Q1. How did your career journey start? Or Who/What inspired you to start this business/ entrepreneurship?

I used to explore little things which gave me pleasure from my early childhood. I have been fascinated with nature, landscapes and night since my childhood. More attracted towards clicking pictures of wildlife. Day by day my hobby of photography increased and turned out as my profession. I still remember my first earning of Rs. 10/- when I clicked one of my friend's picture. One of my fellow mates from Gwalior was my inspiration at that time. I belong to a creative-minded family. They all supported me in all my thick and thin. In 2019, my family gifted me a DSLR as a New Year gift or I can say my birthday gift. Little by little I began to build my career in Photography & Cinematography. 

Q2. Kindly share some information about your Business, products and services here. Also, mention your USP if any.

I'm a Professional Event & Commercial Photographer. We also create creative videos. Events include weddings, social events and private parties. Regarding commercial photography, We also work with Restaurants, Real Estate, Apparels, Cosmetics, Jewellery brands etc. Cinematography as well as Editing is my USP. Also I'm a passionate creative videos creator.

Q3. What kind of challenges did you face while starting/doing business?

There were times when my bank account was empty as there was no work for a continuous few months. But all I did was kept working & exploring.

Q4. Do share with our readers about your discovery period when you were facing difficulties in your business?

So, during that tough period I didn't give up on myself and my faith in my skills. The first thing I did was watch other people do different kinds of things. I gained some motivation and discovered that the more I shoot the more I fail, and the more I fail, the more I learn. I also realised that Photography is more than just taking pictures, it's a never ending process of self-discovery, accomplishments, and failures. It taught me to never give up on my dreams, no matter how crazy they seem.

Q5. Share with our readers about your experiment period after the discovery period?

There were also times where we worked in spite of the unfavorable location, climate or an event. After watching & listening to various talented people, gained a lot of knowledge from them and before practising things practically, my theory was fully completed on how to use lights, angles and camera positioning during capturing shots & creating videos. Later, I got the first call from a Gwalior based clothing brand where I had to work professionally with full setup for a photoshoot in a Palace in Gwalior. This was the chance for me to explore outside my hometown, Joura. Fortunately, after living in Gwalior, I received many more projects in Photography related to Bridal Shoot, Model Shoot, Commercial Shoot, Real Estate Shoot, Restaurant/Hotel Shoot and many more in Cinematography as well.

Q6. What are your future plans? Or now what is your vision for the next five years?

I see myself continuing to challenge myself in terms of using Photography & Cinematography as my future profession on an extent. I have also dreamt of having my own Photography/Cinematography Company and also want to shoot short films, films, series in a way of direction. 

Q7. How would you advise/suggest new entrepreneurs who want to start & sustain in business?

If you want to succeed in your life, you must stay true to who you are. Also,instead of just telling your family about what you want to do, do it and show it to them. This would help them to trust your skills and they will encourage you to move ahead in your career. No one can do it better than yourself. The only competition you have is yourself and being the best you could be. Don't waste your energy focusing on someone else's dreams, go out and conquer yours. So, Invest on your imaginations.
