I have been doing photography since 2014, after completing graduation. I did BTech in architecture and planning from MANIT, Bhopal, in 2013. I had interest in photography since then. I used to take tuitions when I was in third and fourth year and bought a Fujifilm SX 300 camera from tuition fee. No one in my family is from this field. My parents accepted my choice when they saw my passion for photography. I mostly do wedding photography. I have also done photography for interior, products, Unicef, and forest department. Now, I own camera with equipment worth Rs 6 lakh. I am elated and satisfied with my work.
