A different kind of Iraq photography story

Here’s a heartwarming piece from Al JaZeera about Iraq’s youngest pro shooter, 7-year-old Qamar Hashid Sultan.

His dad is a photojournalist, and Qamar is following in his footsteps, except that he loves to take pictures of “old things that are full of character” and shuns the violence.

He’s certified as a pro by the Iraq association of professional photographers and is under consideration from Guinness for the title of “world’s youngest pro photographer.”

Pay particular attention to his photo advice at about the :30 second mark….out of the mouths of babes. Robert Capa couldn’t have said it better!
