Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far. I am a passionate photographer and accidentally an aeronautical engineering graduate. My dad was into wildlife photography so it was always there in my blood but took me 22 years to realise it. My passion is to travel to every nook and corner of the world and when my legs fail, settle down back in my village and teach photography. Thank you for this short interview, its things like this that keeps me motivated :) What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field? I am proud to say i am self made ( well youtube was my personal tutor for years), my goal is to become the best travel/fashion photographer of my time and then settle down to a field of teaching. How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements? I am a very extrovert person, friendly but then I don't undersell my self. I am very on the face kinda guy, I am upfront about everything and then I discuss with the client from the moment he or she agrees to hire me till the final click is edited. I am always open to suggestions cause most of my best works have be done by my clients eyes and it turned out better than I expected. If you had to do it over again, what would you change? Not to sound overly proud, but I wouldn't change anything :) Who is your hero, and how have they helped you get to where you are? Dad, his stories as a wildlife photographer from childhood fascinated me but then I never new I had a flare for photography till I join for my aeronautical tech, well and then afterwards i fell in love with my camera and couldn't stop myself from learning more. How important are creative education courses? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful? I have only went for a one day class to learn the basics of camera till now. Creative course's I am not so sure about it, cause I believe creativity depends on your char and how willing you are to patiently research about other peoples works, people who are better than you, and then adding yourself to that picture. Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry? Success wont come overnight for sure.
