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. I have been regularly photographing development projects, stories and adventure races in the outdoors as a photographer and videographer, be it southern flats of Nepal, merciless humidity of midhills, or isolated regions of the Himalayas.

Having started a career in photography in 2015, 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 nine 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. More recently I worked as the photographer for the United Nations Nepal to cover its response for the Covid-19 pandemic, and also as a videographer for a Yeti documentary in Everest and Mustang regions.

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 Bardia for days on end, hoping to frame the elusive tiger. 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. 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.
