Arka Mukhopadhyay is a fine art Photographer from Pittsburgh, PA, United States.
Born in Kolkata, India, Arka got his degree in Engineering and started his career as a Software Engineer in 2006. Working as an IT Consultant gave him an opportunity to travel to different parts of the world and a camera started becoming his constant companion. Which once was just a hobby became something more serious when Arka got his first recognition in an International travel photography competition. Run by an International travel magazine, one of Arka's photographs made it to the finals and went on to get published. The year after, Arka got some more recognition when more than one of his photographs won honorary mentions in another competition.
Today, Arka continues his day job in IT but along with that he pursues his studies of Photography from the New York Institute of Photography. Though becoming a full time photographer is his dream, having a day job helps him focus on the art and not worry about paying bills - he says. While Arka works hard to improve his imagery, his works continue to get published in leading magazines across the world.
