A Fijian photographer based in Australia is making it big on social media with a recent post that generated 120,000 views and recording 5000 likes on his Facebook page with his drone footage.

Most of Mozim Hussein’s photos on his Facebook page titled Lovely Third Eye Clicks record at least 1000 likes which generates more viewers because of the self advertising nature of the business.

“A picture tells a thousand words, and it is true in this line of our business,” Mr Hussein said.

“Our photo is our sales representative. If it sells well in front of people, I get more customers and the key to that is the race of having the best and latest equipment.”

He said the latest addition to his gear in photography was a drone that he also used to fly the Fijian flag in Nadi along with the recording after Fiji 7s team won the gold medal at Rio Olympics.

“The drone footage alone received five thousand likes with 120,000 views so far and it continues to be watched.”

Mr Hussein said for him, it was about passion, creativity, keeping up with the latest gear, having professional editing skills and knowing when and how to capture the moment.

“In the days of mobile phone camera, selfie sticks in other words, self-photography I am actually glad photography as a business is topping up,” he said. “It’s different from other businesses. I am sure for most of us it’s about our delivering our best skills and perfecting our skills.”

The 25-year-old loves to capture moments for people that they need to keep for a lifetime.

“I do model shoots, wedding photography and special occasions for family and friends.  I am slowly trying to expand my hobby,” he said.

“The drone footage alone received five thousand likes with 120,000 views so far and it continues to be watched.”

Mr Hussein said doing photography and posts on social media was like playing the lottery.

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter is an excellent seller for photographers, he said.

“The photos when uploaded get good likes, shares and people commend the work,” he said.

“So the next time they want photo sessions they call us up.

“The industry is huge online.

“We all have our own photos uploaded but what we photographers do is make our pictures outstand others in many ways.”
