What was your path to being the founder at Studio A?
I started on a different note, and am continuing on a different note now, but I am grateful to the path I’ve come through. From being an engineering student to doing my masters in the US, working a corporate job there, and coming back to India to start up my Photography career, every phase of my life has been an enriching experience. I still remember the first day I quit my job and embraced the world of photography full time. The next thing I know, we are now a team of 25, Studio A, one of the top wedding photography firms in the country. When you truly want something and work hard towards it, the universe conspires. Looking forward to more from here.
How is it running a business with family?
This indeed is a family business. By family I mean my team, and like any joint family, we’ve had our ups and downs. Our strength lies in the way we stuck together through the tough and pleasant times equally. That team spirit is something you cannot create over the night. We took our time. We found the synergy, and we are now on our way to create history. I am confident we can, and we will.
