“Photography has always been ‘in our family’, but my real journey in the field began in 2008, when I joined a Certificate Course in Photography at Fergusson College in Pune. Here I learned the secrets of what it takes to compose and capture a good photograph, and realized that photography can have an artistic as well as a commercial aspect.
I started out with a focus on wildlife photography, like so many photographers in India, and it was an incredibly demanding and taxing pursuit. However, gradually I realized that even portrait, wedding and
advertising photography need the same patience, concentration, dedication and skills. I have explored
different avenues of photography, and constantly keep trying to push the boundaries of my knowledge and experience.
As an ardent wedding photographer, I do shoot the whole gamut of photographs that are required to be
captured at such an event (including all the rituals). But, I also like to have outdoor pre-wedding shots of the
marrying couple, which sort of ‘breaks the ice’, opening up a ‘comfort-zone’ between the couple and the
photographer. My clients are thus more relaxed, and this serves to create candid and better photographs. As
a wedding photographer, I of course change my themes according to the light conditions and locations where I shoot, and the comfort of my clients.
I started my photographic career using a Nikon N2000 film SLR, followed by a digital Nikon D90 with several old and new lenses. Presently I use a Nikon D800, and like to shoot with prime lenses, but zooms are definitely an indispensable, if not often used, part of my kit. My passion for photography stems from the belief that it is a medium that allows me to express what’s within my “mind’s eye”, and bring it forth for my viewers.” As told to Rohinton Mehta
