Creatyst Interviews Photographer Siddharth Samant
Siddharth is an Engineer with great eye for Photography. Being a talented illustrator , his upcoming typography series is surely going to make him the favorite amongst his army of Instagram followers.
How did you take up Photography and tell us about your journey?
Photography for me started in my first year of engineering that was around 6 years back with my Uncles’s Sony Ericsson W200i. Dad got me an Olympus PnS which was responsible for most of my old Facebook albums. Two years later I got a Nikon D5100, my first DSLR. Midway I had joined Instagram and met this awesome community from Bombay called Mumbai Igers. After attending many meets and follower’s feedback gave me the push to become better at it.
Once I got “suggested” by the Instagram, it gave recognition to my work.
Nowadays, I take up assignments, not the big one though and work with brands for promotion on social media. I would like to continue it as a hobby.
Why don’t you take this us professionally?
I would not like to take this up professionally, as I am of the opinion that it will change my perspective about the art. Currently, I use it as a stress-buster, a way cope up with work and day-to-day activities.
What can expect next from you?
A Darth Vader mask series shot around Mumbai called as Bombay InVader, also working on blending typography with scenic pictures. typography is what I like and have worked on, so that would be cool. I would love to do a travel- photoblog, but getting done with my entrance exams first, :)
