It is truly wonderful to pursue one’s passion, creativity and exploration along life’s journey through photography and art. This has helped me to discover the joy, emotions and beauty around us by capturing special moments wherever I’ve travelled in India and overseas in North America, Europe and Asia.


I have been inspired by the art of Raghu Rai, a Living Legend in the word of photography as well as Ansel Adams. I have been fortunate to meet and interact with Raghu Rai, and other acclaimed photographers and look forward to their blessings on this journey of exploration. Yes, I wish to have my own exhibit and books published in near future.

Music is my other inspiration and I have been fortunate to be associated with SPIC MACAY (Society for Promotion of International Music and Culture amongst Youth ). I have had to fortune to capture the Living Legends of Indian Classical Music as well as some international ones over the recent years.

My love for travel can never subside.

My professional career of 25 years in Information Technology Solutions and Services has now paved way to be co-founder of Earth Now, a geospatial tech startup in that can impact and aims to resolve local or global issues in agriculture, forestry, water conservation and climate change.

The journey thus far would not have been possible without love and guidance from my parents, and special bonding with my loving wife and daughter.

I feel that it is a privilege to represent India and be associated with Pictas Collective, an amazing consortium of international photographers. On Pictas, I look forward to sharing with you my favorite moments in portraiture (contextual), cityscapes (heritage and urban architecture, street photography), landscapes, macro and abstract/conceptual themes.
