This Pakistani Instagrammer’s Soulful Videos Are Sure To Give You Goosebumps
Have you ever watched a nature documentary? A beautiful video of landscapes with a soulful music playing in the background gives you goosebumps. When you are far away from the beauty of nature, struggling with the hustle bustle of the city life, a video like that makes you feel connected to nature. When the leaves rustle in the video, you feel the wind on your face. That’s the magic of a well-made video. But National Geography has no monopoly on entrancing nature documentaries and videos. Ibrahim Zauq, a twenty-three year old Pakistani has been mesmerizing his Instagram followers and YouTube subscribers with his videography talents.
Although his photography is not any less notable than his videography, it’s the latter where Ibrahim’s heart finds true joy.
I contacted Ibrahim Zauq for a little interview for Twittistaan. This is what we talked about:
Q: When did you first become interested in photography and videography and what inspired you to pick up a camera for the first time?
A: Stretching it back to the start, some four years ago in my college days, a friend had a camera with which I would take random pictures. The same friend told me about Instagram and I started posting my pictures there. With time and a strong sense of imagination, I developed an interest in photography and after some time, I randomly tried making small music videos which I loved even more and that’s from where the journey of my passion started.
Q: Do you have more fun while taking photos or while shooting videos and why?
A: Life is motion. The motion of emotions. I love shooting and making videos more than taking a photo. I love music very much. With good music and good video shot, I try to show my world of imaginations to the world of reality.
Q: What achievements of yours mean the most to you?
A: My biggest achievement for me is my passion, my art itself. Besides winning some competitions in university, features in newspapers, magazines, by some organizations and government, the achievement which truly means to me is that my passion and my art teach me love, kindness, and life.
Q: What does your art mean to you?
A: My art to me is my people, nature, and life. My art means the multiverse to me.
Q: Any upcoming projects you would like to tell us about?
A: My university life does not allow me to fly free and do what I love the way I want to but yes some little projects like shooting a music video in near future for Sarkash The Band, on the song Dhal Ja which is based on the idea of rotten mindset like patriarchy and misogyny of our societies.
Thank you for talking to us, Ibrahim. We wish you best of luck for all your future projects. Here is to hoping that none of our artists will ever let their passions die and follow their hearts to create masterpieces that will leave the world in awe of them.
