I am often asked how did Breaking Rules come about. To begin with let me tell you that I am quite a rule breaker myself! So, while the rule or the “normal” thing to do , was to sit at home and laze around on a Sunday, I wanted to do something productive. Some of my friends who were photography enthusiasts were keen on learning the basics, to take better pictures during vacations or family gatherings and the likes. They wanted to me to start teaching photography. Though a little sceptical at first, I agreed to share what I have learnt over the years in my profession, and since then there has been no looking back.
I truly believe that photography is something that you cannot learn within the four walls of a classroom, so we began shooting, in different locations across the city of Bombay. Me and my fellow rule breakers have shot pictures at beaches, bustling markets, salt pans, film sets and even on a local train. Every week we go to a different location and we shoot. The idea is to find the extraordinary within the ordinary. All you have to do is seek and you will find! As Ansel Adams said ” You don’t take a picture, you make it!”
In my workshops, not only will you learn the basics of photography, you will also learn the basics of editing your images. Just like a professional photographer, you will be able to shoot and work on your images yourself. Give me five Sundays and I can tell you one thing for sure, you and your camera will be inseparable!
