After graduating university, and a brief stint as a copywriter, Adeela began working solely as a photographer represented by the photo agency 18% grey. She also assisted in establishing the first post graduate photography program in Pakistan that has been running successfully since 2010. She went on to set up her own studio a few years later, relocated to England and works primarily in the genres of fashion, lifestyle and portraiture. She has been published across various magazines, award winning books and taken part in multiple exhibitions.
When she’s not writing about herself in third person, Adeela likes to read, play indie video games and piano, and interrupt her cat’s personal space with her camera. She enjoys cooking Pakistani food and can make a delicious chicken karhai (relative to whether you can handle your spice). She currently lives by the sea. Well, about an 8 min walk away, according to google maps.
