Ayub was born in Mozambique in the 60s, though his parents moved the family to India in the mid 70s to flee the war-torn country. Ayub completed his early education in India before travelling to Europe, living in Portugal for eight years and then moving to London, where he lives now for over 25 years.

Ayub’s travels have made him fluent in seven languages, reflecting his immersion in and ties to the many cultures which have become a part of him and reflect through his photography.

It was in India that he discovered photography as an art and he became immediately hooked on the ability to freeze a moment, capture an expression, record history for posterity and explore macro photography with its unique ability to bring to vision what often cannot be seen with the naked eye.

With a background in Science and IT, Ayub explores the intricacies of technical photography but his passion remains in the Natural world. His images reflect the diversity of fields he photographs, from travels in Africa, to the beauty in Nature and the timeless beauty of a human expression -- bringing to view what often lies beneath the simple look of the eyes or a gesture.

Ayub has combined his other passion, sports, with his love for photography. He is a Black Belt in Karate and a long distance runner, with the half-marathon as his preferred distance. A teacher as well as an eager student, Ayub loves to pass on his knowledge by helping others explore the beauty of the art of photography. He runs workshops in the UK as well as abroad and is also involved with local schools and organisations linked with wildlife and preservation of Nature, helping educate about the importance of insects and Nature in our ecosystem.

The photographs of The Tribute to Professor Gordon Hamilton Fairley (40 years on) are absolutely stunning, capturing the mood of celebration, and triumph over tragedy so well.
You make everyone look photogenic, but captured as very natural and un-posed.
Thank you got adding to the Archive to remember a great man against a background of the beautiful Great Hall of Bart's

I can't thank you enough - I feel so fortunate that our paths have crossed... first in my work for UK Sepsis Trust and then again on a personal, family project. What I love about your brilliant photography is how you manage to get underneath the surface - capturing the core essence - whether it be a person, animal or landscape. Your energy and enthusiasm is infectious and your generosity unquestionable. Thank you so much and I greatly look forward to working together in the very near future. Sarah

Ayub is an inspiring photographer - inspiring because he captures insects as they are, not as we would want them to be. His shots are technically brilliant, yes, but for me the real pleasure is that they are about the subject. Insects are presented as living, interesting and glorious animals rather than as "objects" to demonstrate skill with a macro lens. It's a rare skill.
you're such an amazing phtographer.
Can never get tired of admiring your work.
It reveals a very sensitive side of you.
Each things you photograph is unique and breathtaking, either is it is a child, a water drop, a flower or a landscape.
Congratulations for your amazing work.
