About Me

VJ Gear

Bought a đŸ“· 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 graduating in 2006.

Circumstances led to me getting into corporate slavery for almost a decade. Which, I finally quit for good at the start of 2015, now I breathe, photograph and live a little.

This passion of mine has enabled me to meet fabulous people from around the world and i’m privileged to have lasting friendships with many of them.
I have been to places and have had the chance to see as well as photograph some extraordinary spectacles.
A Sukhoi Su30 rolling in front of me at close distance, full-afterburner, lifting off & banking hard-left right over my head – that’s what i’m talking about! 😎
