I love sharing knowledge and as a photography mentor my most requested session being 'Explore the Magic Of Photography - a beginners session learning the basics of photography." My students are kids, doctors, small business owners from across the globe.
Photography is a mindfulness or meditative practise for me. A great stress buster. It grounds me to the present moment & I connect with the minutest expressions & moments presented before me as a candid portrait artist. The inclusive eye of a camera , accepting every being as they are resonates with me , and I know have found my purpose in photography & I hope to continue to impact lives positively.
One of the most memorable portraits:
"It's hard to choose, a single image. Behind every image is a unique story!
"This image is from a Branding Shoot in 2014, where I volunteered for an NGO fostering HIV orphans & children of sex workers. To volunteered to capture their story through images and garner them financial aid. With a rather empathetic heart I went to the shoot location. But the hope & zest in the eyes of these children amazed me. They were so eager to learn & explore. Curious about my works & keen to learn what they can in very the little time I was there. This image I call "HOPE". Her eyes were as bright and filled with hope; similar to that of any rising entrepreneur. Shot during a candid conversation, with just a natural window light using my 85mm portrait lens. She gleamed before my camera, her eyes wide open to endless possibilities before her, full of aspirations and hope ." I believe, every child is entitled to Hope, Education, a Future and Unconditional Love!
