For those who know me personally, would know that Photography is not actually my day job. I do have a day job by the way!. I deal with drilling rigs. Since I graduated all I knew was how to run a rig, I would eat, drink, talk and dream rigs and in the process it took me around the world, starting from Oman, and as far as Huston, USA and in between, France Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Iran, Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. So yes, I just didnt deal with Rigs which are on Lands only, I also worked on those were in the middle of the Sea, be it China or Indonesian Sea.
I started off as a painter, worker, toilet cleaner, carrier and steel pusher and I worked myself up all the way to a CEO of one of the best, biggest local Drilling company in Oman (Gulf Drilling MB Petroleum).
And despite all this, one thing is for sure, certain and doesn’t change, its all about the people, its them that makes a difference, and its always fascinate me when I visit the rigs to see my people, to listen to their sorrow and complain, or just to sit with them and have a friendly chat. Quit simply, its them that makes all this worth while.
Last but not least, it doesnt matter what you do, so long you have the passion, you could excell in anything and you can always make the time for it. The only showstopper is yourself
