Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from, are you new in town... ?

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.

What specific areas of photography are you most interested in?

Potraits, landscapes and still life

What would you most like to learn about or improve in your photography?

Composition. Lighting. Subjects

What photography skills can you share with other members?

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

Does your profile photo clearly show your face (and nobody else’s) and list your real name (first name at least)? If you have an objection to uploading a photo, please explain it to an organizer at an EPyC event before submitting your application.

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?


An amateur photographer interested in experimenting any genre! The experience counts...
