Q: When did you start taking photographs and why did you continue?

Q: Do you have formal training as a photographer or are you self-taught? What was that journey like?

A: I am a self taught photographer. I picked up my first ever DSLR (a Nikon D90) back in 2009 and started photography as a creative outlet from my very hectic job. I learnt to shoot in manual focus from various photography resources and shot a lot when traveling. I also got a lot of practice from willing friends and family who always trusted me to capture their memories. Fast forward few years and my passion was re-ignited when my daughter was born. I love documenting her growing years and capturing her personality through my work.

 

Q: What details do you believe make the best photographs? How do you go about focusing on them in your work?

A: To me details are anything that evokes an emotion or a memory. I look for such things to add to the story.

Q: What is the most rewarding part of being a photographer?

A: The most rewarding part of being a photographer is the opportunity to capture precious memories for families to enjoy and treasure for life.

 

Q: How do you bring the best out of your models? What tips do you have?

A: When your model is your kid it can get challenging but I try to make it part of her play and adventure. We just try to have fun and if all fails then a little bribe can go a long way ;-)
