Salim's career began in 1992 in Somalia during the now infamous Operation Restore Hope. A frontline cameraman, he worked for many months with all the major news agencies and networks broadcasting live out of Mogadishu. Throughout the mid-nineties he organized coverage of the genocide and subsequent conflict in Rwanda and Congo, working with his father, Mo, around the continent.
In December 2002, Salim provided vital logistical support as well as unique access and research into the Mombasa bombings for CBS and provided uplink services during Kenya's presidential elections.

Salim became Managing Director of Camerapix in 1996 after the death of his father. In memory of Mo, Salim founded The Mohamed Amin Foundation in 1998, now Africa's premier broadcast training school.
With 10 years experience in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, Salim is now branching out to Europe and America in joint ventures and co-productions with leading international broadcasters.
