Brief Profile: A person with a background in Political Science (i.e. an honours degree holder in Politocal Science), photography has been my hobby since very long. However, in recent times it has turned into a passion-especially since 2015 when I started my journey in the world of photography. In my early days as a photographer, I was more focused on taking pictures. However, as time has progressed, my inclination has shifted towards making pictures through my lenses. In my work, I have always tried to be a visual storyteller, capturing various finer nuances of our surroundings in an aesthetic manner, through my lenses.Achievements: I have achieved the following in the last seven years-• Excellence of FIP (Federation of indian Photography)EFIP.• Excellence of FIAP (Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique) from France/EFIAP• GPU-CRI and title distinction Aphrodite from Global Photographic Union• Hon.

The picture is about reflection and shadow on water. The reflection of trees which has created a texture and the shadow of people, have together created a story. Overall the frame was very attractive which also attracted me to shoot.
