For Amit the photo bug bit him pretty early in his formative years when he first experienced the magic of clicking a photograph in one of the trips he undertook during his school vacations. Soon his hobby became an obsession when he was presented with a camera after his graduation. Armed with his new toy and rolls of cine-cut-film, wandering across the streets of Kolkata (his hometown) became a regular feature in his daily life. In search for greener pastures, he migrated to Mumbai. He quit his banking job in 2007 and jump started his media industry career
Currently he works as a principle photographer with IndiaExpress Newspaper in Mumbai.
