I’ve always been rather quiet and shy and so for me to pursue a career in which I’m expected to not only interact with strangers but also make them feel comfortable enough to share a part of their life’s story with me was a huge step outside my comfort zone.

I work primarily as a documentary filmmaker at Srishti Films, and I absolutely love my job. However, my passion will always lie in photography, which I pursue on the side literally any opportunity I get. I also work as a graphic designer and am only now getting my toes wet in the vast dimension of motion graphics. I graduated from the Srishti Institute of Art and Design and it has now been a year since I graduated. I never formally studied film during my time in college but because of my interest in photography, it paved a way to me pursuing this as a career.

Srishti gave me a strong foundation to stand on and the opportunity to explore these multiple fields and the various aspects of design during the course of my 4 years. It was here that I was in the midst of some extremely talented artists and designers, and friends which turned into family (who also became subjects in my shoots), which really pushed my creative boundaries. Having done my Higher Secondary Education in Science from St. Xavier’s College in Mumbai, which was a huge leap for me to take, jumping into the world or art and design, but it just felt right at the time. This came as quite a shock to my parents initially, but have been very supportive of all of my decisions thereafter, and there isn’t a day I regret making this one.

I’ve really grown as a person in the past year, meeting new people, experiencing new cultures,  and exploring some of the most rural parts of India. It has opened my eyes to seeing our country and all its diversity in a different light, and truly appreciating and being grateful for the smaller things in life. This is only the beginning of a long journey and I can’t wait to see where this path leads me to in the future.
