“My mother is an artist, my father is a scientist, brother an architect, and I am confused.”
The magic of growing up in India is that every individual has a unique story to tell. I am an accidental photographer: years back it all started with a serendipitous photo of milk overflowing. Shuffling across several borrowed cameras from supportive friends and family, learning exactly what each technical number meant, to freelancing and travelling over the years, I am Ankit Banerjee an independent photographer based in Bangalore, India. My forte is documentary, street, travel, children & family portraits, corporate events, and performances. With over 5 years of experience in the field, some of my past clients to mention are Boeing International Co., Microsoft Ventures, TEDxBangalore, INKT Books, Chai Point India, Translate (Handwoven Ikat), Witworks, Sofar Sounds Bangalore, Startup Leadership Program, Campus Diaries, MakeMyTrip, and Oodio Studio. I am currently pursuing my final year B.Sc. in Economics, Mathematics, and Statistics from St. Joseph’s College (Autonomous). Additionally, I am training in Grade 6 in Piano under the Trinity College London curriculum.
