I spent my childhood in Ratnapura , Sri Lanka. Amazing city and I may say that Ratnapura is the city of Gems. Growing in a city with rich scenic beauties, laid the foundation of becoming a nature and wildlife photographer. Later, moved to Colombo to complete my higher education, in the field of Information technology. Once I obtained my BSc in IT, I started off my career as a software engineer. The very first item I bought from my first salary was a Point & Shoot Camera, operating fine still. I was fortunate to work in USA and Australian based companies as a senior software engineer. Living and experiencing diverse cultures, seeing scenic beauties of the other parts of the world made a huge impact on my passion of becoming a professional photographer.

Photography is not simple as I thought. I realized that, to become a professional, I need to work hard. I was relying on Google and YouTube videos, which helped me a lot in self studying. I was blessed to get the opportunity to study under Mr. Lal Hegoda, one of the most skillful photographers in Sri Lanka. He was a good teacher and a mentor. My wife, encouraging me in every step, gifted me my first DSLR camera. I started learning professional photography and I knew I can fill the gaps. The endeavors I took, made me fallen in love with Fashion photography. I am proud of whom I have become today. My passion never dies, I want to learn and explore every corner in the photography field.
