1) Would you tell us more about you and your interest in Photography?

It started at a young age. One of my uncles was a photographer and it he helped deepen my interest. I worked as a darkroom technician and a wedding photographer, and later moved on to B&W pictures.

2) Can you please tell us about the types of Photography you indulge with?

I do mostly B&W photos, as still lives and abstract compositions. I still shoot with a 50-year-old film SLR.

3) What is the inspiration that keeps you going?

The sheer vibrancy and diversity of the world around us. The abundance of textures and shadows, and what they tell us.

4) How do you feel when your work is exhibited and viewed by tons of people?

Very happy to be seen, appreciated and related to.

5) Can you tell us something about Photography and its inception?

It came from man’s need to document sights as memories. Chemistry was quite important in the early days, and the pioneers did a lot of experimentation. It’s vital that modern photographers understand the roots.

6) To you, what is Photography?

Like any art form, it’s self-expression; it’s an exploration and reinterpretation too.

7) Please share us some of your achievements in Photography Profession?

3 solo shows, 2 group shows, a few photographs in private collections.

8) Can you tell us something about your Photography community?

It’s a very small community that I preserve. I have my own group of mentors and peers who help evaluate and enrich my work.

9) Can you tell us about the general response you receive in exhibitions?

They generate a bit of interest and promote my image. It does not sell much.

10) What do you think about the scope of Photography in the modern Digital world?

It opens up many possibilities and makes photography more accessible and democratic. It also could bring down the preciousness of a frame, and thus, perhaps, reduce the insistence on quality. Image editing can have a negative effect too, by reducing the way photographers invest in each picture.

Excellent team, great results, very reliable. They understand photography and a photographer’s needs, and spare no effort in providing the perfect solution.
