ABOUT

After completing my Bachelors in Business Administration, I decided it was time for change. I chose photography, since that was the only other thing I knew. I dreamt of a life where I will walk the mountains with my camera and bask in the smaller joys of life. I studied the subject at Jamia Millia Islamia’s Mass Communication Research Centre and stepped into the world of professional photography.

Since, I worked on a couple of curation projects, found a mentor in senior photographer Amit Mehra, started working on personal projects, worked with VII Agency photographers, Stephanie Sinclair and Jessica Dimmock and interned at the national daily Hindustan Times in New Delhi – in the same order. Hindustan Times ended up hiring me. It provided for my bread and butter for the next three years.

With Hindustan Times I worked ardently on feature stories, my first love. I undertook multimedia projects and indulged in story telling, while juggling between photography, videomaking and writing. While the newspaper kept me on my toes, I found time to pursue projects of personal interest in the little free time I got.

Currently employed with Thomson Reuters, I am fidgeting with an iPhone to explore the world of phone photography.
