My name is Chetan Karnik and hail from Goa, India. I have been in Dubai since 1998 and love the life here. I am married for the last 8 years. I have worked in many industries like advertising, hospitality and banking. A major part of my professional life has been in banking having handled various products and even dappled in training staff for over 3 years. My love for photography is recent and began with me being gifting a Canon 550D by my wife. I was hooked. I started by clicking flowers, trees, birds, family etc and am now learning to think and plan out subjects and shoots. I like to travel, ride my bike and write. I have recently completed my first book - Delhi in my Belly - a pictographic narration detailing the adventure of 4 friends binging on street food in Delhi.
Potraits, landscapes and still life
Composition. Lighting. Subjects
An absolute amateur I wish to learn from the group. Once I interact I might realize that there is an area which I can contribute to and will be more than happy to share. I am a huge believer that knowledge grows through sharing. My experience in training can be utilized if required in creating presentations and conducting workshops
Yes I have. I have read the rules too and will comply. Just a question, how do I upload the pictures as required and when?
A banker by profession who has migrated from a person who didn't like carrying an 'aim n shoot' camera to one who is happiest carrying my DSLR along with all my lenses as well as the tripod!
