About Sumukhee Shankar

A civil engineer by profession, photography happened to me as a hobby. I was always found carrying a small Sony compact camera during my college days. Photography has now become a passion, which has grown ever since, more so after my first Nikon DSLR, a D5100 about 4 years ago. It initially started with shooting flowers and squirrels in our garden. I was often teased for 'stalking squirrels' at Lalbagh. I started realizing my love for the art as I started exploring the different genres. I often had a tendency to see frames with or without a camera. Although I have not confined myself to a particular genre, macro photography, dance and food photography interest me the most. It was in 2014 that I quit my corporate job and got into photography full time. Since then I have been  doing something I enjoy the most - making images, trying to preserve precious memories for people. 

Apart from photography I also enjoy singing and listening to music. An ardent lover of nature, tree walks and bird watching are my way escaping from day to day hustle bustle.
