About Me

VJ Gear

Bought a 📷 in 2004 to photograph my grandparents on their maiden flight and thereafter, it became my best companion as I chased what I love the most with it: Airplane Emoji (Apple/iOS Version)

Wanted to be a pilot all my life, got into flight school a month after graduation.

Circumstances led me into corporate slavery for almost a decade. Which, I finally quit for good a few years earlier, and am now back chasing my dream.

My passion for photography has led me to meeting some fabulous people from around the world, the privilege of their friendships as well as travelling to great places and the chance to see & photograph some extraordinary spectacles.
