A student of Comparative Literature and a Human Resource professional turned into a Photographer, my life has turned the wheels of karma to make me take steps forward to discover the myriad hues of this world around us. Through my lens and the environment (around me), I remain a student in search of moments that make our life so beautiful.
A graduate from the New York Institute of Photography (NYIP), I’ve trained extensively under some of the best photographers in the United States. Today I look at the world searching for visual enrichment, and focusing on moods, expressions, styles and nature.
I am Swati Chakraborty, a photographer based out of the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA, smitten with the spirit of “wanderlust” and wanting to travel the world in search of new and challenging assignments.
