I have been interested in capturing the world the way I perceive it and presenting it on a canvas that moves people. Before I ever held a camera in my hands, I had the ability to find a unique perspective on all that surrounded me. I always knew that I had a creative streak in me as I am from West Bengal, the birthplace of many of the country’s top artists.

After moving to Mussoorie in 2009, I discovered my interest in nature and wildlife. Since then, I have been investing in cameras and better equipment in order to transfer the natural world onto a photographic medium. That has been the result of hundreds of hours waiting in extreme temperatures, inhospitable surroundings, and downright dangerous locations in order to capture the perfect shot. This has evolved into taking photographs of the most emotive and diverse species of mammals, human beings. I am passionate about taking candid photographs of people, mostly in public places.

Combined with my interest in hiking and motorcycling, my photography also took on the element of the travel variety. I am a veteran of traveling to places few people travel to. For me the more difficult it is to get to a place, the greater the attraction. This has resulted in some truly exclusive shots that might not have made it to the shutters of other cameras.

My travels have brought me into contact with people from all walks of life, of all ages, each with their outlooks on life. These experiences have only deepened my interest in the human condition and have also led me to work on candid portraits of people.

In order to pursue my varied photographic interests, which is not the most financially rewarding activity that a photographer can participate in, I have been working as a wedding photographer for the past three years. What started as a means to make money for better equipment, has genuinely become a passion in itself. I have discovered that Indian weddings offer a full range of emotions in people. Along with this, I have also become a regular photographer at all sorts of festivals, gatherings and events.
