Rural Roots in Southern India

My Scholarship entry - Rural roots in Southern India

India | Monday, 14 January 2013 | 5 photos


In school, I study mechanical engineering, but my real passions are with travel and photography. I love being immersed in the unknown, seeing everything with fresh eyes, and of course trying to capture everything with photography –from nature and animals to bustling towns, hidden markets, and all of the people along the way. Everything and everyone has a story to tell and I believe that a major job of photographers is to capture those stories and let others see things in a new perspective.

I have pursued photography as a hobby for a number of years now. In addition to capturing stories and memories both in my travels and at home, I volunteer at a local animal shelter, taking pictures of the animals so they have a better chance of being adopted. So far, I am completely self taught but I am ready to go to the next level and would embrace the chance to learn from an expert such as Jason. While my studies often put my photography on hold temporarily, it is a big dream of mine to take the leap of faith and pursue photography on a more professional level and I would love more than anything to work for National Geographic someday. Please help me realize that dream.
