My photography journey started around 10 years ago in my hometown of Pune, where I would go out and sit for hours to get a good photo of the Kingfishers around me. The long hours paid off, and I decided to become a professional photographer. I then continued to explore the technicalities of photography, a little on my own and a little from others. A few years down the line, I started teaching photography and taking specialized wildlife photography tours all around India. This helped me meet new people and extensively travel, which helped me grow as a photographer, as well as a person. For the past 5 years, I am a full-time professional photographer, specializing in architectural photography, product photography, food photography, and Industrial photography. I am always looking for opportunities to learn new genres of photography and enjoy studying and executing the intricacies.
