I have been in advertising photography for the past 24 years. In this span I have shot for top advertising agencies, publications & reputed brands/companies (few of them include Lintas, JWT, Mudra, R.K. Swamy, Avenues, McCann, Madison, Godrej Boyce, Camlin, Raymond, Bombay Dyeing, Birla Century, Century Cotton, Cipla, DC Tex, Orra Diamonds, Cygnus Diamonds, Lagoo bandhoo, Chintamani, Panneri, Roop Sangam, Hindustan Lever, SBI, HDFC, LIC, Central Bank of India etc etc), . My forte of work being fashion photography, portraits & still lifes… this is because I firmly believe that change of work is rest.Few years back I decided to impart what I have learnt to the next generation of photographers by way of conducting workshops. Since technology changes with time, my focus has always been on the ‘art’ of the subject than the ‘craft’ of the subject. Till date I have conducted over 80 such workshops. I am also a visiting faculty for fashion photography to Symbiosis School of photography, BD Somani Inst of Fashion Technology, Raheja College, Rachna Sansad etc. I was honored
to conduct workshops at the Kalaghoda festival & at NCPA. Being a freelance writer for the magazine Smart Photography, almost 30 of my articles have been published so far. I feel that fine arts is the base of photography and my inherited background of fine arts, always pushes me to say that I never did arts after schooling, but I was born in an art school.
