I always love to find lights among the darkness and see the bright side of life. I am creative, and I like to work with creative minds.
Faruque, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
Photography is my passion, and now it's my profession too. Photography is always something was inside of me. I saw my father used to take lots of pictures of my childhood with his Kodak film camera and that is where my passion for photography grows. I always wanted t to capture the moments and kept that as memories, I did learn basic of photography from my Sir Dr Simanta Kalita a passionate photographer and he gave his one DSLR to me to learn and explore. That is how I got into photography. Now I worked with my co-partner and started our venture "The Watermark" photography service here.
Who is your inspiration in life Faruque? How do you keep inspired?
My mother. She is the hero of my life, and she keeps me inspired all the times.
We all make mistakes Faruque; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
It was one time where I had to work with a cinematographer which we hired for a wedding, and the output that he delivered was not very professional and creative. I wish I could not let that happen.
Faruque, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
Before any shoots, I sit with the clients with my co photographers and note down every tiny detail of their requirements and expectations from the shoots, this conversation includes the important person of the day which we need to capture especially. That's how I do.
Please tell us Faruque, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
It is more than one time in my photographic career where I had to be very strategic to met up my priorities.
Faruque, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Faruque, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
It was when three years back Image Ind had organised theme-based exhibition, and one of my photos got selected in competition submission from all over the country. This was my recognition as a photographer in national level. That was one of my best moment.
Faruque, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Being creative or finding creative ideas is not always when you think of it. The ideas and concept come in the head like anytime while I am walking on the street or enjoying music. I always find exciting about being creative. It allows you to push your limits.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
If you have the instinct accept it and never ever give up. This road is hard you've got to have to make sacrifices too.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
