Share Your Knowledge, Your Experience and Work - Inderjit Singh


 A love for nature, an eye for beauty and an understanding of light are the necessary ingredients. But all of the above is of no use unless you are obsessed with photography and the camera has eventually become an extension of your mind and soul.

1. Tell us about your background and journey.

I am a Doctor practising in Punjab. From childhood, I was deeply attracted towards drawing and painting and spent considerable time and effort on them even as a medical student. 

I started with bird photography and gradually became obsessed with wildlife, particularly tigers. I continue to find time for wildlife photography despite my hectic professional life.

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

Like I said, it started with birds and eventually became an all-consuming passion. I guess it has been more than ten years since I have been pursuing this seriously. 

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

A love for nature, an eye for beauty and an understanding of light are the necessary ingredients. But all of the above is of no use unless you are obsessed with photography and the camera has eventually become an extension of your mind and soul.

 
4. What are various opportunities available for aspiring photographers?

The internet and social media provide us with a  learning tool, a media for interaction with peers as well as a showcase for our work. This is indeed the best time for budding photographers. 

 
5. What kind of books do you prefer to read?

I am fond of books and I read motivational books like You can Win, How to win friends and Influence people, Monk who sold his Ferrari etc. 

 
6. What are some tips you would like to share with aspiring photographers?

Share and share-alike. Share your knowledge, your experience and work. There is no point in being possessive and secretive. Keep professional jealousy out of your heart and enjoy being a part of this growing fraternity of photographers.
