My name is Sadik Elgallal and I'm a 21 year old photographer from Benghazi, Libya living in Ottawa, Canada. I've always loved taking photos ever since I was a child, whether it was on a disposable camera, a point and shoot or even my phone. During the summer of 2016, I decided to take my passion for photography more seriously and purchased my first ever DSLR camera and I never looked back.
Within two months of owning my DSLR, I decided I wanted a platform where I can show people my work. I went and created my very own photography Instagram account in August 2016. After many hours of trying to search for a good username on the internet, I failed miserably. However, I did come across the username "Castbound" and it caught my attention but it just wasn't catchy enough for me. Using that username as inspiration, I came up with "Boundcast". Three years down the line, more people in Ottawa know me by my username, Boundcast, than by my first name.
However, I am not currently pursuing photography full time. At the moment, my studies take priority. I'm a fourth year student at The University of Ottawa studying Marketing and hopefully by the time I'm done my degree I'll be able to combine both my photography and marketing knowledge together to improve how I market myself and my brand.
