Photo Journalism

Often, a single still image or a series of images is the best way to tell a story. Immersing myself in the stream of consciousness of the moment, letting them unfold unfold and making slices of time, that's my drive.

Photo Journalism

Documentary Films

As a documentary film maker, based in India, passionate about that dig deep into human nature and the heart of the characters, I’ve worked for international TV and production houses on stories.

Video Journalism

Film Editing

A keen eye and the ability to sift through hours of rushes to cull out the heart of the narrative - aesthetically, on time and on budget, working with me as your film editor expect to have a true collaborator on your project.

Video Editor

storytelling that reaches out to the heart of audiences

A photojournalist, documentary film maker and editor based in India, I am passionate about human stories with emotion, equally at home in the remote villages of rural India, the bustling metropolis or my quiet edit suite.

A Passion for Storytelling

I've filmed in remote villages in the poorest districts of India (like Mewat in the north) and in the metropolis of Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore and have developed a deep understanding of and, more importantly, sensitivity for the widely diverse cultures and people of India.
With experience working for international TV and organisations, I offer a global perspective while being true to the emotions of the characters in my stories.
I have worked in all areas of filmmaking. From research, field interviews and camera work. Working solo, I am able to produce a features for projects requiring a small footprint – where subjects need to be put at ease, quick turnaround projects.
I also specialise in documentary film editing projects and collaborate with filmmakers, sometimes remotely.
This site will give you an idea of my style and areas of work. From features for television to documentaries and commercial spots for TV, I cannot turn down a good story! Do get in touch to talk about your specific project or collaboration. I don’t bite! Promise 🙂
