I am Pratyush Pandya.
I admit I am a SPORTS and POLITICS junkie; I watch PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION results just as passionately as the NBA PLAYOFFS or the WORLD SERIES. A Certified Public Accountant by profession, I am also an avid karaoke singer.
But my greatest passion, unequivocally, is PHOTOGRAPHY. Unlike some who say they were photographers from early on, I discovered the zest for it late in comparison. However, it continues to light my fire, and it has certainly been a rewarding PROCESS OF SELF-DISCOVERY along the way.
I picked up my first dSLR camera, a Canon 30D, in 2007 without any pretense, and haven’t looked back. I didn’t go looking for it; photography found me.
I now shoot with a couple of MIRRORLESS cameras - Fujifilm X-T2 and Sony A7R II - and a mix of Fuji and Sony/Zeiss/Voigtländer lenses.
I predominantly shoot in JOURNALISTIC form, especially when it comes to lifestyle PORTRAITS or documentary TRAVEL/LANDSCAPES. I am a visual STORY-TELLER.
I absolutely love photographing PEOPLE and PLACES as they interact.
..and that is my story.
