The talented photographer and his beautiful pair who leads her boyfriend around the world by the hand first caught our attention almost a year ago.

During the past year, Murad Osmann, 28, and Nataly Zakharova, 27, have taken their signature photos in many plaes all over the world, wearing ever more elaborate outfits.

The photographer who documents their incredible journeys by taking pictures from his point of view as he is led to the four corners of the globe by his girlfriend is now set to release a book of their romantic pictures.

“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,” writes The Daily Mail.

“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. She is seen in a variety of outfits, from hoodies to dresses and bikinis to barely anything at all.”

The photographer said that Nataly, who is a Russian journalist, was the inspiration for the project.

“The first photo happened in Barcelona while we were on vacation,” he revealed to reporters. “I had just finished a shoot there. She was a bit annoyed that I was taking pictures all the time and so she grabbed me by the hand and tried to pull me forward,” Murad explained to reporters. “That didn’t stop me from taking pictures and that’s how I took a picture of her pulling me.”

“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.”

The talented photographer graduated as a civil engineer from Imperial College London, but later decided to change his life drastically and started a new career centred around his passion of photography and started his own production company.

“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,” he said.

However, the photographer claims that his girldriend’s outfits are definitely not Photoshopped.

“A lot of people are saying that Ioveruse HDR effect on my images, but to be honest these are not really HDR images. I am just boosting micro contrast in Photoshop and I am doing all that from just one photo,” he says.

Murad says that photos were initially taken by iPhone and corrected in camera+ app.

Two weeks ago, the photos were included in an Art Basel exhibition at the Versace Mansion in Miami in collaboration with American artist Alec Monopoly.

The two are now planning to bring out a book that would feature all the pictures Murad and Nataly have taken.

“We are already in contact with a publisher in US and will have our book published in the autumn,” says Murad.

Murad posts his Follow Me (#followmeto) photographs on his Instagram account, which has more than 580,000 fans. This number is now more than 23 times the amount he had when we first highlighted his incredible work in February 2013 (25,000).
