A small town boy from India, Sanak Roy Choudhury is currently a practicing optometrist in Muscat, Oman. His journey as a photographer started as a child with his travels within India. He accompanied his father, who worked for the Indian Railways, across the length and breadth of the diversely beautiful country. The rich culture and the varied landscape of India formed the initial impressions on Sanak and motivated him to frame and capture the beauty through his lens.
Started as a hobby and perhaps as an album of memories, Sanak’s skill as a photographer slowly honed towards perfection through reflection and self-improvement. Technicalities improved but his forte remained composition and framing. He had still not taken his hobby seriously.
It was in late 2012 that he found an outlet to exhibit his talent and repertoire of photographs through social media. The immediate following and praise encouraged him to take photography seriously. Nikon D7000 with an 18-105 lens was his first gift to himself on this road of self-discovery. With his new ammunition he travelled to Agra to capture the magnificent Taj Mahal.
A self-taught photographer, he admits that he found the initial phase challenging. To capture on camera the frame he had in mind was not easy and to this end he took help from YouTube tutorials. Since then there has been no looking back as he has crossed various milestones on his path to success
