Under his own brand Big B Fotografi, he has taken the lead to organize some major meetups and photo exhibitions in Doha over the last years.

The meetups, which serve as a platform to connect locals and expats in Qatar, spring from a desire to inspire, inform, educate and spread the news of good deeds performed by individuals and groups of people in everyday life, with hopes of such spirit to affect the wider community.

The master of ceremonies will be Ahmed Al Shahrani while Menezes will be launching the BigB Fotografi Awards during the event.
