It was a nice, sunny day and the very best cultural day for Bengali people because it was Pohela Boishakh, the 1st day of the 1420th Bangla Year. I was near TSC with my wife and cousins and suddenly I saw a painting on that wall with a slogan – “The shackles of oppression will be broken.” This reflects the current condition of the conscious people of Bangladesh. We want to live in peace all together in our lovely country and we can sacrifice our lives for that.

He was in band music from his early days until 2008 then suddenly left professional music for his better study life. From his childhood he loves to take pictures of nature and people around him, but honestly it was not his infatuation. Photography becomes his passion when he inspired a lot by his wife around a year ago. He believes self-learning is the best learning so that he started learning photography by the help of e-books, online articles, video tutorials and observing seniors’ works. His friends and cousins helped him a lot for a quick start with his 1st DSLR camera. After 5 months he completed his 1st photographic course in Photojournalism. Recently he has done an advance course in basic photography and now started a one diploma course in professional photography. He feels affection for taking photos of different aspects of human life and nature. Nature, wild life, architectural, street photography and candid portraiture are his specialty. Shanji also loves to do wedding photography barely from an artistic vision just not only for earning money. Creating own signature in photos is Nazmul Shanji’s main awareness where he always try to put his own styles, knowledge and views. “I love to travel a lot and try to capture the moments of life. My dream is to be a photo creator by which I can show my observation to others, the scrutiny of an unseen diary” said by him.
