Hi, I am a banker by profession, working with YES Bank Ltd as an Assistant Vice President. Wildlife has always been my interest since childhood, but 3 years back my casual trip to Gir National park, was a major turnaround and I started learning photography since then. Though I have not obtained any dedicated certification from any photography institute, my association with DCP Expeditions since beginning helped me evolved as a wildlife photographer. All the group leaders, skippers of the team DCP have been guiding me since I joined. Veteran wildlife photographers like Caesar Sengupta, Rahul Sachdev, Amit Rane, Yuwraj Gurjar and Kane Lew have been my guiding stars and I owe a lot to these Gurus. (Influential Teachers)
In wildlife & Nature photography, I have been exploring all the areas such as Mammals, Birds, Macro, Landscape etc. However apart from Wildlife photography, I have also had an opportunity to try my hands on Food, Product, Fashion and Wedding Photography. And I would like to keep myself open to all genres of photography.
So far my work has been recognized by leading International nature & conservation institutions like NGC, BBC Wildlife Magazine, iNaturalist etc. and I have also won few awards and accolades at various National level wildlife Photography contests. Currently associated with team DCP Expeditions as Skipper and conduct many photo walks and expeditions sharing my knowledge with budding photographers.
