My Story

I have been a photographer for the past 13 years. I specialize in Architecture and Interior Photography, Food & Beverages Photography, Home Decor & Home Appliance Photography, Infrastructure, and Industrial & Machinery Photography. To find the right genre, I tried my hands at almost all genres of photography, including Nature & Travel, Events, Pre-weddings, Weddings, Children, Newborns, and Fashion. As my true passion lies in taking photos of non-people subjects, I transitioned into a pre-planned and well-executed side of Studio photography. As for my technical skills, I am proficient with a wide array of professional cameras, lighting gear, and lenses. I have taken several courses in photo editing, and I am an Adobe Photoshop expert (Editing). Off lately, I re-started designing (after a decade’s gap) and also developed an interest in website designing and understanding digital marketing.

 

I hail from a family where we value education, and every family member holds at least a postgraduate, always wondering what subject I would choose to study this much. I struggled to find that one subject which would keep my interest and enthusiasm for the rest of my life. My inclination toward Fine Arts helped me fetch good marks. I plunged into the subject from senior secondary school. Initially, I took Fine Arts as a stress buster from other subjects and to sail through my board exams, but during this two years process, I found my career path. I was able to secure admissions to many Art colleges and chose to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Applied Arts from Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi. I learned new skills and fell in love with the creative process of different mediums. In 3rd year, I was introduced to photography as a subject, and fell in love with processing, developing and printing images. My first job as a graphic designer in a photography company threw me into the digital world of photography and photoshop; unlearning and re-learning the new photography techniques. Parallelly, I did certificate courses from Triveni Kala Sangam, New Delhi, and understood the digital camera as a magic machine. Having a design background, I understood better and was able to help fellow students. Company and requirements changed, and my regular unlearning, learning, and training fellows and juniors in photography became a routine. I was involved in studio construction for companies like Yebhi.com, Fabfurnish, Jabong and Havells India Ltd.

 

On a personal level, I am a people person with a knack for getting smiles and making clients happy. I closely work with my batchmates, often train juniors and take photography workshops. I am reliable and capable in a fast-paced environment, delivering my results on time. I am highly organized when it comes to photo editing, and I pride myself on being extremely attentive to detail, with an eye for presentation.
