Wowest photo journey: From the gondolas of Venice to the jungles to the Far East

Love can inspire us in the Wowest ways.

Photographer Murad Osmann has documented his travels as he is guided around the world by his girlfriend.  He has documented his travels by taking pictures from his point of view as he is led to the four corners of the globe by his stunning other half, Nataly Zakharova.

From the gondolas of Venice to the jungles to the Far East, each image shows his extended hand holding onto his partner’s in front of him.

With her back turned away from the camera, we never see her face as she guides the viewer to some of the globe’s most exotic and iconic landscapes. But she is seen in a variety of outfits from hoodies to dresses and bikinis to barely anything at all.

There are also more down-to-earth shots, such as visiting a bowling alley and riding an escalator, as he keeps a visual record of all his adventures with his loved one. Murad, an executive producer for the film company Hype Productions, started his journey in Barcelona in October 2011. He has since travelled to dozens of locations from Moscow to Hong Kong and Singapore to Bali.

 Murad said Nataly, a journalist from Moscow, was the inspiration behind his unusual collection. He told MailOnline: ‘The first photo happened in Barcelona while we were on vacation. ‘Nataly was a bit annoyed that I was always taking pictures of everything, so she grabbed my hand and tried to pull me forward. ‘That said it didn’t stop me from doing photos while she was pulling me. So that’s how it all started.’ Murad graduated as a civil engineer from Imperial College London, but later decided to pursue a career centred around his passion of photography and started his own production company.

He said: ‘It might seem that I have a lot free time, but actually we travel mostly for three to four days abroad due to me being always busy at work. “The photos were initially taken by iPhone and corrected in camera+ app. Now I am using any photo equipment that I will have at the time and I try to do less retouching as before.’ He has posted dozens of his photographs on his Instagram page, which has nearly 25,000 followers.
