In Aug/Sept, 2011 I went on a 4 weeks photography and conservation volunteer program at the Thanda Private Game Reserve in South Africa. We lived in the camp-site photographing and looking after the Big 5 animals. I saw this jumping spider when we were taking a break after lunch and this little guy creep up on my chair. I took out my 7D and 100mm f/2.8 Macro and photographed him. I thought he was going to run away as soon as I got close to him but he seemed intrigued by my act, he gave this sort of posed for me for about 5 minutes.
Photographer: Bashar Alaeddin (Amman, Jordan) Registered
Born in Kuwait City, lived between Jordan and Lebanon most of his life, Bashar has over 9yrs experience in digital photography since he picked it up as a hobby for a course during his university years. Starting from a 2mp Samsung, he is now the founder of a photography & video studio based in Amman, Jordan where his time is split between his commercial day job photographing food, interior, products and portraits; and his night-time job traveling around the middle-east region capturing landscapes, the culture and his favorite genre, long-exposures of the night-sky. He is an amateur astronomer and tried to combine that with his love of photographs showcasing the beauty of the Arabian landscapes under starry nights.
