A Sir JJ School of Arts Alumnus, I started my career as an Art Director and Designer to stay close to my first love, painting. A little later, I bought myself my first DSLR, and discovered that painting doesn’t necessarily need a brush caked with paint. And being in advertising, I was lucky enough to have worked with some of the best photographers in the industry, picking up a little something from each one I worked with along the way. Over time, I’ve managed to develop a distinct style that gives more importance to capturing the moment, the emotion involved, rather than just capturing a beautiful frame. To me, it’s about the story, about being in that moment; the joy, nerves, laughter and tears, as they happen.
I live in Mumbai with my lovely wife, Pooja, and two kids: my 17-month-old daughter, Myraa, and my 4-year-old Labrador, Phantom.
