Shafayet Hossain Apollo

I have been fully devoted to photography for the last 20 years. Now I am a freelance advertising and commercial photographer.I did job in a leading advertising agency in Bangladesh. On 30 September, 2011, I resigned from my post in an advertising firm to devote myself to freelance photography. Besides my profession I like to take photos of landscape, nature, fine art, people and portrait etc. I completed my education in B.Sc. in Leather technology under the University Of Dhaka, Bangladesh. I worked as a leather technologist for 10 months, and I realized that my future does not lie there, so I resigned and started working as a photographer. Instead of a leather technologist, I turned out to become a professional photographer.
