THE HUNGRY OMAR: THE WONDERFUL JOURNEY OF A FOODIE

OMAR is a man of great ambition. He was born and raised in Damascus, the oldest inhabited capital in the world, and a food mecca for those with impeccable taste and an affinity to exquisite flavors. At 35 years old, he has gained a wide base of followers on multiple social media platforms including Instagram.

A professional food photographer and creative food vlogger, he is very passionate about his work. However, Omar’s journey to success was not a simple one.

He quit the rat-race in 2016 after hearing an inner voice screaming “no more accounting for me”. His life-long passion has always been to combine vision, taste and art. Omar is well known to use photography as an appetizer, and whenever he dined with friends, everyone knew not to touch their food before it was documented, published and liked on social media. His journey in food photography naturally climaxed in 2017 in the creation of the Instagram account @TheHungryOmar.

Burgers, cheese pulls, shawarmas and pizzas were among the audience’s favorite to watch and find out about the great places they were served. A year later he started to gain good exposure both on social media and real life, and this is when his success story skyrocketed to new dimensions.

By the time he started, Instagram was nearly saturated by famous food influencers and critiques. However, Omar adopted an innovative and creative approach dedicating his time, energy and resources for his passion. He was inspired by several internationally known Instagrammers such as Brahms aka @Daddyfoody, Greg & Rebecca aka @DevourPower.

Naturally, there were some obstacles to be overcome, and problems to be solved. Being able to stand out in a market full of influencers was a really big challenge for him. He mastered the art of balancing the need to give his clients proper exposure through his vision and style while keeping his audience entertained and involved. His strength was in his ability to predict, follow and influence emerging trends on social media while keeping his content relatively short and to the point.

His future plans are modern with a long term vision. He aspires to reach an international audience for @Thehungryomar by sampling the finest cuisines and restaurants around the world. He is on a path that will likely inspire future influencers, business owners, and food lovers, enabling them to reach their full potential. His key message to upcoming talents is “Don’t be afraid of being different and never give up!”. Omar is one of the most promising, inspirational and innovative foodies out there. Our eyes are locked on @Thehungryomar with high expectations of more to come.
