Chennai Tamilnadu India
I was born and brought up in a small village named Jaggannapeta in East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. I studied in boarding school from 8th grade, and since then I was away from home either for studies or work. I am currently based at Chennai working in IT. Art has been something that has always come to me naturally. Right from childhood I had a great interest in sketching, painting and things that required creativity. I'm an avid traveler too. I like to sit and watch the beauty of nature and always wanted to freeze that moment and the best way to do it was through a camera. But this passion never caught hold of me until I joined Chennai trekking club. After seeing beautiful photos posted and shared by fellow trekkers, I decided to pursue my passion and then gave it a shot and bought my first camera. Since then I got hooked up to photography and it turned into an enthusiastic passion now. Its been 4.5 years and I never looked back. Currently I spend most of my weekends and vacations photographing and traveling to new places. My dream is to travel every corner of India. As being in Chennai, currently I traveled most of south India and yet to explore north India. I started shooting all genres which ever looked beautiful to me, and used to try every new technique mentioned in magazines and different photography blogs. At first, I was inclined to capture long exposures and landscapes alone. Also used to experiment with creative photography like matchsticks, steel wool, smoke etc. Finally I realized my interest and passion towards travel photography and thereby started focusing more on people and landscapes. I like to capture surrealistic landscapes and people in candid moments during their daily routines. I always look for unique view of perspective in capturing photos in a way that it describes and speaks for itself. And this gives me utmost satisfaction as this passion of photography demands me to be more creative and helps me to strive even harder towards capturing picture in the best possible way through my camera.
