As I grew up, nothing captivated me more than a story well told, or an incident brilliantly articulated and thus my penchant for capturing moments and creating memories began. The North Star was my passion and zeal to create memories and candid wedding photography was where my heart was.
Thus, started my venture 'Photographians'. Today, I have come a long way - a music video featured on MTV, 7 nominations in India's biggest wedding photography contest, Wedding Photographers of the Year and a runners up in wedding short film making in 2018..
This has been an unending process of learning and discovering love in all forms ... love that is abundant in any family occasion, love for going the extra mile to get those shots that make each wedding so unique and special, love for photography that pushes me to learn and learn some more and the love that I see in the eyes of all those people who chose me to be a part of such special events.
There is only one mantra for a wedding that I shoot - become one with the people, events, rituals, location and capture moments that will be cherished for generations to come. These will be stories shared in family get-togethers, jokes laughed about in friendly gatherings, traditions passed onto future generations, love that will sparkle up a somber day so many decades later.....
So my photos are perfectly imperfect... just like all of you!!
I stay in Bangalore with my lovely wife and my little daughter. I am from Kolkata (yes, I am a Bengali) and I often visit over there either to meet my parents or to shoot. I travel across places to cover weddings and I love it. For outstations, my clients bear the travel cost.
I have been shooting wedding since 2011, under my brand (Photographians).
I grown up following the Magnum and National Geographic photographers. My photography style is heavily influenced by documentary photography and street photography. With my picture I seek the "how" over "what". I focus on capturing the real moments and emotions. Overall I want the couples to enjoy their wedding day, in the complete process of my photography.
My typical wedding package is 12 hours of photographic coverage by myself along with an equally talented second photographer. I always include a beautiful handcrafted wedding album of 40 pages and share carefully chosen and edited high resolution images in the secured cloud and an online gallery of same images for showcasing and sharing with friends and family. The cost of my service starts from 1400 USD (~1Lakh Indian Rupees).
I always prefer to meet you in my home. I do have studio set up at my home. It is always easy to share my story, show my work, show you different albums, giving you some ideas, brew some tea and of course learn all about you and the wedding! If that is not possible, I am very happy to meet you over Skype.
I am an Electronics Engineer. I have been working in software as a technical architect. I learnt photography from multiple workshops, and reading tons of photo books. I do have good collection of books that really helped me to find my photographic voice.
