During his many travels and backpacking trips, Bhaskar always makes sure to bring a camera along. Though not technically trained in the art of photography, he has been blessed with the innate ability to capture natural beauty on film. He believes it is the job of a photographer to convey the truth, and truth is always contained in a moment. Throughout his many travels, Bhaskar has pushed himself to capture the moments he experienced with ever increasing passion, detail, and clarity. When he’s not working or traveling, Bhaskar loves cooking, listening to music, zip lining, reading, and watching films.
