Shiva SS     | Fashion Celebrity Photographer


1) How you started your photography?

I never thought that I will take up photography as my career as it was just my hidden hobby from childhood.


I got my first camera when I was in 11th standard as a gift from a tourist in Goa. From then onwards, I have started clicking using Konica reel.


I wished to become an entrepreneur. After completing my 12th standard, I have started my own business. At that point of time, I used to have good camera phones that have helped me to continue my passion. I used to take many pictures and sent them to various newspapers and magazines.


Since 2009, I have concentrated my focus more towards photography as my business was not doing well. Then, I was relocated from Bangalore to Hyderabad. In 2010, I started  attending few online workshop and sessions and attended few photo-walks/ talks. I learned a lot from a brand setup in Hyderabad and it helped me in enriching my skills and made more confident.


In 2012, I happened to join an IT company based in Dubai as Sales Manager. Apart from my job  I use to have some free time. So in order to  utiize my free time more fruitfully, I  applied for a part time photographer’s job for a local Bollywood magazine. I gained practical experience and learned the intricacies of photography by covering live shows, press meets and shooting celebrities across the glamorous world of Bollywood.

Attended many fashion photography sessions and at times did wedding photography as well.

2) What is the role of new technology and medium in photography?


Ans: The latest technology in photography had paved the way for many discoveries. The advanced state-of-art technology in photography is doing wonders and I’m in favour of this radical shift.

The biggest role of technology in the medium of photography made a photographer’s life easy. Even a novice photographer can step into the realm of photography with great confidence with the given technological innovations. All you need is to have a great passion and an eye to capture the right moment.


As everything is available on online nowadays, the dearth of inspiration and motivation can be achieved with ease. The present day technology in the publishing industry of photography has taken diverse shapes and doing miracles drawing the attention of the onlooker.

3) Anything specific you want to share with people?


Ans: When it comes learning anything in this world, it is a never ending process. This applies to photography also. One has to keep on updating with the trends and face new challenges to widen oneself. The exposure to the real-time photo shoots will enhance the latent skills in us. In a way, regular participation in photo walks/workshops will become a backbone to strengthen the skills of the photographer. The cutting edge of technology mixed with talent and hard work will certainly create ripples in the world of photography.

4) What gives you the motivation to go out and click despite having busy schedule ongoing medical conditions?


Ans: I am a self-motivated person. I am confident of myself in all situations of life. What ever I do, I do it with 100% dedication. I have turned my passion for photography into a career. Every click makes more confident and gives strength to reach newer heights in my life. Every new assignment is a challenge and I explore it by meeting new people, places, situations, and circumstances.


When I shoot continuously, I will take a break for 10 minutes and drink a lot of water and juices to keep me alert and fit.

About Pushkar Fair

The sprawling annual festivities of the 100 year old Pushkar Mela through its dramatic collage of diversified pictures, mirrors the vibrancy of the gracious state of Rajasthan. It is celebrated for five days from the Kartik ekadashi to Kartik Poornima, the full moon day of Kartik (October–November) in Hindu calendar. The full moon day is the main day and the day, according to legend, when the Hindu god Brahma sprung up the Pushkar Lake, thus numerous people swim in its sacred waters. This iconic fair attracts thousands of livestock and almost a million tourists including many from across the world.

Then & Now

The original intention behind the Pushkar Camel Fair was to attract local camel and cattle traders to do business during the holy Kartik Purnima festival. Today the Pushkar Mela creates a stir among travellers with its awe-inspiring celebrations at this grand event cherished with life oozing activities, cultural and musical events, thrilling camel safari tours and a stay in the traditional yet modern camps. Images of silver bells making heart pleasing jingles, animals walking over sparkling sand dunes and beautifully decked up camels with their owners sitting on their backs has become the most fascinating norm at this stunning cultural retreat. A huge carnival is held, with an array of musicians, magicians, dancers, acrobats, snake charmers and carousel rides to entertain the crowd. The grand occasion of the Pushkar Mela is definitely a priceless treat for those who wish to eye the vibrant culture and traditions of Rajasthan.
