I’m a 19-year-old photographer & a student based in Delhi, India. It’s been around 4 years since I’ve entered in the field of photography and have been photographing into the various genre. I enjoy photographing the various festivals that occur in my country throughout the year. Apart from that, I love photographing landscape and street. I also do commercial work, as I get to meet new people and learn new things! Recently I’ve also developed my interest in making documentaries, filming & publishing photo journals. I’m also working with NurPhoto Agency based in Italy as a photojournalist.
I believe a photograph is something that should tell a story and be connecting to the spectator.

SCHOOLING AND PASSION
I have done my schooling from Delhi Public School Indirapuram.
School has always been an interesting part of my life. I wanted to pursue science as I was fascinated to become an astronaut haha! Nevertheless, I couldn’t do good at maths so I chose commerce which counsellor recommended me but this led me to a total destruction of a whole new year in my academical field.
I had no idea what photography was until 2015 back then. I discovered it but never took it seriously.
It seems like school was something where I learned everything other than studies! Not to mention politics and hustle but I also got a lot of exposure towards various genre, and how people treat each other.
I completely failed and had zero interest in academics. I restarted my studies by taking up arts which I really liked.
It was just a matter of a few months, I was performing better than average in academics and gradually improving and had done great at photography. Winning more than 5 prestigious competitions within a year and a National Level competition in photography and bracing something to do great ahead. I was made Creative Head of Photography department of my school and I also founded THE MEDIA CLUB of my institute. It was a complete 360o turn around for me.
After this, I completely discovered my passion and was sure about my life and my career I want to pursue.
I realized and have watermark quote on my mind that “Discover your passion, and follow it, discard fascination”.
This failure and success adventure, made me believe “Success comes in the form of failure sometimes”
Failure bounce backs in the form of success.
My interest in the field of photography was an accident. I was in a marriage of my cousin where I accidentally opened my phone’s camera (an average android phone of 2015, gifted by my grandmother). To be precise it was Lenovo K3 Note! Just to experiment upon I clicked a picture of a bench which was lying on a path in warm low light and somehow that picture made me write a short narrative. Since then I just clicked pictures unaware of any field regarding photography and wrote about it, I made an Instagram page at the very same night which made me post quite frequently as I craved for followers on social media, therefore I slowly started photographing.
I now realize that craving for social media fame is the stupidest idea an artist can ever have! I still have a few hundreds of audiences on social media and I’m absolutely happy with it.
I believe “Art is never rated upon followers, likes and fame”.
It was the year 2018 when my parents were quite happy with my art and they purchased me a camera which I still use and within a month I got featured on National Geographic India! This came to me as a big surprise. My first achievement and directly from Nat Geo was next to impossible to believe. It was a dream come true at such a tender age.
It made me realize only one thing- “When you do a thing with both heart and soul success is guaranteed”
When there was no school, I use to get up at 3am and go for photo walks and that was my input towards my passion.
Apart from this I also love music so I have done a senior diploma in the field of music (Synthesizer). It’s been more than 5 years since I have started learning music and I play mostly Indian Classical (Raga). Music has been a great stress buster as well a way to express me and charm other people.
And that’s it! If you would like to know more about me then just send me a message!
Always there to help you out. Reach out to me on social media.
