As for my knowledge.. “I’m still collecting the shells at the beach and the whole wide open sea is yet to discover”
Professional Photography has become an intrinsic part of my life and I can’t imagine a time when I will ever stop taking images. Once you start, you never stop. My introduction to photography started innocently enough with the purchase of a small Olympus Trip10 film roll camera at the age of ten. Film roll was of course expensive to experiment.
In 1999, during my graduation days, I was introduced to Digital Photography when my cousin gifted Intel’s first digital camera CS 630 to me. It was cool to take pictures and of course the pictures that cost nothing. At the very same time of life, I started getting my hands dirty with Adobe Photoshop and those nerdy tricks of changing faces of people and bodies, interchanging, composting and morphing. It was that introduction to software side, that sparked the creative bug and now I have control over all aspects of my photography work, with my softer side better than the most photographers around me.
Moving from Intel CS 630, I then moved to more sophisticated cameras like Canon A80 with manual functions of Aperture and Shutter Controls & Canon SD450 point & shoot cameras, And finally to the current age DSLRs , Canon 450D EOS rebel XSI.
I have always been interested in multimedia and have extensive work experience with other graphics and animation tools like Flash, Fireworks, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere etc. And still i enjoy making motion videos from still images.
After getting my DSLR, i took photography seriously and took photography guidance and trainings from Photography gurus like Franco Fontana, Natalie Fobes, Michael Zelbel, Rick Sammon and many more.
Many of my influences come from fashion photography, reportage and advertising photography. The list of influences is huge, but I especially admire the work of photographers like Larry Burrows and John Claridge, both of whom have produce(d) work that mixes distinctive reportage image styles with a more artistic commercial look – their photographic images have significantly influenced my work.
