  • Someone asked me the other day, how this year has been for me. This year has been amazing! I told myself that I am going to fight my fear of public speaking, and I did. I have given so many speeches this year that I feel way more confident than ever, about speaking to a crowd. I'm not saying I became a master at it, but I am at a better position now than ever before. I've grown from having 13k followers to over 40k, organically! I've taken up so many personal projects and as a team we brought many of them to life and we are still working on many! I told myself that I will read a book at least for 30mins a day and that really brought a great change in my reading habits! I'm reading so many books now and I love it! I worked on my "30 Days Challenge" to bring consistency into a lot of things and I love how many people took it up, to personally work on themselves! It humbles me so much to know that I inspired people to do that! Coming closer to the end of the year, I am now working on something called a "Focused hour" where I sit focused, away from phones and distractions, to get a particular work done within a fixed amount of time! Its going great and I feel everyone should try it! The point is, spend a little focused time, to get a lot of work done. There are more things to tick off, from the to do list of the year, and I am more than excited to meet my goals in person and shake a firm hand, achieving every single one of them!

  • What do you see when you recollect a memory or think of somebody? You see something in your mind - a visual - a picture. No matter what you imagine, its always a series of pictures in a train of thought. Did you ever think about what pictures people have in their mind when they think about you? How do you want them to perceive you? In today's world, a lot of who you are as a person is assumed from your visual identity on social media and other public platforms. What do you choose to present yourself as? As musicians, its easy to use pictures from concerts. But do they convey who you are as a person? Do they convey that you are committed and love your craft? Imagine writing a short summery that narrates about who you are and what you do. What if you can put all of that summary, into just one picture? Create a visual identity that defines you. Create the memory that you want people to see when they think of you.

  • Shooting with a “Kanjira” as their instruments was, without a doubt, the most difficult so far. Its an instrument so small and it get tricky very quickly to come up with poses with it! I sat with the team and we made a mood board on paper, about what pictures to shoot and this was the first. This is a composite of individual shots. It sounds easy but it was challenging. We had to make sure that everyone were in the same focal lengths and same pose (more or less) and get it right! The mood board for this whole shoot had a lot of experiments and the process was amazing!

  • So @gowthambharadwaj came in with a mic instead of a Tampura, to get his portraits clicked. He said, "I thought many singers have used Tampura so I brought my mic instead. Maybe it will be different I felt. I don't know if it will be useful.. but I just got it!" Almost instantly, we both knew, at this point, that we had to go and shoot different portraits, compared to what we did before. It was super fun! We enjoyed the whole shoot and made some really interesting shots! This is just about one of them!

Something I understood through shooting musicians is that it is really really challenging to shoot with instruments that are very small. You don't have a lot of beautiful patterns to show, not a lot of poses to do with something so small - its just a huge restriction in your way to create amazing pictures. The question, however, is how can you look beyond the restrictions. This picture just goes to tell me again that it is in the attempt of going around the restrictions that we stumble upon interesting pictures!

  • This was one of the last pictures we shot. I just thought of trying a shot where she was holding her instrument closely and after trying a couple of poses, we landed on this. Looking back now, I see that this has become a series of its own - musicians embracing their instruments. I love how all of these pictures turned out. The way they hold the instrument itself tells a story. I think we shouldn't sweat a lot thinking about the goal and purpose of the pictures. Just keep shooting and you may later stumble upon something, out of that process. Take your camera and just let your thoughts flow.

  • I was once asked, “How to train yourself to look for opportunities?” and I feel, the answer lies in finding out what is that thing, that excites you? For me, solving problems is exciting. I want to fix things when there is something wrong, some stupidity I see around, anything that I feel can be improved. Even if it is something not related to me, I want to go fix that. That is how I get high. That excites me. You should see what excites you and do whatever that is. When one chooses to run after that excitement, you become obsessed with it. When you have an obsession, you will see opportunities in every direction.

  • Going through all the pictures from the Musicians series, I realised there’s a similar picture with every artist - a picture of them embracing their instrument. Some thought or the other always led to one such pictures. For example, over here, on seeing the number of flutes he had, we wanted to make one picture where he’s holding them all. With no struggle of thought, we came up with this very instinctively! I love how intimate and real these pictures feel!

His love for travelling took him to places, not only outside the country but necessarily back to his roots where he discovered the endless treasure hidden in the state of Tamil Nadu. The rich culture, the hardworking people, the pristine nature, the authentic food, and so much more caught him in a spell, and hence born was DISCOVER TAMIL NADU, an initiative to document Tamil Nadu in a visually appealing way to let the world know its abundance.
