What I love to shoot
I am a self-taught photographer and photography mentor, and I’m lucky to call the majestic subcontinent India, my home. The love for traveling in me is insatiable and my other lifelines are a few adorable kitties and an amazingly cute pup who has adopted me.

Here are some photos from my archive for you to enjoy!
My journey in photography began with an emotional response to the world around me. It is important to me that a photograph communicates with my emotions. It needs to have a message, a feeling, a question, or something that makes me curious or shows the energy of the subject. I make an effort that my photographs puts the viewer in a moment of time, evokes senses, and tells a story.
I try to feel what my subject might be feeling. If we can tap into someone’s spirit, it opens us up as an artist. It can be a feeling of deep respect or fear or love or pain or inspiration or hope, or a memory transporting you to another place and time. I try to focus on the human elements of empathy, compassion, dignity, humility. That’s a very powerful connector, and that’s what photography feels like to me. We are nothing as human beings if we don’t experience the connection. If that connection means something to me then there’s a chance that it would mean something to other people.

I root for a clean beautiful sustainable planet, created out of love and compassion for the environment and all living things. I am deeply involved in the environment, human rights, and animal-rights related projects now, and that gives a purpose to my photography.
