It's not the photographer who makes the picture, but the person being photographed.

Hello there! Thank you for visiting my website! My name is Abhishek and I am a photographer, husband and a believer. Photography didn't 'happen' to me after picking up my dad’s camera when I was eight. Neither was I a technical genius who always knew what aperture to use by just sticking my hand out in the light. But since childhood I have been convinced and even obsessed with the power of images and the influence it can have our world... Like a wave of borrowed experiences from the master visionary himself... hitting me over and over again. After doing my college education in Mass Communications and filmmaking and experiencing a few detours along the way, I started my professional career in photography keeping a focus on photojournalism, documentary, travel, editorial, humanitarian and social issues. The journey has been great. Still learning and still being fascinated by the two dimensional world of reality.
