1. Tell us about your background and journey.

I was born in Patna and did my schooling from Sainik school. I did my LLB in Delhi from IP university. I took up a part-time job during my second year of college which helped me in buying my first DSLR. I enjoy solo traveling and took my first solo trip when I was 17. Initially started traveling solo in India, explored places India and then 2 years after that started exploring other countries. I started my own venture in the year 2015


2. How and when did you realize your passion for photography?




I guess I always enjoyed taking photos. But it was actually during the college days that pushed me to consider pursuing it further. One of my friends asked me to take photos of his event and he really liked the photos I took. I enjoyed taking photos so I continued and within no time fell in love with photography.


3. What are some tips you would like to share with amateur photographers?

Practice makes a man perfect. So keep practicing and try to give your own personal touch to your work, which sets you apart from others. Also, I finished my law school with good grades, worked for a while then switched my profession. I won't recommend you to leave education in halfway.


4. What are the important skills one should have to be a successful photographer?

Passion and creativity are the most important. You got to love what you do and try experimenting every now and then. You need to know your camera very well and thus technical knowledge of the same is of importance.

5. What are the various opportunities available for aspiring photographers?

It is always better to focus on one thing and specialize in that, so first and foremost I would recommend aspiring photographers to choose a genre that they enjoy the most and work on that. One can be a Portrait Photographer, Fashion Photographer, Photo Journalist, Wildlife Photographer, Wedding Photographer, etc. There are all types of opportunities in the market. Your focus should be on improving and updating your skills over time to grow. Networking and marketing are the key factors to bring in new opportunities. How well you market your skill will ensure your growth and success.
