As an engineering consultant my work entails a fair bit of travel – both within the country and outside. On work, my travel schedule is invariably packed to the gills – not allowing time for any kind of detour. The only other option would be a planned photography excursion to a place I always wanted to visit – one example here is my week long trip to Kenya, to capture the annual migration of animals in the Maasai Mara.

Travel is about the path you will take that will ultimately define your journey – whether it’s going somewhere that is only two-hours away, or a destination halfway across the world. Travel is also about trying something new – especially if you can manage to escape from the predictable routines of everyday life. Traveling therefore gives you something different to experience, and can be like a breath of fresh air.

To me, travel also means spending the day in a new city and exploring all of its history, its museums and parks. It brings in the magic of spontaneous adventure and participation in activities that you normally would not have the time for.

Q&A – November 2018

This time we talk to another very interesting travel photographer – and strangely, he’s an extremely private person – shoots for himself. Though he’s gone as far as being seen selectively on social media – “This is only to obtain feedback on my photography,” he says.

There’s one question we asked him that we have asked many people, and his response made the most sense to me. Here’s an excerpt:

“If the brief is to travel as a tourist (visiting new places of tourist interest) I would prefer to do it with family and friends. The atmosphere is always full of fun during the journey, and the conversations punctuated with non-stop excitement. If I am travelling with only photography in mind, I would prefer to be a solo-traveler. For one thing, you can make your own plans – for another, you can avoid group itineraries, and rushing through your day.”
