A Change!

After having been a photographer for over 10 years and having made what turned out to be a major decision of moving to Dubai to be a photographer, I feel another change is needed.

I moved to Dubai in 2004 until when I was in Bombay shooting a fair bit for myself and totally not enough for money! The move to Dubai also enforced a switch to digital photography. A screwed up first shoot on a Nikon D1X, pushed me to figure out this digital thing. Since then, it feels like thats all I have been doing. I feel I have not done enough of my own work and the development of my work has been technical more than anything else.

Now it's time for more changes. I have to buckle down and do much more of my own work..more photography for no money! I have realised that I only shoot when I am being paid to do so and I need to change that. I need to rediscover why I became a photographer in the first place. Also, I want to work on my portfolio and figure out what my 'vision' is. The only way to do that is to keep shooting, shooting, shooting. I want to be eventually be paid to bring that vision to assignments.
This blog is a part of the changes I want to make. I will try to publicly document(via this blog) how I try to make these changes. The blog will carry lots of photography, good and bad, and lots of random thoughts...
More soon... in the meanwhile here is the great Dan Winters on his approach to image making..

and some thoughts on his portrait photography method
