With an inclination towards cinema, I have always loved working with the actors. Meanwhile, I capture their photographs in action.
Film sets have some magic, and being someone who loves portrait photography. I can’t help but feel drawn to the mystery of a film crew collectively and tirelessly working towards making cinema for its audience.
I remember the day, when i picked up my camera and took a portrait of my father; I fell in love with it. That memory is so vividly painted in my head and what is left of it is the undying flame of faces. Each face has a story to tell, conveying an emotion, a smile, a frown, the eyebrows, the way people smile, that is what fascinates me about portrait photography.
My approach to Fashion is quite straightforward, its good naturalistic lighting. What helped me come to this conclusion is my tryst with street and documentary photography.
I have been shooting documentaries for twelve years now. Documenting people, gives you an insight into their lives, you get to learn so much about cultures, languages, sorrows, what joy means to people, their way of life. I started clicking photos of my village and never really stopped, it’s hard for me to pick a favorite in this category.. As a visual storyteller I have clicked so many photos through the countless memories I made on this journey that it overwhelms me. Street and Documentary Photographers till date are my biggest inspiration; it keeps my passion for photography ignited.
The wall is my everyday life. You see something captivating anywhere, you reach for your phone and before you know it, you are already editing it. I see frames just around every corner and it has helped hone my skill set. I love going for long walks with nothing but my phone, music in my ears, you never know what is waiting to be captured.
