A versatile photographer based in Mumbai, who loves to travel & click.
Hardwork, Passion, Vision are factors enough to describe the journey of an ‘IT professional’ to ardent ‘Photographer’! It’s me Anup Bokil.
Never knew a fervent trekker, roaming with a Kodak would dream to be a professional photographer and make this science an integral part of my life. Born and brought up in Maharashtra, influenced and inspired by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj since 4th standard took me to mighty Sahyadri. I have visited and studied around 200 forts and untrodden routes till date.
I have always had a keen interest in photography and started taking photography more seriously since 2012 with the purchase of my first DSLR. I’ve always loved nature and travel, but a love of photography developed much later when I realized I wanted to take better pictures of the places I saw, rather than just snapshot records. As I attempted to learn more about the art of taking pictures, I realized that my heart lay in landscape photography, and now it is this love of nature, of landscape, and a desire to capture the beauty of our surroundings that drives me to pick up my camera.
Travel is another fascination of mine and in the various different places I visit, I always hope to really capture the feel and spirit of the places and the people who inhabit them. I love photographing weddings because it has prime elements that I love to capture – people, emotions. Wedding photography is all about capturing emotions. It is a challenge to any photographer’s skill and it offers lot of creativity. I believe in capturing the moment so that it can be cherished forever. I’ve realized that photography is a personal journey, and I’m still only at the beginning. There’s always going to be so much more to learn and it’s a journey that will take me to many parts of the globe and for that I’ll be travelling for the rest of my life.
