Rendezvous with Fellow Photographers

Just a few days back, a couple of photographers came to stay at Maini’s Hill Cottages, a homestay run by my family. They were old friends. They came on a family vacation and had their photography gear with them. A photographer will always remain a photographer after all. What followed were two days of great photography and photo-walks and some beautiful moments spent together.

On trail of snow-capped peaks

Hills always attract me. Even more so, when the distant snow-covered peaks are visible. Every winter, these glimmering white peaks become my favorite subject for photography. Different peaks, different weather conditions, varying times of the day… these peaks are very dynamic! Every day presents a new subject.

Photoshoot, Nature & Spirituality

Yesterday, I had a special photo-assignment to complete. A photoshoot at our own Maini’s Hill Cottages. This was for some ‘not-too-professional’ modeling shots, later to be shared on social media and for marketing. As always, photography for me is not just being behind the camera and going click click click. Every assignment is a story. A story to be told and remembered. This one was no different.

Nature Walk at Natadol

Hot summer season and lazy sunny days… a perfect hint to take rest in the lap of nature, on the hills. On the last weekend, that’s what I did. With a couple of friends, we planned on staying at our cottages in Natadol (Maini’s Hill Cottages). The evening passed quickly in the company of friends, chatting, while sitting under the starlight. For the next morning, we planned on a nature walk along with our resident nature guide. It was hard to sleep at night in the expectation of early morning walk. When the first rays of light hit the snow-peaks, I was up and ready with my camera.
