CREATIVE GENES

Hi, I am Vivek!
A lawyer who loves photography and travelling.

Welcome to my blog where I share my stories and photographs, not only from the places I travel to with limited leaves, but also the food I relish, the people I meet, and beautiful moments I share with them. You can hate me for being blunt and love me for being honest.

Hello, I’m Vivek. A lawyer by profession, a visual artist by passion. Painting in school took me to a whole new journey of photography later in my law school. I have been taking up professional assignments since 2015. I love travelling and creating artwork that starts conversations. Know more

Delhi Days

The first-ever metropolitan city I ever visited, it was Delhi, as a small kid in the year 1996. I only have faint memories of the city from those times. I was in Delhi for more than a month with my uncle and grandmother. Thankfully, my uncle took me to all the major tourist attractions in Delhi, leaving me happy and contented like never before.

How to Choose the Best Camera for Yourself

This question, though very simple, has a profound answer that goes beyond marketing gimmicks and a simple comparison of camera specifications. It is probably the most difficult question, particularly when you are investing your hard-earned money into buying an expensive camera with even more expensive lenses and accessories around it. Having a modest background withContinue reading “How to Choose the Best Camera for Yourself”

Naldehra, Himachal Pradesh

Four days, four different moods. From gorgeous grey to pristine white, tranquil blue to resplendent green, nature is just at its best everywhere you move your eyes. Far away from the hustle and bustle of Shimla, Naldehra gives you a refreshing break from a typical tourist place, offering a majestic view of pristine peaks. The best time to come here is winter when you can probably catch beautiful snowfall like we did.

Chikmagalur, Karnataka

The literal meaning of Chikmagalur is ‘Land of the younger (Chikka) daughter (Magalu)’. It is one of the most popular haunts for people in Bangalore looking for a refreshing weekend getaway, full of scenic hills, coffee estates, and waterfalls. The climate here is pleasant throughout the year. However, I would recommend you to visit thisContinue reading “Chikmagalur, Karnataka”

Patna Se Hain

Don’t go by the title. I originally hail from a small town in Bihar called Katihar. Patna has just become a new home ever since I got married. After surviving immuring eight months of lock-down in Mumbai, right after our wedding, we immediately headed to Patna for a fresh breeze of much-needed ‘break’, saying ‘Hello’Continue reading “Patna Se Hain”

“Vivek has an eye for detail and is a perfectionist to the core. There were so many amazing shots that he took, however he was not satisfied with that and kept taking more shots until he got that perfect shot. He never tires during a shoot and keeps at it till he is completely satisfied. He made a lot of otherwise dreary and dull shots come alive through his photography. He also spends a lot of time post the shoot to select the good photographs and edit them to give it that finishing edge.” ― Priyadarshini Shetty

“We loved the candid photographs Vivek took at our wedding. From the Mehendi to the Bidaai, he covered everything, including the make-up and wardrobe shots. The pictures he has captured of our family and friends will be treasured for a lifetime. He was polite, patient, accommodating and got along so well with us that it felt like he was a part of our extended family. As a bride, I felt very comfortable having him around, he worked around our constraints and took photos that authentically captured the moments. Choosing him as the photographer for our destination wedding in Goa was our best decision.”Archana Sinha

“The talent is there. Of this there is no doubt; glance through his photos and the skill becomes supremely evident. What the pictures may not tell you about this man though, is his patience, his unending patience. And his desire to push, to do that little bit extra that distinguishes a good photo from an excellent one. The other impressive bit about Vivek is, I think, the fact that he is own harshest critic. Highly recommended, and a thorough professional.” ― Anuj Garg
