Meet Ayush Goyal, your passionate photographer, and videographer guide.
Nothing deters him – not the steep mountains, nor the treacherous terrains, or the extremity of the unapologetic weather when it comes to clicking the perfect shot.
He is an immersive artist whose pictures breathe life, stirs souls, evokes emotions, and transport topographies.
His landscapes zoomed-in show incredible details, as a metaphor for the different textures of life. The portraits, of people who work with their hands and bodies, show what was always essentially a part of ‘being human.'
You can check out more of his work here and trust your eyes rather than us when we say he is really good at what he does.
