“Challenges make it worthwhile”
Initial spark for photography
Inside my head
No formal training. I’m just about literate.
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.
One Full Frame Camera Body. 3-4 prime lenses. A tripod.
Most memorable project
Benaras. Because it was self-commissioned.
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.
