Being a photographer his challenge was to create something different from other photographers in India. He wanted to do something what other photographers failed to do or never thought of doing. He was deeply connected to fitness since his childhood and photography since college days. He combined Fitness and Photography together and formed Fitness Photography. There was not even a single fitness photographer in the country when he initiated Fitness Photography in India from Delhi. He knew that Fitness Industry has an immense growth in India and people are getting concerned about their health and physique. Earlier a fitness model or a bodybuilder used to have their portfolio from a Fashion Photographer but somewhere a fashion photographer failed to fulfill their expectations because they focus more on looks than fitness.
His strength is editing skills and being the first comer He has a huge network in Fitness Industry around India. Also, He click inside Gym’s rather than a Studio which helps a Fitness Model or a bodybuilder to pump their body and look better.
He had a basic entry level DSLR to start with. He had no studio. He did some 15-20 Fitness Photoshoots in outdoor location and charged a basic amount of Rs. 2000-4000 initially which helped him getting some equipments. Gradually, he took outdoor shoots to indoor inside gym and people loved it. They started connecting him from Social media platform because he displayed his work in front of them.
