Capturing the Land of Giants
My name is Rehan Akhtar and I am a volunteer photographer, who is on a quest to capture the amazing landscapes of Pakistan’s spell binding northern areas since 2008.
Being a photographer in Pakistan comes with it’s own hardships. The terrain is harsh and the road network unreliable. Then there are travelling and equipment costs which makes it an expensive hobby. But the outcome makes it worth the effort.
I believe that a picture is formed in your head, before you click your camera. Capturing these each landscape, it felt like God took special attention creating every single one of them, and reminds me why these areas are called heaven on Earth?
I am sharing some of my work below. Please also visit my facebook page for more details.
Shangri-La is probably the most famous spot in Skardu region providing unmatched scenery. The lake is called Shanri-La lake or lower Kachura Lake.
