Putting one foot in front of the other

I wasn’t one of those kids who always knew what they wanted to do when they grew up. I went through all the usual phases and obsessions, but the vast portion of my interest concerned archeology. An elective film course in Tata institute of social science, Mumbai put me on the path and I found that the deeper I got into it, the more I liked it. My passion for cinematography developed quickly from there.

After graduation I worked as an assistant steady cam operator, Electro while attending film school in my free time. I also shot quite a few student films and what-have-you, but my real education began when I gained entry to Belgian film industry. I was fortunate to work with some of the best cinematographers , gaffers from there it was just a matter of being tenacious and putting one foot in front of the other.
