Pho­tog­ra­pher Ghaith Sul­tan al Bat­tashi has won a diploma award in Photo Click Cir­cuit 2020 held in Al­ba­nia and Mon­tene­gro.

Hail­ing from the wilayat of Quriyat, Bat­tashi’s pho­to­graph ti­tled ‘Ira­nian stu­dent’ won the Sa­lon Diploma award in the on­line com­pe­ti­tion. Speak­ing to Mus­cat Daily, Bat­tashi said over 400 pho­tog­ra­phers from 38 coun­tries par­tic­i­pated in the com­pe­ti­tion. “I par­tic­i­pated with 15 pic­tures,” he in­formed.

Bat­tashi started pho­tog­ra­phy in 2017 and joined the Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety of Oman in 2019. He is keen to pro­mote do­mes­tic tourism and show­case Oman’s beauty and di­ver­sity to the world through his pho­to­graphs. “I love tak­ing photos of na­ture, es­pe­cially stars.”

He takes the dif­fi­cul­ties he faces while shoot­ing in his stride. “Reach­ing some lo­ca­tions while do­ing wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy need trekking for long over dif­fi­cult ter­rain or climb­ing moun­tains.”

About fu­ture plans, Bat­tashi said he will con­tinue to cap­ture Oman’s nat­u­ral beauty in pho­to­graphs. “This is my con­tri­bu­tion to im­prove do­mes­tic tourism in my beloved coun­try.”
