Tell us a little about yourself and what inspired you to take up photography?
I’m an artiste and I have always been passionate and drawn towards creative works like painting and sculpting from a very young age. I started documenting all my work by taking photographs of it and somehow that was the beginning of my photography journey. It did not happen overnight, but I have definitely come a long way from what I thought was a hobby initially.
How long have you been doing photography professionally?
My first wedding photography was in the year 2006, so a little more than 10 years.
Since you specialize in wedding photography, tell us which wedding was the most memorable for you?
I have shot over a 100 weddings till date and every single one has been unique and interesting in their own way. Therefore, each wedding has been quite memorable and a learning experience for me.
What are the challenges of being a photographer?
Nagaland is not a cosmopolitan State and photography as a professional career is still in its infancy. Besides that, due to lack of art industries here, photography is mostly forced to be confined to weddings and we cannot broaden our zone and that has been one of the many challenges that I have faced.
One photographer that you look up to?
I have always looked up to my friend, Rokovor from Nagaland
