Street / Documentary Photographer


Photography for me is to capture decisive moments. As a photographer, I believe the most important thing is to respect my subjects and the surrounding ambience. I know I am not going to get a good photo every time I shoot. I try exploring things which is new and unique. The camera is my constant companion wherever I go. I believe, if you are in a habit of taking photograph everyday then it will become a reflex action and your mind will instruct when to click and what to click. I think one has to be the true critic of his own photos. I prefer to review my own photos repeatedly on a regular basis to improve my photographic sense. Reading various photography magazines has become my daily habit.
