About


Hello and welcome aboard! I am Dipanjan, a self-taught photographer based out of Kolkata, India.

I bought my first camera in my second year of graduation in 2014. Ever since my first solo trek to Hampta Pass, Himachal Pradesh - I have taken an active interest in photography, focusing mainly on landscape and astro-photography. Photography is not my profession, it's a side-hustle that keeps me going and helps me feel alive. Still yet to take the leap of faith, but I'm taking babysteps towards my dream.

I am really passionate about traveling, mostly to the mountains and the remote places on Earth. The feeling of enjoying an otherworldly landscape all by myself gives me pleasure and a sense of joy like nothing else. My creative style focuses on finding unique aerial perspectives of natural and urban landscape, which is not often seen before - which makes you ask the question of what exactly you're looking at. It's a niche I wish to specialize in the future. My next goal is to photograph the receeding icebergs of Greenland and Antractica.

My biggest confidence boost in my short photography career was when one of my aerial images made it to the finals of ROAM Awards in 2019 and one of eternal inspiration Chris Burkard ended up announcing my name on the stage (you can watch it here from 26:54 to 27:12). I have won many international awards since then, but this will always be the most special moment.

My aerial images have been recognized worldwide and won multiple prestigious accolades. They have been published in major international press such as The Guardian, BBC, DailyMail, National Geographic etc. Apart from photography, I'm also an insatiable glutton.
