What does the crow say?
Thank you for being here.

The crow is that very common bird that I grew up with in India. He represents stories of my childhood and reminders of where I came from. You will see the crow soar through my website sharing tidbits like old wives tales.

He will answer some frequently asked questions. If you have some others, please do not hesitate to be in touch.

What types of photography do you offer?
All kinds of people photography. I love capturing people in an authentic fashion working with mostly natural light. Most of my work is family and kid photography however I photograph a small number of weddings as well. And head shots, corporate shots, non-profits. Hey, if you want to hire me to take family pictures in Paris, I am right there. Well, you get the picture… people photography.

How do I know if Storyboxart is a good fit for me?
A good question. We can chat by phone. We can get to know each other. Or, I can get to know you as you know more about me at this point. Before we get there, please look through my portfolio. I want you to love it and feel it is a match made in heaven.

Where are you located?
The San Francisco bay area. I do travel on occasion to New York, Chicago, and to India.

How much does it cost?
To simplify, I have two offerings… Short Story Mini Sessions and Day in the Life Signature Sessions. To view the offerings please visit the investment page.

What products are client favorites?
Different folks, different strokes. But my signature products are the Shanghai Memory Box and the Manhattan Album. They are custom designed and take six-eight weeks from inception till completion.

Do you shoot film?
Yes, yes and yes. I love shooting film and have a myriad of cameras. I love the “look” of film and you can see various examples in my film gallery here and here.

Do you sell digital files?
Yes and no. If you are booking a session with me please consider using my complete skill set which is creating beautiful custom products. I am a huge believer of the tangible and most of my clients purchase a keepsake that you will cherish for an eternity. However, you do have the option of purchasing files as an add-on or otherwise.

I am ready to book a session. What next?
Wonderful! Please fill out the contact form here with your info. I will be in touch with you for a little chat so I can get to know you. Since my family is a priority, I do limited number of sessions every month. Once we chat, I can put you on the calendar.

What equipment do you use?
My bag of arsenal includes a variety of gear from digital cameras to film ones. Currently, my film family has grown more than my digital gear. If you would like me to photograph your session with film exclusively please let me know. There is a small added cost to cover the film costs.

What inspires you?
Many things. But in regard to your session…You. I love photographing people and telling their stories. When we set up a photo session, I will talk to you to get to know you. We will set up the stage for your session and let your story unfold on the day of your session. I love connecting people with their spaces. I will find things in your environment to make the story yours.

What does the crow really say?
Hmnn. If you are still asking chances are you might need to ask Siri. Or my ten year old can tell you what the fox says.
