I am a self-taught photographer currently based in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Ever since my childhood I was deeply fascinated by the visually striking moments,  different culture, beautiful landscapes and barely emphasised on the composition, art and drama part of it like any other child. But now my photography has been framed by the confines of my perception. People and culture are always at the heart of my work.

Being constantly inspired by master photographers like Henri-Cartier Bresson, Raghubir Singh, Raghu rai, Prabuddha Das Gupta, Dayanita Singh, Eric Kim and many more in my never ending list, I try to be original ,natural and distinctively me.

I believe that everyone has a story and I am here to create a long lasting memory out of it. It’s this dedication, connection with my clients and inspiration, that the most important element of my approach revolves around.

I specialize in Documentary, Wedding, Street, Travel Photography. I take one assignment at a time to give full justice to it. Especially during weddings I believe in creating a true reflection of oneself on the most important day of their life. I use my imagination, creativity, experience and professionalism to capture one’s special moments and expressive emotions.

When I am not shooting I travel across India and work on my Photo Series. Contact me to talk in detail and to view more of our portfolio. I would be happy to know your story.
