Planning and execution process of a photography assignment

I’m not much of a planner. A recce is a good thing to do before a shoot.

Favorite part of a shoot

I love every aspect of my work. No favourites as such. The challenge is what makes it worthwhile.

Inspiration and motivation

Prabuddha Dasgupta. I don’t shoot great pictures. I might someday, and that motivates me to keep trying.

Your idea of a perfect picture

Even the word ‘perfect’ isn’t perfect. I’ve never done anything perfect in my life. The day I do I won’t have anything to look forward to.

Advice for aspiring photographers

I don’t advice people as a general rule. Everyone has their own stories to tell and keep.
