Know Me

"Creating Human connections through visual stories"

Hi! I am Amit Kagra

Being surrounded by nature brings out the happy soul in mine. I am a Travel photographer with a decade of life as a practicing monk, traveling to villages as a rural communications consultant.  As a travel photographer, I focus on local traditions and culture and document them. I enjoy conversations with elderly folks in the countryside. My focus always is to create human connections through visual stories.

Fortunate to be part of India’s largest rural retail chain and a rural consultancy firm in a short span of time. My work took me to the vast countryside and I was fascinated by the rustic nature of the hinterland.

Avid traveler, cross- culture communication explorer. Having traveled across the length and breadth of my country, understanding consumer psychology comes naturally to me.

Experiencing different cultures and seeing people react differently to a similar situation made me question many of the things around us.  Fortunate to be part of India’s largest rural retail chain and a rural consultancy firm for a short span of time. My work took me to the vast countryside and I was fascinated by the rustic nature of the hinterland.

Special mention in Emerging Talent Awards, 2017 conducted by Lensculture.
Chosen as one of the top 5 travel influencers with the best original photos in 2018 by Holidify, India’s only destination discovery platform.

I strive towards creating soulful images of landscapes and traditional lifestyles. Experience fine art prints and intimate photo books at Photo Store. I also pen my thoughts on travel and photography on my blog.

You alone cannot move forward in life. You have to live like a student so you keep learning and evolving as a human being. For the creative artist, tools are very important. Although I firmly believe that your creative strength does not depend on the gear you use. Having said that when it comes to certain niche techniques, playing with the light you do need camera gear which can handle light or the absence of it in a much better way.

I started with Canon 600D or Rebel T3i. Now I have shifted to Fujifilm xT20 and I am in love with this camera. I also use Huawei P20 pro for my smartphone photography. This is such a powerful camera phone. I now do most of the street photography with this beast of a phone
