Into the photography business since early childhood assisting my father who was a professional photographer running a studio in Imphal, Manipur. Medium format cameras (Rolleiflex, Richomatic, Yashica - Twin Lens Reflex cameras were in vogue with black & white 120mm roll films and then colour roll films gradually. Soon 35 mm SLR cameras were used. Today, digital medium completely took over with a little bit of film photography time to time. Since I was into the business, general photography was the order of the day like portraiture, group photos, product shots, events, functions, ceremonies, wedding, children, macros, outdoor assignments, interiors, copying, studio photography, etc. In the meantime, in 1990, got a job in the Central Government of India, Ministry of MSME. Thus, I have to manage my time to devote to two jobs, which surprisingly, I am enjoying. However, real passion for photography lies in landscapes, nature, abstracts, portraiture, street, documentation and photojournalism. Really enjoy action photography, low light photography, long exposures, panoramas and HDR.
