Photography is more about ‘Art of Vision’
than just another visual art form

Learning Photography is not easy. Not because it’s rocket science, for the simple reason of understanding the true nature of Photography. What we normally think, Photography is the art of capturing a scene or a subject most aesthetically with the utmost technical brilliance. But there is another layer to it. Photography is not just what you see, but more importantly how do you see it. It is more about ‘Art of Vision’ rather than just another visual art form. Learning Photography is to view things that an untrained eye may not perceive. It’s about gifting the world a vision they must experience. We are here to offer you a vision unique to you.

Mentor Profile

About the Mentor

Saptarshi Chakraborty

Founder, Rishi On Ride

Bitten by the aesthetic bug quite early in life, Saptarshi always felt this deep urge to indulge in various forms of art and creative explorations. Driven by the incessant hunger for refinement of creative senses, he fulfilled this wanderlust by a long journey through the worlds of painting, music, literature and theatrics to name a few.
Saptarshi Chakrabory has seamlessly synchronized this rich legacy of aesthetic experience into his pursuit of Photography as visual art form, for over a decade. As is necessary to attain perfection in any creative field, he has mastered both the technical and aesthetic aspects of Photography. This self-taught multi-discipline performer’s major focus has always been fine art Photography.
During his very successful leadership profile as the Human Resource Manager in a reputed multinational for 12 years, Saptarshi felt this urge to share his knowledge to eager newcomers into the world of photography so much that he quit his job to take the deep dive in the role of a mentor, fulltime.
To keep the creative juice flowing and widening the gamut of expressive acumen he loves to explore new horizons and lifestyles which is a keynote to his photography works.
