecture photography. Then it smoothly changed into landscape photography. Nowadays I do landscapes, some astrophotography and a pinch of portraits.

TPL: Do you have any favourite artists or photographers you would like to share with us, and the reason for their significance?

AH: Peter McKinnon, Alen Palander, Kai Böttcher, John Bozinov, Hannes Stier, Gueorgui Pinkhassov and many others. There are a lot of great artists whom I adore. But Peter is the one who influenced the most. I love his approach to shooting and editing his photos and videos

TPL: Where is your favourite place to photograph?

AH: I love shooting in the mountains and cities.

Mostly, I find inspiration in traveling, people and architecture.

TPL: Do you think equipment is important in achieving your vision in your photography? What would you say to someone just starting out? Any tips you have learnt from others?

AH: Yes, but not always! How you use your equipment is much more important.

If you are new to photography, I would recommend not to get stuck in one style. Experiment with various genres! Sooner or later you will level up your photo game in general. Passion and diligence, I guess . To become a good photographer, it is essential to know everything about your camera. You will spend less time to set up your camera, that you can focus on your shot.

TPL: Have you ever been involved in the artistic world before photography?

AH: No, I’ve haven't.

TPL: Are there any special projects you are currently working on that you would like to let everyone know about?

AH: In the nearest future, I am planning to do some portrait series. Please, stand by!

TPL: If I wasn't photographing what would I be doing?...

AH: Probably, I would create music.

We want to thank Ahmet for sharing his spectacular photographic works with our viewers and inspire them to take up a new appreciation for the world around us.
