I Born in a small village called Hulikal (Hassan district), Karnataka, close to western Ghats of India. I work as a R&D Firmware Engineer at on of the Life Science organization.
My love towards photography started when I was doing my Bachelors Degree. The beauty of nature and daily life of people around me which I could see in a different perspective made me to enjoy, create stories and capture those moments in my mind without a camera and sharing those beautiful moments with my friends and family. That was when my friends and family identified my hidden skills towards photography. In 2013 I bought my first basic DSLR camera.
In 2018 November, I started my salon journey. Inspired by many great photographers, I was encouraged to further develop my photography techniques. I saw some of the beautiful pictorial photographs by great photographers around the world which opened my eyes. Then I started shooting more into Fine Art and Travel genre which I love to capture most. Apart from photography, I would love to travel to different places and capture beauty of different cultures. Photography has certainly changed my life in the sense that the way I see the surrounding world differently.
This is my first distinction. I am grateful for the support from the Youth Photographic Society and all the photography community and I would like to continue to share with you the precious moments captured through the eyes of my camera.
