About Me:

I am a photographer based out of India. My passion lies in capturing images of people I’m intrigued by—their faces, the stories behind them, their lifestyles, cultures, and traditions. I like endlessly roaming around the streets, wherever I go, and spend time learning and understanding my subjects. Also, as is apparent from my blog, I do have a soft corner for portraits and images in black and white! If you would like to work with me for assignments and commissioned works, get in touch with me here.

About This Photoblog:

On August 1, 2008 I started this photoblog to showcase the images of people that I shoot  and creating images for this photoblog has always been an exciting and fulfilling challenge. As a mark of my fondness for black and white, this site uses only different shades of grey for all its elements.





Collaborations and Assignments:

GoPro • Google Pixel • Skoda • Daniel Wellington • Philippines Tourism •  Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia • Garuda Indonesia • Dream Cruises • WirtschaftsWoche • Brussels Airlines • Forsyth Lodge • Victorinox

  2. Hi,
    I’m Bennett White. I am a current graphic design student at Tallahassee Community College( Florida, US) and i was wondering if it would be alright to use one of your images in my project. it is only meant to be graded. will not be printed or published. thank you

  3. Hi Joshi… Just wanted to thank you for your ‘like’ on my blog. You are are true professional… as showcased on this beautiful blog of yours. I’m honoured you took the time to look at mine.
    Thanks again!

  4. Thank you for visiting my blog “Eyes to Heart” and liking my post “The Watchers.” … Your own photography is spectacular. It means a lot that you would notice mine and provide feedback by way of a “like.” . … Be well, Dorothy :-)

  5. Hi Josi, I wanted you to know that you are the Artist of the Day on my blog:


    Please let me know if you would like me to add or change anything.

    The main purpose of the blog is to share the ‘Artistic Process’. What and where artists do what they do to create their art.

    I’d appreciate it if you would consider sending me some photos for my ‘Work Spaces’ and/or ‘Making It’ categories.

    Please send any photos to mfsmith46@gmail.com.

    And, of course, I’d like you to share this with anyone who might be interested.

    I have received messages like the following:
    Darcy commented on Artist of the Day / Sandy Martinez
    “Thanks for allowing us to know a bit more about the artist.”

    thanks, Mike

  6. Your street portraits – wow! The kind of images I always hope to produce when I travel, but just seem incapable of. Congratulations on some stunning work.

  7. Hi, Joshi. I hate Facebook. I’ve never been very good at that sort of thing. I can’t figure out what to say on it. The only reason I set up an account was to keep up with my old work buddies at a bookstore. They wanted to know how I was doing but were too busy to check my blog, so they wheedled me into creating an account so they could pester me once and awhile. I’ve never expanded it beyond that little group of arm twisters because it exhausts me just trying to keep up with them. Now blogging, and responding to people that way makes sense to me!

  8. I love your photo’s and am actually really flattered that you liked my blog post the other day!


  9. Hello Josh! What a treat to have you visit my blog and like my post! Thank you! Your photoblog is inspiring. I love the images of people and of India. I’ll be back!

  10. Hey,

    you asked the developer of the theme exactly the same question I wanted to ask him:

    Is there any way to change the opacity of the images in the home page?

    Too bad, it seems it is only possible to change this when selfhosting the blog….


  11. Wow! First of all, let me just say how very well done your blog is…
    It is “sticky” and very easy to navigate.
    And your art is also quite excellent.

  12. Your photos make me miss India. So glad you stopped by my blog. I take all my own photos to illustrate the the ideas in “Every Day Life, Every Day Faith.” Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

  13. Hi Joshi, firstly thank you for dropping by my blog and liking my post. I have just had a quick look at some of your images and they are awesome my friend. I too like to do street photography and I will check out your site in more depth later (when I have more time) In the meantime I intend to subscribe and put a link to your site on my blog.

  14. Hi, thanks for your recent “Cheers”. I have seen the world thru your eyes …. Splendid!

    Did you know the work of this guy from Norway? I just put his URLs on my post called Crossroads but go there directly to see the Northern Lights show that he created. Bye, v.

  25. Hi Joshi – thanks for commenting on my site, your images are exceptional! I must travel, I am getting so bored with my current location am taking pics of the damn walls!! :0)

  26. Wonderful snaps Daniel. Though i have been following you on Facebook from a long time i did not find time to go through all your images until today.

    I must admit that the essence of your photography lies in the expressions of the people’s faces. Brilliant work.

    All your B&W snaps has its own charm and that’s one of my area of interest.

    My best wishes to your future beautiful captures.
