I am Hashinur Reza Chanchal. My hobby is photography with multiple national and international awards and accreditations. I am a native of Bangladesh living in the bustling capital city of Dhaka. But was born and raised in a small town called Jessore in the southwestern part of Bangladesh till my late teen ages.
I completed my Secondary (SSC) and Higher Secondary (HSC) from my hometown school and college in Jessore. Then I moved to Dhaka to study Mechanical Engineering which I completed in four years from the best engineering university of the country, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). For my masters I studied MBA from a Private University in Dhaka. On photography I studied Basic and Diploma level in digital photography from Alliance Franchise de Dhaka.

As a professional , I’m having a corporate career in EPC( Engineering , Procurement, Construction) , Power Generation and Waste Treatment Sectors in private sector as a mechanical engineer.
My hobby is photographing on heritage including Archaeological and Anthropological subjects. In different remote places in my country I spent months at a time to documented those site. One of the goals was to reserve those national heritages and histories for our future generations. Whenever I was on these assignments I lived among the local people and in communities. This is to have an immersive experience on their ways of life. As stated before I also love to have these experiences for my ways of upbringing since my childhood. These always give me a better perspective on the contexts and the subjects, that I can express through my photography.
My works have been shown in many national and international photo exhibitions including including in Romania, Madagascar, Greece, Qatar, Portugal, sarbia etc. I have received awards in several national and international competitions. Some of those include winner in City Code International Travel Photography Competition 2019, Greece (ranked 3rd) and finalist in Siena International Photography Competition 2020. My Interviews and works are also published in different magazines and newspapers both in Bangladesh and abroad.
