Without realizing photography became my passion. It all started when I saw some extraordinary photographer's work on Social Media that moved me. I was always inclined to 'photographs', be it drawing or clicking photography. Then started learning from my Master Mr Subhasis Banerjee. He inspires me the most.


1. Tell us about your background and journey. Give a short biography of yourself.

Came to Kolkata for higher studies and bought one point and shoot camera without informing parents. Started doing random photography of nature, people and roads. 

Suddenly through a known person, I got my first project on photography. That's when I asked one DSLR from my father. And that was my first stepping stone and journey initiation. Cut two, my camera got stolen within 20 days of purchase. 

That's when I got stubborn to work hard and buy a one for myself with my money. And without knowing it turned into wedding photography.
