My journey as a photographer started 5 years back. It is the by-product of my love for traveling, which turned into a profession for me. I do travel and landscape photography as a hobby and fashion product and lifestyle photography as a profession.
I joined the exclusive 8 days course at Delhi school of photography to learn the basics and later learned the depth of the same on my own. I believe in capturing the essence of a place in an exemplary way. My pictures have been exhibited at the prestigious India Habitat center on 2 occasions. Moreover, my collection was displayed at Alliance Francaise de Delhi for 6 months to promote French tourism in India. “They say a picture is worth a thousand words” and I am proud to be associate with reputed brands such as Fizzy Goblet, Itar, Geisha Designs, and many more on fashion and lifestyle assignments. Many of my pictures have been appreciated & published in National Geographic Magazine, India Photo Art magazine and Nikon India, etc.
Sunset at Staknay Monastery near Leh in autumn.
I got a chance to click this beautiful place called Place de Bourse covered by infinite clouds and sprinkled mist in Bordeaux, the city of wine and magnificent architecture. As I waited for the desired frame and the right moment I suddenly noticed this lady crossing the man-made reflection pond. It seemed as if she appeared out of nowhere, her striking red dress added a vibrant dash of colour to the alluring frame.
This is white rock beach in a small lazy town of British Colombia called Surrey. I made this picture just before the sun was about the sink in the sea. One can feel the calmness of the sea and sunset.
Jasper national park in Canada is famous for its winter wildlife. Here’s a sudden encounter with this bunch of wild goats loitering on the highway while we were driving around the national park.
This picture is a combination of warm and cool tones of the Arabian Dessert. The magical sky radiating the colours of sunrise and the cool morning sand creating a majestic scene of the dessert. The other thing that catches the eye is the somewhat out of the place person strolling through the dunes of sand. The white colour of the thawb standing out against the brown sands. Overall, the picture is a unique combination of opposite shades and an interesting view of the desert.
The picture involves a beautiful snow-tipped mountain in the backdrop along with the magical cloudy peach sky along with the neon yellow and red light trails adding light and glimmer to otherwise dark grey roads. The essence of nature coming from the mountains combined with the bustling city atmosphere makes this picture unique and one of my favourite.
The idea behind taking this picture is the multiple layers each having its own beauty. Firstly the greyish blue sky eluding a sense of calm, then the mountain range, followed by the row of endless trees, and finally the semi-frozen lake. And to add warmth to the whole scene is the small little bench.
This is a picture of an island in the middle of the sea in Finland. The collection of colours in the center of the frame surrounded by the plain white surroundings that is actually the overacted sky and snowy sea, allows it to pop out much more and it draws attention to the simple yet fascinating scene in the middle.
Cityscape of Dubai has a charm of its own. This picture is taken from the 65th floor of the building opposite Burj khalifa to capture Dubai in its full glory. Here is an amalgamation of sunset colours covering the sky, the landmarks of Dubai, and the city lights making the city shine like gold.
Humayun’s tomb, the monument of love built by the emperor Humayun’s wife for the emperor is the inspiration behind the Taj Mahal. Here’s a lady bathing in the heavenly sun rays penetrating through one of the windows of this legendary tomb.
Semi frozen Johnson Canyon falls, one of the most famous and busiest falls of Alberta, Canada. A hike of 30 mins and one reaches the cave from where one can see this fall from as close as 10 feet. The golden sunlight penetrating through the cave and falling on the milky white waterfall is lighting up the whole scene.
This is Jasper, the prettiest corner on earth. This is the most magical experience of my life. I waited for 15 mins after placing my camera and tripod at -6 degrees Celsius when suddenly these white snow-covered mountains started to change their colour and turned into solid gold. The site was nothing less than magic unfolding.
Snow-covered Saffron fields in Kashmir, Saffron blooms in October, the flowers are harvested just before winters. The pits made for saffrons are still there after the crop has been removed and when the snow falls it makes beautiful patterns. Here’s a lonely Chinar standing tall on this never-ending patterned land.
This is a picture of a semi-frozen waterfall somewhere in Kashmir Valley. What we see in the picture are different forms of water, the frozen form, the snow, and the liquid form. I took this picture at a slow shutter to give a slight milky effect to the waterfall.
Here’s a fairytale morning from Canmore a small town in Alberta. The blurry pink and blue sky, the mountains sprinkled with snow, the enthralling dark blue waters, and the old engine bridge make it look like a scene from a fairy tale but actually it’s in real life.
