A Little Bit About Me
About My Photography
I do street, landscape, and travel photography. Apart from this, I write, and I like to write. My brain works best in black & white photography, but I do color as well. When I started my career, or life, in photography, I shot exclusively in black & white film. Those days, I shot with an Olympus OM-2n. Since then, I moved on to digital photography, and mostly use a Nikon D810. However, I am in the market for a Fuji camera, so I hope I buy it soon!
I still own my Olympus OM-2n, and I own a few more film cameras. I own the Nikon F-75, three vintage cameras (one does not work), a Lomography Camera, and two pinhole cameras.
I spent most of my career in the corporate world and had the pleasure of traveling to over 30 countries. Apart from my home country, India, I have lived in England, China, and Singapore. If I had not moved back to India, I would have chosen to live in Singapore.
I am an engineer, but I spent most of my career in the food and health industries. There is not much point in revealing which colleges I have attended, because it is irrelevant to the world we live in. What I can say, is that I was finally booted out, because my last boss thought I was too independent, and that I did not defer enough to him. He probably wished that I had worshipped him.
No one knows what the future looks like, and neither do I. However, I see my direction going in the direction of coaching, in matters of photography, leadership, and business strategy. One of these will win the race in the end.
