Picked up a camera a few years back because he had nothing better to do that summer. Little did he know , that camera would change his life. With Photography he found an art form which lets him express the world around him, the way he see it.
What he loves about photography is that it means so many different things to so many different people.
For him it is a source to see new places, meet new people and understand different perspectives and with Photography came this longing of travelling.
That is all he does now, He clicks. He travels. Oh and he eats.
