Akshay Singh Jamwal was born in Jammu, India, but he's spent most of his life in Mumbai. Growing up, he aspired to be a a scientist but also had various passions in the arts, including music, sketching and photography.
While in college studying to be a particle physicist, he also dabbled in the tech industry, supplying custom computers or web design solutions during the first dot-com boom.
The photography bug had bitten him early -his father handed him a Minolta XG-1 when he was 13 years old or so- but he only thought about taking it up professionally after the dot-com crash of the early 2000s.
After finishing a short course at the National Institute of photography, he decided to pursue a full-time career in photography. Akshay assisted commercial photographer Himanshu Seth until he spread his wings in 2005.
As a commercial photographer, Akshay forte's are products, headshots, portraits, industrial photography and the occasional fashion shoot.
However, his personal interests are nature and wildlife conservation and as of this writing, he's taken up an ambitious project to photograph indigenous bee species and other important pollinators.
