Documentation and outdoor photography and videography, including lifestyle and culture

I’ve had the privilege to travel across the Himalayas of Nepal, India, Bhutan and the Alps of Europe as a photographer and writer for several magazines, adventure races, producers and explorers.

Having started a career in photography in May 2016 with the Everest Marathon, I was hired to shoot UTMR and UTMB, the world’s largest trail running race in the Alps, by September 2017. Photos I took have been featured on cover page of 5 magazines, books and reports, based internationally (France, Germany, UK, Taiwan and the United Nations). Further, UN Habitat commissioned me with a 135-page photo story report on beneficiaries post 2015 earthquake in Nepal.

Besides assignments in the city, I have been regularly photographing adventure events in the Himalayas as a photographer and videographer. These include Mustang Trail Race, Manaslu Trail Race, Annapurna 100 as well as Everest Marathon. Further, I have also been involved in quite a few visual documentation work with NGOs and INGOs – from southern flats of Nepal to merciless humidity of midhills, to isolated regions in the mountains.

I have good physical stamina, thrive with challenges and risks, and am self-sufficient while travelling. I do not depend on porters at elevations, have no issues crashing beneath a shady overhang, and can munch on stale, moldy bread for survival should such a situation present itself.

I have shivered through frigid nights at Annapurna’s eastern flanks awed by a meteor shower overhead. I have melted in the scorching summer of Bardiya for days on end, hoping to frame a tiger; it never showed up. I can crack a silly joke for a cheeky smile on an unsuspecting grandma or steal a shot of grandpas lazying and smoking in the sun. I can work long hours, waiting patiently at 5,400m to get the best light and the right action. And I equally can play hide n’ seek with a wagtail to capture its flight over a glacial lake.

When it comes to photography, I am trigger happy.
