-When & were was the first time they meet each other?
Their mutual friend introduced them to each other at shootings, where Nataly was a model, and Murad was one of the photographers.
-How did the follow me project started?
It has all started in Barcelona in October 2011 during the first trip together. Nataly wanted to see everything, from the mountain of Tibidabo and cathedral of Sagrada de Familia to Tapas bars of Barcelona. Murad kept on taking photos, as it always was his favorite travel-part. At one time he wanted to take a photo of Nataly, but she got shy and turned, grabbing his arm, and dragged him forward...As you can understand, it didn’t stop him from taking a picture even then. So they made a photo accidentally but really liked it later. Posted it on Instagram, created a hashtag. And started to post more this kind of photos later under the same hashtag – so that’s how the project began.

Not far from the Jordanian capital Amman, passing the Dead Sea, you'll find a hidden in the mountains town of Ma'in. It is located in a valley and separated from the civilization with a massif. It is famous not only with unique location - there are thermal springs straight from the bowels of the earth, the water reaches 60-80 degrees Celsius! I recommend staying at my favorite hotel Six Senses. If you want to be alone with your own thoughts, then it is the best place ever ... A place of solitude and strength.

On the Cote d'Azur, between Nice and Cannes, there is a small, creative town, a home for many painters and sculptors, musicians and other talented people. And so it lasts for decades .. Visit the famous restaurant "Golden Dove" - ou need to reserve a table in advance in this restaurant, where the originals by Picasso hang. When he lived in this town, he paid for dinners with his works. The perfect place for art and inspiration!
In the heart of India, in an hour's flight from Delhi, there is a holy city of Shiva, the city where cremation takes place 24 hours a day, the city where every Hindu dream to die. It is believed that if you die a natural death in Varanasi, you stop the cycle of rebirth. This is the most unusual city on the whole planet, there is no time here, it is frozen between life and death ... "Varanasi is older than history, older than tradition, older even than a legend, and it looks twice older as all of them put together."
In the south of Brazil, on the border with Argentina, you'll find Iguazu waterfalls, and let the Argentines argue that the view from their part is better. This place is total admiration by the strength and majesty of nature when the eyes do not believe what they see. Go on rubber boats to tour under the waterfalls to see this power not only from above but from inside as well. Boat rides on the furious river, right under the waterfalls! At this moment you are like on the verge of hysteria and delight and can't even hear a single word of your neighbor. The trip is filmed, so an unforgettable experience will stay with you forever.

This is the city where a dream come true... a real paradise for a creative person, as everyone come here to fulfill their dream ... and someone succeeds. Even a wall with graffiti is a masterpiece here. We advise renting a helicopter to see the City of Angels from the height - unique shots are guaranteed!
