Photography happened to me almost 10 years ago. The passion grew so fast and so much that I finally took it up full time and started shooting everything and anything, and eventually got into Wedding photography. I love to shoot people. Human emotions intrigue me and photography gives me a chance to document them perfectly. Wedding photography gives me the opportunity to capture people in various states of emotions. I see them happy, rejoicing, sentimental, sad and going through so much more during the various ceremonies and rituals at a wedding.
I am an ex-Indian Army Major. After I completed my Bachelor of Science degree I joined the Indian Military Academy and got commissioned in the Punjab Regiment (The oldest Infantry Regiment) after completing 18 months of training. I served at various locations for 12 years. I am married. My beautiful better-half inspires and encourages me to shoot and she sometimes assists me during the photoshoots as well.
I love to meet people and make friends! I get so much to learn and experience, and I feel this helps me ‘grow’ as an individual. A photographer is not merely a person who has the know-how of the technicalities of a camera or lighting or composition but he/she is someone who understands human emotions first. I strongly believe that the photograph is partially a reflection of the person being photographed but mostly, a reflection of the chap behind the camera. It reflects the nature, the experiences, the interpersonal skills and so much more about the photographer. Therefore, I am what my photographs are!
I am a musician as well. I play the guitar, drums and a bit of keyboard, I sing, I compose and record music. Music has been a very integral part of my life right from my childhood. Music and photography are foods for my soul…just can’t live without them!
I am more of an outdoor person. Love to play games, swim, trek, and photograph everything.
I strongly believe that everything and everyone around us is picturesque and beautiful… it's just the way we see.
