Subhash Sapru APSA
A PR man by profession and photographer by choice, I live in Chandigarh in India where I graduated with Hons. in Geography and did post-graduation in the same subject. While doing Post-graduate Diploma in Journalism, I had started my career as a freelance journalist. Later on I joined Public Relations Department of a State Government where photography is not a part of my profession.
I had taken up the hobby of photography in my early teens and over the years my interest in this form of art and expression has grown with my age. I have been actively participating in some of the prominent international exhibitions within India and abroad since 1997 and have held two solo shows in my home town.
Having used conventional film cameras for a long time, I completely shifted to digital photography in 2007. Now I find it more convenient and has joined this study group to learn and improve my skill in electronic imaging. I like to capture the element of human interest and storytelling images.
I was introduced to Photographic Society of America in 1998 and that opened new photographic opportunities for me. In the year 2008, I was awarded the distinction of APSA. I also have got three stars from PJ Division, two stars from PT Division and one star from Nature Division of the PSA. Earlier, in 2003 I was also made an Associate of India International Photographic Council (IIPC), New Delhi.
Apart from being a member of PSA, I am also a Life Member of IIPC and Federation of Indian Photography (FIP), Kolkata. My contributions have been published by some of the leading newspapers and magazines like PSA Journal and View Finder of FIP.
I am indebted to my brother Mr Brij M. Sapru for nursing my interest in photography all these years and equally important is the support of my wife and daughter.
