Raju is a poacher of sorts. He shoots to take pictures; leaves behind his footsteps and goodwill. He turned a full time professional photographer in 1996 after 15 years as hobby and semi- professional. His special interests are interiors, tabletops and wildlife. He has been assigned by advertising agencies, engineering and hospitality industries, architects, developers, magazines and more.

 

His extensive travel in the country and abroad to learn from people and professionals has widened his perspective of photography, narrowing it down to minute details that add up to make a picture. He loves to experiment with light and cameras ends up building his own proprietary equipment. When not on assignment he is out there to breath pure oxygen or chasing wildlife. He started photography as a hobby in 1979.

 

Today he lives and breathes Photography.
