How photographers spend their time
Naga Sadhus in full flow, Kumbh Mela
The first fortnight had been quite busy . Not because I was shooting a lot or doing assignments or travelling. It was nearly zilch. But it was because I was torn between photography and management. And I had to make a decision, to which I went in for the latter. Increasingly I have become more and more interested in using photography as a tool to enter management. There are a lot of ways in one can make effective use of photography and monetize it effectively. Specially in India a lot of trends that have been following outside have not surfaced in depth and hence there’s an opportunity. Soon followed shooting lots of emails and messages to people in industry ( mostly in management side ) that kept me busy for first half . And so, now the meetings follow. Whoever made the pie chart below was absolutely spot on.Sounds so serious !!
Waiting for the travel to begin post 24th…
Here’s something from the book I am reading currently on Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
” Coming back to America was, for me ,much more of a cultural shock than going to India. The people in Indian countryside don’t use their intellect like we do, they use their intuition instead,and their intuition is far more developed than in the rest of the world. Intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful that intellect, in my opinion. That’s had a big impact on my work”
