Though photography was my passion since childhood, but I took up it as a profession very late in my life i.e only after completing my regular engagement with Indian Air Force in 2014. I did a certificate course in photography along with Diploma in video editing from NBA group of Institutions, New Delhi. Learnt photography there under the tutelage of Mr Roop Kumar Sharma, my first photography guru. Later I was greatly influenced by Mr Munish Khanna , an ace photographer and my photography mentor while doing a complete photography course at Munish Khanna Academy, New-Delhi and later working with him in various projects in different genre of photography.
My work has been recognized and awarded at Delhi CG Animation Award and Maya Academy of Advance Cinematic inter campus competition during my advance course in Editing and compositing at MAAC South Extension, New-Delhi. After working couple of years as a freelance photographer in various projects with different brands, I later established my own studio set up with the help of some professionally competent friends in Bhubaneswar, the capital city of odisha in Eastern part of India under the name SJ Creative Studio, which provides complete photography solutions and has PAN India and across the globe operations in collaborations with reliable channel partners in different cities and countries.
