He found his passion towards photography at the age of 22, a B.Com graduate who is now a Fashion Photographer shares his life journey of how clicking pictures moulded his life. “It was never an easy expedition for me, I had to cross the roads of struggle and pain yet strongly stand by my decision despite the stones thrown at me and right now when I look back at my journey it feels like a phantasmagoria”, says Resham Thapa.
It was in the busy streets, he learnt the art of photography when he first grabbed his camera; it was the roads, the crowd, the houses and shops that were his teachers. At the early stages of his career, he worked as an assistant with Ganesh Toasty and team viz. The BlackPearl Photography, and the photographer has tried his hand in different types of photography starting from street, products, landscapes, wildlife, wedding, candid, food and many more. Photography according to Resham is a blend of capturing the emotions with a creativity portraying the joy of living, the special moments or in other words the live moments that appear right before your eyes. Capturing images has made him look at the world in a whole different way adding more colours to life, setting every moment in a frame and investing in memories.
As he kept learning the art, his inclination slowly shifted to Fashion Photography, where he felt he could create fantasy filled with, prolific colours, plenteous garments, exploring the various types of styling and designing. Apart from these elements it also dealt with bridging new concepts and traversing through themes that would break stereotypes. The photographer also feels that, “Fashion is an industry, which would give him much exposure to creativity and out of the box ideas as it is an industry that undergoes constant progression, so in turn it becomes an essentiality to give the audience fresh looks, in depth detailing of the various accessories and costumes”.
Fashion sense for a photographer doesn’t happen overnight, as you work with several models and try the different kind of garments pitches in the photographer’s visualisation, along with various angles, the perfection and its colour sense. Not everybody gets their first shot picture perfect; perfection, clarity and quality come through the experience and what one learns from his or her mistakes.
Some of his recent works were featured in the Top notch magazines like ‘Femina’ and ‘We’. The photographer concludes by saying, “Like there’s a famous say, a picture speaks a thousand words similarly they’re the best ways to preserve memories”.
