About the photographer

Well, I came into professional photography more by chance than choice. I developed the flair for photography while pursuing mass communication and ended being a trained cinematographer in Mumbai.
I have worked for several serials, ads, documentaries, films and music videos. But I am most comfortable looking for a tiny insect in scorching heat or for a good specimen of mushroom in dense forest. My love for nature has made me travel extensively through the forests of India and Africa.
It is said that one cannot learn more with a glass full, my glass is still empty, I need people to help me fill it up with creative, meaningful and out of the ordinary work.
