I was born in Jamshedpur, India in 1985. Right from my childhood, I was fascinated with the camera. I remember spending countless hours looking through the view finder and playing with the focus ring, even when the camera had no film in it.
Life naturally took me to Mumbai, the heart of the Indian film industry (Bollywood). I worked there as a DOP for over ten years. I experienced the entire spectrum, from small budget passion projects to multimillion A-list productions. Apart from lighting a set, I have vast camera operation experience as well. It’s given me an additional perspective into lensing and cinematography. The knowledge helps me add an extra layer to create unique looking images.
In 2019, an amazing twist of fate caused me to move base to Vancouver. Since then, I’ve been working and contributing to productions that sign with the ICG 669.
