I have been into painting and art since my childhood and everything around that segment attracts me. It was around 7 years ago when I was going through a rough phase in my life and found photography as an escapade. We bought a very basic DSLR camera & started photography by capturing small things like flowers, fruits, and random things in my house. I had never seen photography as a career. It was just something I was enjoying.
After completing my master's, I began my life as a teacher & continued it for 9 years. After all this time working as a teacher I got an opportunity in a university to work as a deputy registrar & continued working for 7 years. After all these monotonous years of working I had a sudden realization that something is missing from my life but didn't really pay attention until in 2009 I have faced the biggest accident that turned my life upside down, I lost my wife in that accident which shattered my life and I was left with my son who was just 2 years old.
Celebrity shoots are such a good experience but at the same time there is a huge challenge of time. We need to pre-plan a lot to get everything right. Even at regular weddings, pre-planning helps a lot. Team Coordination plays a very important role. We divide our area of work and it helps us avoid our presence in anyone else’s frame. I think being a woman in the industry is not as challenging as people think it is. It is all in the mind. All that fear of being a woman makes it only harder than it really is. Honestly, as long as you are passionate and work hard, your gender doesn’t affect your career at all.
