Meet this self taught budding Travel Photographer from Jamia who is getting global attention

During his graduation days, Mohd Danish would flip through the pages of National Geographic and imagine being a photographer in New Delhi. He was captivated by the faces and places that seemed worlds apart from his typical places of Delhi. In the fast pacing world of DSLR photography, he started his journey with a basic smartphone and it was not just the cameras and good phones but even his family would not support him. He belongs to a middle-class family of Bihar and for his family, photography was just a waste of time, but somewhere something kept him motivated.

Fast forward months later, he is still living the dream as a travel photographer, working throughout Delhi and other states of India. He is now a graduate in Travel And Tourism Management and is currently pursuing Diploma in French from Jamia Millia Islamia.

He started his blog page with the name  @travelwithdanish  on Instagram. Looking at his work now, though, it strikes us that what he actually did, more often than not, was to make the common places look wondrous and beautiful. He worked hard a lot for his blog and in the toughest competition, his works started getting noticed within 6 months, his Photographs started getting published nationally and globally.

His pictures have been published in Delhi Times, Condé Nast Traveller India and Spain, Travel And Leisure India, Outlook Traveller, Tripoto Community, Lonely Planet India Magazine, LBB NCR etc. His snaps have been featured in more than 100 pages.

Recently he has been invited and rewarded with the newly launched Pixel 3XL for his work for photography at Google office.
