I believe every good picture is a memory frozen in time. Good pictures help people relive their special moments in life. I started learning photography so that I could capture those special moments in life for myself and then realised it gave me immense satisfaction to help others do the same. Equally important is that photography lets me manifest my creative side and also meet some amazing people on the job. It's a great satisfaction to see my clients happy and appreciate my work as they gaze over their special days through my lenses.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done a variety of shoots ranging from fashion editorials, product studio shoots with models, wedding, portraits, family portraits and events. I treat each style differently and each client differently. The first step to make a shoot special is understanding my clients needs and then infuse my vision into it. I take utmost care to ensure that my clients are happy with the end results. That might sometimes mean redoing part of a shoot, provide some extra photos in an event or sometimes provide multiple edited versions of the same photo that reflect different moods.
