Clicking anything is very easy, but clicking something meaningful changes its whole meaning. It’s the value and feelings that photography adds to a picture.
As a kid, inspired by art all around, drawing and painting was a god’s gift. After finishing junior college there was something which made me look forward to more and more creativeness. That’s when I was introduced to designing and photography. Photography is a never ending journey. Every new shoot brings in new challenges and growth. Enriching the art with professional certification and programs and winning accolades and exhibition, I moved a step closer to perfecting the art to photography. I have paved my way through technological change with swift adaptation for better skill, moving from the time-consuming rolls and darkroom to digital prints.
My 1st project as a still photographer was for a Bollywood movie ‘Jaane Kaha Se Aaye Hai’ and moved on to assist a few of the most renowned names in the industry like Ronny Sequeira, Nitin Patel etc. Just as the challenge was not enough I took to shooting and writing for a magazine for a few years. Moving through the various genres of photography like fashion, travel and wildlife, stills, dance, wedding, various technical’s in an attempt to perfect the art, I decided on an open challenge ‘freelancing’.
Through time and various projects, I found a niche for a concept called Candid Photography for events, mainly ‘Candid Wedding Photography’ and for travel and wildlife. I wanted to bring a new perspective to people’s perception of pictures in their very lives along with living the challenge of exploring toughness.
As art cannot be confined I do also exploit my skills on Fashion, Interiors, Portraits, etc as well. I have to admit my fetish for my equipment, I keep collecting different types of cameras whenever I come across something new or vintage.
I’d conclude for all those people who love photography, have an eye for what you shoot.
