A little about the winner:
Nikhil, a Delhi-based wedding photographer, has been pursuing photography for the past 9 years.
“My Journey as a photographer started in 2009 when I picked up a small digicam of my friend. I was fantasized by the macro shots it took and immediately decided to buy a camera for myself. I shot with point and shoot camera for some time and then bought a DSLR. I loved traveling and always took my camera wherever I went. Then I started shooting weddings in 2012 and started working professionally for clients on various projects. I continuously shoot weddings and concerts professionally and travel for my personal projects.”
