While crossing the Tungabhadra river, which was quite choppy at that time, this rattan boat singlehandedly saved our lives by refusing to capsize, and we hung on to our dear lives by clinging onto these tightly roped rattans.

“Amateurs worry about equipment, professionals worry about time, masters worry about light” – this was taught to Ganesh at a very young age by his late dad, himself a photographer. He used to fiddle with his dad’s TLRs and SLRs. The love affair abruptly ended when his dad suddenly passed away, the affair rekindled when he borrowed a friend’s DSLR when he was 30. Ganesh considers himself a beginner even though he has been shooting for 7 years now. He loves travel photography and considers himself to be a traveller rather than a tourist. His first set was given to him by his educator wife, an Olympus E510, something which he still keeps in mint condition till today.
