Hello! My name is George Gupta and I’m so honored to be interviewed by Samata
I love travel, I tell stories, and I am a MBAian, I find beauty and awe in simple, stupid things, and I love making simple, stupid things look beautiful and awesome. People in love, places that tell stories, moments that bring joy are some of these simple, stupid things.

How is your journey so far as a photographer?
Four years ago I started photography and what an incredible experience it has been. When I look back over that time I find it amazing to see where it has all taken me, the business and in my personal life.
Life of a photographer is not simple , so what are the obstacles you faced so far?
Who acted as an inspiration in your life?
Oh gosh, it varies depending on the styles but I have always loved Subinoy das and Avik halder for their creativity. Both are so honest with their critiques that it always pushed me to work harder and he always took his time to encourage me.
Can you recall the day when you first clicked and what was the subject of that click?
When I got the camera for the first time, I was so curious to find out what’s in the roll so I took it out and just continued looking at it. I have had a camera in my hand since I can remember. I had a cheap Kodak KB10 camera I took everywhere with me and was always taking pictures .
