I'm Abdullah Naser, born in 1983, California, raised in Kuwait. I moved to West Virginia, USA after I completed my high school in summer 2001 to pursue my academic career in dentistry. I was a scholarship student for 8 years sent by the Ministry of Higher Education in Kuwait. I've been supported by my parents to get my college education abroad. I graduated getting a doctor of dental surgery (DDS) degree in July 2009. The life in the US offered a wonderful atmosphere for being self-dependent, exposing to different cultures and perspectives, and improving the way we look at things. Photography is one of the things I've seen my spirit approaching to since just recently. Now I practice general dentistry at the public sector of Kuwait, I'd like to continue my education If I have the opportunity to be admitted into the specialty programs.

Photography has been my most favorite hobby. I am a semi-pro photographer with a serious trend for a professional level. I've been learning on my own through practice, which has given me experience and improved my skills. I didn't have the opportunity to learn at photography school or institutes. I had only one short photography session at one of the clubs in Kuwait in December 2006. I have a passion for portrait, advertising, and lifestyle.

    "نعم كلمة مبدع قليلة في حق شخص مثل الأخ أبراج
    وأنت حقا أبراج
    وشموخ في عالم الإبداع والفن والأخلاق
    شخص مرهف
    له طابعه الخاص والمميز في هذا الفن
    ولقطاته تشدك اجبارا
    وتجعلك تقف امامها تعجز عن التعبير وابدااء اعجابك فيها

    نسأل الله لك التوفيق والسداد
    وأأسف"

    "يعجر اللسان عن التعبير و وصف هذا الانسان الفنان
    اخوي "عبدالله الناصر" انسان ذو اخلاق عالية و محترم
    انا في مجال التصوير "مـــــــبدع" كلمة لا تكفي لوصفك .... انت فنان في اختيار زواياك و اضاءتك .... و بالاخص في مجال تصوير البورتريه و الفاشن و الدعايات .... واللي اكثر شي يشدني في فنك الراقي

    من خلال صورك، تخاطب الفنانين اللي بمستواك .... و اتمنى اني اوصل لربع اللي انت وصلتله

    كلمات تنقال بحقك " فنان، مبدع، اخ عزيز وغالي" و عسى الله يحفظك و يوفقك
    ولاتبخل علينا بجديدك :)

    واللي ما يعرفك خلف هذي الكواليس اللي مستخبيها، خسران كثير، كونك ااسان محترم و خلوق و في نفس الوقت خجول

    تحياتي لك
    اختك

    "يعجبني فيه حبه للتعلم وتطوير نفسه بنفسه..
    حقق نتائج رائعة بأقل الامكانيات والمعدات..
    له نظرة وفلسفة خاصة تجعله مميز..
    فنان له حس مرهف ويهتم بأدق التفاصيل..
    كريم ولا يبخل على احد بالمعلومات والنصائح..
    بل يبادر بشرح التقنية التي يخرج بها كل عمل قبل ان يسأله احد..
    عبدالله فنان مميز اعتبره موهبه كويتية تستحق كل التقدير والاحترام"

    "Abdullah is more than a friend to me, is he my younger brother. Believe me when I say this, he is one of the kindest guys whose soul is so gentle I doubt there is any more gentle, and would never hurt anyone's feeling, and always smiling.

    How do I know? well, I was there when he first held a DSLR, His talent was very obvious, and his interests to photography grew exponentially. I will not be surprised if he became one of the top photographers in kuwait.

    His pictures speaks for them selves and reflects the kind of creativity he posses.

    Abdullah, you are truly a creative photographer."
