I make portraits of so many people round the year. From corporate clients, newborn, couples, families, artists... The list goes on.

But, the person who I love to photograph the most is my daughter - Ruhani. And at the moment when I photograph her, I am no more a photographer. I become dadagrapher( http://buff.ly/2oTkOi7 ).

My perspective changes. I am not sure if at that moment I see through the lens from the perspective of a portrait photographer only. I guess I am seeing, thinking, as a father, as a parent too.

Am I being critical? Am I being partial?

Am I making her portrait? Or is it me there?
Am I telling her story? Or am I trying to interpret our relationship? Or am I exploring every parent-child relationship?

What are all these visuals?

I am still finding answers to my question.

At the moment, it appears best as chronicling our lives together.

Photographs have served well as fine instruments to chronicle personal and world history. Maybe, the true value of using photographs for this purpose emerges when the subjects age and the pictures fade.

Behind the scenes from a recent #corporate portrait shoot held in #Bengaluru city for a popular travel company in India. They have a cool workplace in the city.

I actually use their app once in a while for booking flight tickets and hotels.

Guess the name of the company?

A lot of my #Non-profit sector or #NGO clients are organizations that work with children of different abilities or #children from the marginalized sections of the social spectrum. Here is an organization that strives to provide #education and skills to a section of children who otherwise have no access to any of it.
