I am a police officer by profession and a photographer by passion.
I pursue photography in my free time. People often ask me how I manage time between job, family and photography. I tell them that time is about priorities. And my favorite quote in this context is, “Life is short. If there was ever a moment to follow your passion, to do something that matters to you, that moment is now.”
I bought my first DSLR in 2014 and took to the streets only to fall in love with street photography. It shook my out of my comfort zone, it added a whole new dimension to my life and personality and it gave me a new identity, that of a photographer I made mistakes and learnt from my mistakes.
I had to struggle to overcome the inhibitions of shooting on streets. Street Photography to me is the art of seeing the unusual in the usual. It is about freezing a moment in time, with all its beauty and splendour, for eternity, thus making an ordinary moment extraordinary.
