Here we present to you his Photo Story Strokes Of Africa in his own words.

Why is Africa is a dream destination for photography? Is it because of the Big 5? I believe that its a no brainer. What makes Africa special is light and the ample amount of opportunities you have as a photographer to play around with it. The Savannah is one of the few natural spectacles of the world which gifts you with stunning light. The real challenge for photographers is to understand and read this light and chase it rather than species and subjects.

Over the past 6 years I have spent more than 150 days in varied forests of East Africa. From the vast stretches of grasslands in Masai Mara to the wooded forests of Nakuru and the dusty scapes of Amboseli – photographing in Africa gives you the opportunities to experiment and definitely polishes your skills.
Here is a small body of work from East Africa where dust and light have been used to create images from the land of endless photo opportunities.
