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

I am an Insurance professional, in marketing for more than thirty years.Working with LIC of India in Bangalore, spent most of my life in Bangalore itself.I developed an interest in photography quite late in life after I turned 50 years!, as I was bored with doing the same thing in life, like going to the office, selling life insurance, reaching targets etc.I was lucky to find the right kind of people who inspired me to take up photography in 2012. Started with a basic camera and lens, to begin with, and graduated to professional grade equipment.
