1- Tell us a little about you
I am a Conceptual Photographer. I started photography 6 years back. Initially It was a hobby, which turned into passion now it’s pretty much my profession. I’m more of a conceptualizer & love to take up all sorts of challenging work. To keep my work alive and fresh, I travel as that indeed is a great source of inspiration for my thoughts and the concepts I come up with.
2- What or who got you started in photography?
My uncle got a camera which he never used & I was always very curious to use that camera so I asked my uncle if I could use it he allowed me to do so, I instantly fell in love with the camera & now all i wanted to do was to buy my own camera. I asked my dad if he could buy me one but like they say sometimes you’ve got to earn what you want and only then you realise its worth, that’s exactly what happened,the moment my father said no it inspired me even more which made me all the more desperate to own a DSLR and believe it or not i started permanent tattooing with a hand made machine made some money and got my self a professional machine from it and i made good amount of money to pick up a brand new camera for my self.
