Meet Mario Amean: The Emerging NYC-Based Photographer Pursuing a Medical Career

We often associate passion with pursuing one path. Indeed, many established authorities even share stories of grit and dedication that demonstrates their process of transforming their one dream into reality. However, passion can also mean the desire to become fulfilled in life – no matter how many dreams one has. After all, in dreams, the sky is the limit, and Mario Amean is intimately familiar with that.

While countless individuals are focused on one dream, Mario Amean is bent on materializing two goals: to become a highly recognized photographer and a well-rounded doctor. It may seem like an unlikely duo, but it has always been this talented personality’s dream not only to provide great photos but also to save lives. By continuing to defy the odds, Mario is on his way to conquering two worlds and transforming his vision into action one step at a time.

Having been raised by a family of passion-driven photographers, it came as no surprise that Mario Amean developed a deep-seated love for the craft. Since he was ten years old, he has been working with his dad, who used to own several photography studios in Egypt. Together with his siblings, Mario explored the world of photography.

For more than 15 years, Mario assisted his dad, from whom he learned several tricks of the trade. As a matter of fact, he has developed quite extensive skills in using and handling Photoshop, producing photos that are top-notch. Mario eventually cemented a reputable stance in photography, enabling him to grow a massive following of 2.4 million followers on Instagram.

Pounding the pavement with his desire to solidify himself even further, this NYC-based professional photographer is teaching photography classes to help those who aspire to make a mark in the realm of films and reels. He also teamed up with his two younger brothers, Edwar and Mody, to create an app called Klik Photography. This app will serve as a platform where clients from all walks of life can book them as photographers and have an easy and fun experience.

“I would describe my work as professional. I have a great experience that allows me to provide my customers with quality photos,” explained Mario.  

However, his dream was not limited to mastering the art of photography. In the middle of taking photos, Mario Amean was also studying to become a doctor in order to save lives. As a matter of fact, while he was building his portfolio, this talented photographer was also spending his time in books, delving deep into the world of medicine. 

“I love art, but I also love medicine. I plan to apply my experience as a photographer in my career as a medical doctor one day,” shared Mario.

When we define passion, it is not just about pursuing one dream career. It could be anything under the sun, such as aiming to live a happy and successful life and the like. In Mario Amean’s case, his dream is to become a photographer and doctor. As he continues to aim high, Mario wishes to inspire people to dream big and never settle for less.
