About Me


Born in August 1996. Loves bikes, cars and motorcycles. Petrolhead and a geek who takes music seriously.

Photographer / Petrolhead

Mostafa El-Refai


My name is Mostafa El-Refai and I’m from Cairo, Egypt. I started photographing about 6 years ago, but I didn’t take it seriously till recently. Even though I’m a petrolhead and a tech geek, photographing takes a great room in my heart. I believe it’s a hobby that I inherited from my father. I’m not a professional, but I’m a passionate enthusiast. For me a camera does not simply take photos, but it stops time to save a timeless moment forever. It’s the sophisticated device that scientists are trying to create without knowing that it already exists. Through my life, I keep taking photos documenting my journey. When I look back at my photos, I’m able to relive every moment I passed through.

I’m not specialized in certain type of photography, yet I believe that I’m best at landscape photography. I also enjoy shooting astrophotography and time-lapse videos. Speaking of videos, I’m really interested in shooting short movies, but photographing is my main thing.
