Sketching 

When words become unclear,

I shall focus with photographs.

When images become inadequate, 

I shall be content with silence.

Ansal Adams

I had a keen interest in arts from a very young age. I used to make sketches of landscapes and people. My first income came from sketching faces in school and college festivals. I still tutor students on sketching techniques once in a while. Sketching has really helped me bring out my creativity. Though I have been sketching all my life, I started photography on the side which has become my passion now after having been pursuing this interest for more than two decade. Here are some of my sketches. 

Photography

Being an enthusiastic traveler, I've had the opportunity to do photography in some of the most beautiful and remote locations. Be it shooting a high altitude landscape, a candid portrait, a desolate jungle or capturing waves of a wild ocean - photography helps me channelize my creativity and develop a deeper connection with nature and people.

Fine Art Photography

Over the years my work has evolved towards fine art photography. For me photography is a lot more than capturing pictures - It is a medium that allows me to express myself, my creativity and my spirituality. I keep a strong emphasis on light and composition. I try to give my pictures a deeper meaning which is often accompanied by a meaningful message. Being a spiritual practitioner you can see a lot of such inclination in my work. Iā€™m grateful to God who has given me an eye that sometimes lets me see things in a different way.

Spirituality

I am a Kriya yoga practitioner and have been associated with Hamsa Yoga Sangh and Self realization fellowship. I draw great strength and wisdom from this practice in facing and overcoming various challenges of life. I feel blessed to be on this path and it has become an integral part of my life now. I am also involved in a few charitable causes in and around my city. I hope one day I can fully pursue the path of self realization and dedicate my life to charitable work.
