About Behrooz Sangani

Behrooz Sangani

I was born on a sunny afternoon in February at 4:45PM Tehran Local Time. My parents called me Behrooz, and it’s been the name I’ve been known with ever since.

I always lack the words when it comes to talk about myself, maybe because I’m still searching to find myself in the vast world of media, art, science and everything I try on. The problem is that I haven’t found the perfect fit and I’m still wandering to find the answer.
My love, what I have done in my free time and what I have been spending all my money on these years is photography. But I'm not a photographer. I'm a computer guru working as administrator and IT manager. I hope you enjoy my photos here and you are welcome to visit me @BSurprised
