Simran Nanwani

Simran is an Entrepreneur of a small business called Seni Home and passionate photographer from Jakarta, Indonesia. Her styles vary depending on the moment and what inspires her to be creative. Born and brought up in Jakarta, Indonesia, Simran grew up with her parents and graduated from a Local International High School. She further pursued a Chartered Accounting Course(ACCA) in Singapore for 3(three) years. She started her own online business called Seni Home, in 2011, selling handicraft products made in Indonesia. She started developing a keen interest in Photography, after she was gifted her first digital camera, a Panasonic Lumix, in June 2007. In 2010, she took up a one day short course of Basic Photography which was conducted by an experienced photographer named Ross Deverson. She learned the basic tips and techniques of Photography. The interest turned into passion when she bought her iPhone. She started clicking pictures everywhere and of everything that caught her attention. They say practice makes perfect, and although she has a long way to perfection she has learned a lot and also gained more exposure through apps like Instagram. After getting herself a semi-pro camera – Canon Powershot G12 she has broadened her experience in exploring new techniques with macros,angles and clarity of shot. She enjoys capturing colors, architecture, people, nature, macro, and landscapes. She likes using her gears, as each of them gives its own personal satisfaction. When creating and sharing her work she often prefers to keep it simple by doing minor edits. Currently, she does not have specific plans for future. She would love to be featured in magazines like National Geographic or any other photography Magazine. She might add this passion to her current home business in future. Her definition of Photography would be not about clicking and sharing moments, but admiring the beauty of the Universe and interpreting it in ways that keep inspiring us to keep clicking.
