I’ve been born and brought up in Kanpur. My love for photography began when I came to Mumbai to pursue a degree in Economics at St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai. The culture and free spiritedness of the environment encouraged me to try my hands at it. The next step was finding the right mentor and I found one in the very celebrated guru Mr. Girish Mistry. After following, learning and experimenting with fine art photography under his tutelage, I gathered courage to pursue professional photography at London College of Communication and finished a diploma course in Image production right after my graduation.
My wish manifested when, after returning, I bagged an assistanceship to popular celebrity photographer Mr. Dabboo Ratnani. The world changed and so did the dreams. Since then, photography opportunities have come along at the right time bringing with them thrill and excitement.
I believe the best photographs stem from simplicity. “Simplicity” in concepts, happy environment and a cup of coffee :). I love creating stories with my images. My observation has been that once one taps into the subject’s emotions, the eyes and the body speak that language for the camera bringing in a beautiful transformation. I strive to create just that with each and every person I capture in my frames.
Today I am based in Mumbai and my work takes me everywhere
