Saba Alhadi: Photographer
With over 15 years of experience in various forms of photography, Saba Alhadi has a keen interest in teaching people how to see the world as a photographer. Her images of Boston have been featured in the MetroWest Daily News, The Patriot Ledger, Where magazine (June 2002), AAA Horizons (July 2002), and Maine Sunday Telegram (July 21, 2002). Boston's Fox 25 News recently broadcast a feature on Saba's work.
Formerly a travel agent with American Express Travel, Saba Alhadi combined her years of knowledge of tourism, photography, and teaching to create a unique tour company in Boston. The idea for PhotoWalks evolved from Saba's passionate interest in photography. As she was walking through the Boston Common on a warm December day in 2001, she wondered how many people overlook Boston's elegant architecture and natural scenery. If people take the time to really observe scenes, there are so many ways to frame Boston's beautiful landmarks --creatively. Yet, many people take snapshots, not photographs because they are unaware of how to capture well-composed images. Now visitors may either capture Boston through Alhadi's own photographs or join her in PhotoWalks where she will guide them to take breathtaking and creative pictures of their own.
