About Me

Ciao, I'm Asif. I moved to Torino, Italy to follow my passion and study Photography. I'm half-way through the program and found that I love creating compelling visual stories around contemporary dance and traditional rural life.

I love hosting artists, fellow photographers and people who like to be photographed (aka willing models!) as I think the most memorable connections are often built while collaborating on cool creative projects that produce art.

Outside of school one of my others passions is music and in Torino I'm the trumpet player in an Italian "pop-soul" band called Denerada (

I've hosted a lot of awesome people and surfed a few times and I'm really looking forward to continuing to do so.
