About Yusuf Hashim ....

Yusuf Hashim

My name is Yusuf. My photography buddies call me DA (for DigitalArtist). My gypsetting mates call me Spider. That's also the name that friends from my Alma Mater, the Royal Military College, would know me by. This site is about photography and learning photography, and about shooting pictures in places that normal tourists dont usually go to. It's also about the unique Photo Safaris I've been organizing over the last five years for friends, photographers and budding gypsetters, to share with them, some of the amazing, lesser known and still unspoilt places that I've been privileged to have been to. If anybody wants to purchase prints of the photos here, please drop me a line at yusufhashim at digitalartist dot com dot my. Prints are available at any size, and on any medium including canvas, fine art paper, premium silk paper, matte textured paper, etc.

If you want to shoot pictures of some of these places, come and join one of my photosafaris. If you want a photosafari specially customized for your own interests you can write to me.. I have arranged several photosafaris for groups of photographers from abroad, and the latest was a photosafari to Java and Sumatra for 12 photographers from Taiwan, who wanted to shoot the Pacu Jawi Bull Races in Sumatra, the Sulphur Gatherers at Mt Ijen Volcano in Java, The Bromo Volcano, Traditional Markets, Landscapes, and Human Interest Subjects in Indonesia. I do these things not for profit, but as a hobby, and simply for the love of photography, and because I enjoy meeting photographers and sharing all things related to photography with other photographers, who usually become life long friends afterwards.

The scruffy photographer on this page is a splitting likeness of me. He is 13 grandchildren young, a Gentleman of Leisure, Unemployed, Unemployable and he looks like he's loving it.
