Hi, I am Vivek and I am a photographer from Sydney, Australia. I’ve been taking photos over a few years now. I first bought my camera to take pictures for a community based events website ( www.kgarira.com ) that I run for my Nepali community living here in Australia. Even before I bought my first SLR, I used to go parties and nightclubs with my digital camera and take pictures of people dancing and couple and beautiful girls and post in my site. One day when I was browsing my site, I saw a comment on one of the photos that said, ” Such a good website but the photo qualities and crap”. I found it funny but at the same time concerned what the person had said cause it made perfect sense. If people want their photos posted, they want good photos posted, they want photos that look different than what even they capture.
Next morning, I gathered my friends and we went shopping. I think I dragged my friends along with me for over 4 hours trying to find a camera that would fit my budget. My first ever camera was on my hand, the allmighty Canon 450D. I bought this camera with a twin lens kit. Now equipped with a more sophisticated camera 🙂 , the photos that I getting were amazing. At first, I was taking photos for my site and later I found I was taking photos for myself. My love for photography had begun.
I absolutely love photographing people. I love every aspect of it and I get a thrill out of directing and getting results that I have in my head. I love taking portraits of people and recently, I have been drawn more towards the artistic approach. One of my inspiration and a photographer whom I idolize is Brook Shaden. I love her work and follow her blog all the time. I love how easily she can compose a photo and capture it perfectly. Through her teaching, I have learn’t that the biggest part of photography was how one composes the photo in the mind’s eye and then takes all the care to bring that vision out onto paper. I cannot talk about her enough.
Recently I have upgraded to a Nikon and I have found my peace with Nikon. I absolutely love my new camera and I will be posting lots of photos.
Well, I hope you guys will enjoy looking at my photos as much as I enjoy creating them. Thank you all for stopping by. Please leave your comments and feedbacks which means a lot to me.
