I am an Editorial and Commercial photographer working in Canada and India. 

My journey in photography began when I was studying Journalism at Sophia College for Women, Mumbai. I started experimenting with the camera and got a diploma in Advanced Photography from the National Institute of Photography (Mumbai). After my undergraduate degree, I started working with Teach for India, where I taught 30, 5th grade students. This experience taught me a lot and even though I didn't do as well as I thought I would, it was a turning point in my life. I decided I wanted to pursue Photojournalism as a postgraduate degree. And that's when I found Loyalist College in Belleville, Ontario (Canada) - which is where I truly understood visual communication through photography, video and writing. 

I graduated from Loyalist College in March, 2017 and then came back to India to intern as a photojournalist with The Hindu, in Chennai (India). After the internship, I got an offer from The Northern Light in Bathurst, New Brunswick (Canada), which is a part of the Telegraph Journal, with it's headquarters in Saint John, New Brunswick. I took the contract job, which lasted 5 months and worked at the weekly community newspaper in a city of 10,000 people in the beautiful Chaleur region. 

Working for the newspaper aided in other employment opportunities within the city. I worked as a freelance writer for the Special Sections of Brunswick News and simultaneously was being trained in videography (editing and shooting) by Adam Hodnett, at Folk Media Communications. I started working commercially during this time, shooting for the Maple Syrup Association alongside Adam and working on videos for Chaleur Tourism. 

In March, I sought out full time employment, and worked as a Digital Marketing Specialist with Websolutions.ca, until July 2018. Here I had completely switched to commercial work, where I handled social media accounts for a number of clients, ranging from dealerships, tourism to restaurants. I was writing content for them as well as taking photographs - Food, Industrial, Architecture, Portraits.

Currently, I am travelling with stops in Dubai and then will be back in India for a couple of months, where I will be freelancing editorially and commercially until November.
