Ishaan is a professional photographer with a post graduate diploma in professional photography and an engineering degree. He works in the field of wildlife conservation and rural documentary.


In the last four years he has worked towards using the power of photography to have a direct and visible effect on good social causes, particularly in combating inequality in all its forms, promoting freedom, education and environmental protection. He is actively involved in education, teaching photography in rural areas of Kachchh, while also instructing courses on Tropical Field Biology in Peru.


The grit and determination of ordinary people who achieve extraordinary things, while making the best of local conditions have inspired him to keep his core underlying values, which influence everything that he does – compassion, honesty and humility.
