About Me

I grew up in Kolkata as a single son of my parents. I remember from my schooldays I was fascinated by colours. My parents soon realized my creative self and got me in to formal painting course along with regular studies. Never much interested in the bookish education, it kept on reflecting in my grades. With the growing pressure of the higher classes gradually my painting got subdued. After my graduations I tried to prove myself creative self, wrong by pushing me to the usual staff of getting into a 9 to 5 job and completed my MBA meanwhile. I was doing well in the IT industry as a living but there was always a thirst of something that I never understood then. At 29 with a small savings was able to buy my first DSLR camera. And a new journey started. Every weekend started going out to shoot on the street and once again my creative-self rose up. I started trying to tell the story of emotions and actions.Sometime it blends with textures and warm colours as well. When you blend all of them you get some extraordinary pictures which I call ‘My Craft’.

Beside Photography there is an avid traveller in me. In these travels, I find my solace in the non-interactive humans, silence of the trees, sounds of chirping birds. Although single man, these solo travels made me feel never to settle down by just getting married. In life the presence of some great friends made my life amazing.

Yes, I do love the wedding assignments I get round the year. I devote extreme care and attention to each couple with whom I work and get to know you as a friend. I am excited to photograph you in your wedding day and like to show how you two look amazing and gorgeous on your D day!

Some frequently asked questions

What is your style?

I am a storyteller. I always try to capture moments without directing and intervening. I aim to record and present an authentic story of your day, allowing you to cherish the candid moments as they happen. This helps me to capture different magic moments of your day revealing the true essence and characters of yourselves, your friends, families, and guests. When the time is right, I might direct you to get the picture more engaging and powerful. I intend to provide you pictures that are bold and beautiful and most importantly 'Real'.

What does your coverage include?

We generally include ceremony, bride and groom preparation, reception, dance, party – the entire experience. We provide a complete and comprehensive coverage of the entire wedding. Locations, coverage time, number of images taken, etc are not a barrier – rather we only concentrate on how to tell the story on your most memorable day.

What are your payment terms?

A booking fee/retainer of 30% is required to reserve your date. This retainer is payable by a few different methods: International TT transfer, PayPal, direct bank deposit or Western Union. Another payment of 30% is due 90 days before your event with the final amount due two weeks before the wedding. If booking under 30 days before the wedding the entire contract amount is due at the time of signing.

I know a photographer that charges less than you. Can you match that!

A wise man once said that photography is not a commodity. Driving a Hyundai is not like driving a Lexus. I am proud of being able to give you the “First Class’ of service and quality of work. I believe in value for money and you have my assertions that the final images will stand above the competitors. However, if you have a smaller budget we will be happy to send one of the capable photographers working in my team to your event. Please contact us for more details.

I also need a videographer, could you help me!

We work in association with a few highly professional teams of cinematographers who are very experienced in Indian weddings. I am happy to quote for videography if you feel you need and want a film of your wedding done.

I need a wedding album. Can you quote for that?

I will be more than happy to help you create a truly stunning album of your wedding. Our wedding albums are produced to the highest standard in the industry. Each album is printed in Silver halide paper, offers smooth tones, unmatched details& Vivid Colour. The album comes in a custom album box to create an amazing memory for you and your family. Please let me know and I will be happy to send you more information.

What I will receive from you?

My photography service always includes photography service for up to 10 hours on the wedding day and other days as per the contract. You keep the final high resolution images for personal use. You will own “home use rights” to your images which means that you can do pretty much anything you want with them as long as it doesn’t generate any income for yourself or the people you give them to. Find out all the details in the contract. The images you receive are all color corrected and optimized, print-ready high resolution files good enough for any high-end glossy magazine. I emphasize quality over quantity, employing a “less is more” philosophy.  We will provide you almost 200 ‘Fine Craft’ images and Couple thousand ‘Medium Craft’ images. Our couples usually receive 500 to 1000 images, depending on the nature of their celebration. All the images I shoot at your wedding are backed up in the most reliable and sophisticated back-up system and will stay secure with me for a minimum of two years (2) years

How long will it take you to deliver my pictures?

I understand the excitement that you have, to see your pictures as soon as your wedding gets over. Generally time frames can range anywhere from two weeks to two months, depending on the time of the year and my schedule. Keeping this in mind I generally provide 40 to 50 pictures within a week to cherish your memory – to circulate with your family and friends. In any case, delivery of the final DVD will be less than 90 days from the time of your wedding.

Which camera do you use?

It is really not the camera that creates the image but the person holding it. I use the latest and best equipment that I need to create the magic that you expect me to create.
