Hello there. I'm Maya. I'm French and Lebanese. I lived in San Francisco and now I'm in Boston.
I picked up my first camera after seeing my dad's pictures from the Lebanese Civil War. I decided I wanted to show beauty in chaos. I wanted to tell stories.
I learned the fundamentals of Photography & Photoshop at Stanford University. I graduated from Emerson College in Marketing Communications.
I founded bistara, a freelance marketplace to hire college students for creative gigs. I believe in empowering each other & that college students are the leaders of tomorrow's creative industry.
Feel free to contact email@example.com for any inquiries about photo commissions or prints. Or for visual storytelling + marketing inquiries. Or just to have a good conversation - we can do that too.
