Pooja Rajput | Travel Photographer and Enthusiast | Seasoned biker
“I don’t photograph subjects. I photograph the way they make me feel.”
Pooja Rajput is a photographer and a seasoned biker, being an extreme adventure enthusiast my camera goes along on with me on my motorcycle. Clicking varied facets of life mainly comprising of aerial, travel, landscapes, portraits, and fashion is what I do. My style consists of colorful and energetic imagery.
The urge to satisfy ones artistic hunger its essential to create thus my photographic journey started with finding a visual medium in photography. I picked up photography as a hobby. Slowly the hobby turned into a passion which now has become an integral part of my life.
My achievements as a photographer includes honourable mentions in the International Photography Awards 2015 & 2016, publications in worldwide photography magazines like Lonely Planet, Asian photography to name a few. My pictures have been displayed at the international exhibitions like Nicefoto : an international celebration of amateur photography.
I have also photographed for the Book “Navy in the 21 century “released by the Honourable President of India, the Maritime Heritage of India 2016 released by the Honourable Prime Minister and various publications in the International Fleet Review 2016.
In my opinion the new age comes with new responsibilities. This era of digital photography has made it very convenient for everyone to go and photograph in a way which is very welcoming and affordable but out of these only few qualify as true photographers and artists who have the vision and the technical know how and dedicate their time to the art. Like any art requires practice so does photography and one tends to get better with the right vision. Taking on constructive criticism about your work is a part of learning process and should be taken in the right stride. Not obtaining right feedback is the mistake what most newbie’s make. The harsher your mentor is the better you will get should always be kept in the mind. Learning photography is a continuous process and the day you feel you have learnt all about photography means your decline will start from their. One should always be open about gaining knowledge from fellow photographers and seniors.
My otherwise busy schedule and the nature of job keeps me occupied but the urge to create and bring home stories which otherwise were untold keeps me going. The biggest challenge which I face is visiting the same place or event and yet come back with different set of images. The challenge to create something different every time keeps me going. The feeling of creating something new gives me a sense of achievement and is soul satisfying.
