DRISHTI | दृष्टि
DRISHTI MEANS SIGHT OR VISION IN THE ANCIENT LANGUAGE OF SANSKRIT, WHICH ORIGINATES IN INDIA.
Drishti began in the hot, muggy summer of 2006, on a road trip to New York City. I took my very first photos with my family's brand new digital camera, and fell in love. Since that summer in 2006, Drishti has grown from a hobby into a profession, focused on covering life with a vibrant, unique perspective. For me, Drishti has also become an integral part of keeping in touch with the many aspects of my Indian heritage, from dance to food to fashion.
Based in the bustling city of Washington, DC, Drishti specializes in weddings, engagements, and natural light photography.
I'm a public health geek by day, and a photographer by night. I love balancing a life in both the arts and the academics - I'm a trained Indian Classical Dancer, and I've been learning and performing Bharatanatyam (a dance form that originated in Southern India) since I was six years old. Currently, I work full time as an HIV Health Educator; I hope that I can keep up with a thriving career in the realm of HIV while keeping up with photography and dance, and pursuing my dreams of traveling and eating my way around the world!
When I'm not behind the camera, I can be found cooking up something delicious in the kitchen, choreographing dances (or sometimes just pretending that I'm in a Bollywood movie), pursuing my secret dreams of becoming an author, or curling up with a good book and a strong cup of masala chai (or coffee, if I need that extra jolt of caffeine!). I live for art, thunderstorms, and good food.
