When he was a child, his Syrian father would take pictures with his film camera as a hobby. It caught Amer Mohamad's interest at a very young age back then. As he grew older, he started taking photographs of his friends and used them to practice his new skills. One day, he told them he wanted to become a fashion photographer, didn't listen to their opinions and decided to move to Moscow, Russia to pursue his dream. After a first failure with an agency, he started contacting models on his own. That's really how he landed his first American magazine cover in May 2014.
