Exactly what it is you want to say with your photographs, and how do you actually get your photographs to do that?

I live by Don McCullin words everyday “Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” I look for the moment. There are so many emotions all round. I want to capture all of that. I want the photograph to speak about itself, as everything in this world has a story to tell.

What kind of gear do you use?

I’ve been a Canon user throughout, I started with a 500D. Now, for different projects I use different equipments. For Sports photography I use a 7D, for Wedding Photography or Travel Photography I use a 5D mark III.

Ipod, travel journal and my camera obviously. Music inspires me a lot when im shooting.

Delhi is at par with any city in the world today. It caters to people from all walks of life. People are more aware now everything now. Art has a commercial value and in today’s world artists are being looked upon!
