I am a freelance photographer from India. My passion is photographing people because faces and stories behind them, life styles, various cultures and traditions fascinates me. I would like to capture as many different faces as I can. I like wandering the streets for hours looking for something that holds my attention and I also spend time learning and understanding my subjects. It also goes without saying that “I shoot what I like”.
I am available for assignments and commissioned works. Click here to contact me.
If you would like to buy a print of any of the images please do get in touch with me.
