   WHO AM I   

I am Riddhi. I am an independent traveler, photographer and content creator. At my heart, I am a storyteller. 

I started traveling when I was just 4 years old. While growing up, my parents took me to a large number of places in India. Once I was on my own, I visited 23 countries and 24 Indian states. But more than number of places, I am counting the love that I receive on this journey.

Born in Kolkata, I stayed in 10 different states due to academic and professional pursuits. I have been fortunate to study in the best institutes in the country, including St. Xavier's College, Kolkata, Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and XLRI School of Management, Jamshedpur. 

Post my MBA, I have worked in MNCs like Mondelez and EY, and then been part of building a successful start up, Portea. I won national awards in loyalty marketing and brand innovation. I traveled to most of the places while having a full time job, until I decided to take the plunge into this beautiful world of exploration in December,2018. Since then travel and photography have been my way of life. 

I am a full time photographer, with my work published on prestigious platforms, including BBC, National Geographic Yourshot, Natgeo Traveller India, Lonely Planet Magazine India, The Street Photography hub, Street Photography International, Street Sans Frontieres and multiple other platforms. While I mostly work on travel and landscape photography, I personally love street photography a lot. I also accept selective assignments on pre-wedding shoots and creative fashion projects.

 

Welcome to my world!
