In Conversation with Masoom Parekh on Scuba Diving

Lumix 24-105mm F4 Lens – Review and Test Shots

LENS REVIEW Lenses are expensive and we cannot afford all. This makes it all the more crucial to get some hands-on experience and useful insights from somebody who has used a lens over longer period and tested it in different conditions, not for the sake of a review, but actual day-to-day utilities and real satisfaction.…

My First International Trip – Thailand

What would you expect from your first international trip? In my case, it was just the curiosity to explore a different country than mine to observe its geographical diversities, people, culture, roads, cities, markets and experience the food. From the automobile brands to the life of a commoner, I was curious like a small child…

South Goa on a Weekend

Resources

I keep reading books and articles and watching educational videos. I also attend a lot of workshops to sharpen my photography skills. This page is dedicated to the learning resources I found quite useful and firmly believe, would be extremely helpful for anyone who wants to learn more.

Art & Photography

Photography means nothing if it is devoid of art and personal expression of the artist. The two mediums of visual art are so intertwined that I cannot imagine one without the other. That is why I always focus on enriching my knowledge and understanding of the art and its history. In this artistic pursuit, I find and learn many interesting facts, stories and useful insights.


“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
