2. Your Photography/Travel experience: Tell us since when you've been taking pictures or started exploring places. When did you start taking photography/Travel seriously?     A. My parents were avid travellers and I had the travel gene imparted from them. I started exploring and clicking photographs when I travelled on my own. My first solo trip was to Ladakh almost a decade ago. It was only in January 2014 though that I realised that I could do this for a living, and took this seriously as a profession.

Among the various sources of inspirations are reading accounts of travellers in the book format. I find inspiration in everyday life, in people I meet on the road. Yes, I do have some favourite photographers and bloggers. I really admire Chris Burkard's work and Shivya Nath continues to inspire for doing travel blogging right. When you truly enjoy the work that you do, then motivation comes automatically. I always try and have a conversation with someone before asking them for their picture.
