My life’s journey is full of failures, desires and problems, and ends with prominent success. It was not easy for a boy from a middle-class family to touch new heights, but it wasn’t impossible either. This venture of mine would not have been possible without the support and blessings of my family, since my journey is full of rocks and stones.
The desire to become a renowned artist started when my father left me all alone in this chaotic world. My family never forced me to do a 9 to 5 job for livelihood, but they always expected something big from me. After completing Class 10, I started doing theatre as it was my childhood dream to become a theatre artist. But you all must know that some situations force you to forget about your dreams, and that’s what happened with me as well.
Nevertheless, my theatre days have taught me a lot about everything. As I already mentioned earlier that my family condition was not well, to pay for my higher studies, I used to do part-time jobs after college and theatre. Each passing day, this routine became more and more hectic for me, but somehow, I managed myself and my time well for my studies, theatre and my job.
Since I was doing well at theatre, I went to Mumbai right after my graduation with a big dream, and explore the City of Dreams, with its films and slums. There also, I was able to get work and was in the process of learning, but somehow, in 2016, all my dreams shattered. Again, I was back to where I’d started. My father had passed away and I had to go back home since I was burdened with the responsibility of my family and most importantly, my mother. I was unstable, there was no job for me back home, and I was all alone with no support. All these things used to bring me down, but I never lost hope in myself.
With God’s grace, I got a job in 2016 itself. I was hired to manage photography at my friend’s sister’s wedding. But again, for that one success I accomplished, I had to go through thousands of problems. For videography, I managed to find a videographer, and for photography, I hired someone else along with me. Everything was going good till halfway, when I got ditched by the other photographer. I wasn’t carrying any equipment with me. Within half an hour, I somehow managed to get a camera and started clicking photos on auto mode. After we wrapped up, I wasn’t expecting a good review for my photographs, but they were very much liked by everyone. The thing everyone mentioned about my photographs was that they captured emotions beautifully. And this is how my journey of starting Photowale began.
Eventually, I started getting paid for my photography. Later, I also learn editing along with my photography skills. The sudden idea of setting up a company came to my mind, and with a catchy name, Photowale, I started this journey. As time passed, many renowned and skilled professionals got added to my team, and our company has since been touching new heights, all because of these photographs.
We have done portfolio shoots of celebrities including Sanjay Mishra, Pankaj Jha and Neetu Chandra, as well as captured wedding memories of our proud celebrities from Bihar including Deepali Sahay and Aishwarya Nigam. As the first and foremost wedding studio of Patna, we have shot the international pre-wedding of the well-known artist Amit Dhawal.
We not only work on wedding themes, but also on social issues including child molestation, discrimination faced by transgender people, and more. We always try to spread awareness through our pictures and clicks.
