Bangalore, Karnataka, India
I am an independent photographer based out of Bangalore, India, with over 10 years of photographic experience.
Technology, Lifestyle, Urbanization, Human Rights, Art & Culture are topics I like to work with. I believe that in a true democracy everybody has a right to a life with dignity regardless of their background. These motivations are a conduit for the exploration about life that comes easy to some and is almost impossibly arduous for others. I believe that any form of art has a very important role to play in fostering a sense of understanding between people in a very direct and unadulterated manner. And photography to me is the most immediate.
Whether I am shooting a trans-gender festival in rural Tamil Nadu in the peak of summer, taking portraits of leading corporate personalities in the comfort of their office or shooting products in a studio environment, my skills make me highly adaptable and flexible to a diverse set of challenges. This is based on a solid foundation of the fundamentals of photography backed by years of experience and collaborating with various people on a variety of projects. Being accepted by Getty Images in 2013 as part of their roster of freelancers the world over, is just another result of this dedication to the craft, having been published and worked for international publications such as The New York Times, Financial Times, and Harvard Business Review.
My commercial clients include Volvo, Nestle, UVEX (Germany), Snecma-HAL, SAFRAN (France) and Azim Premji Foundation, among others. I love to take up challenging projects whether it's a commercial assignment or work of an editorial and photo-journalistic nature.
Please get in touch if you are interested in working with a person with strong work ethics, a no compromise attitude and, a reliable and friendly personality.
