Principal photographer

Ricken is a renowned Architecture Photographer that believes in capturing the designs and details in all their structural glory. Ricken is creative, receptive, and not afraid to take a risk when it feels right. As a result, he has found himself coming up with creative solutions for snapping some incredibly difficult photos on a number of occasions. 

Ricken is an entrepreneur, ran a successful apparel business, has had his Masters from one of the top universities in London. However, as most of the clichés go, photography was his true calling. He put in a lot of time and effort in growing his organic apparel business, however, the days when he got back from his shoots, were the days, in his words as he puts it, that were "most productive and fulfilling". If Ricken says he does not have the dates for your project, it most probably is because he might just be scheduled to ride up to Ladakh and not because he is so swamped with work that he cannot accommodate you. Do ask him about his adventures from the Guinness World Record trip. Yes he is a Guinness World Record holder.

You can check his travels, biking stories, food stories on his site www.arotography.com

The Fixer

Sonal is the heart of the company. Armed with a Master's degree in International Business and having worked as a Finance & Operations Director in her previous company, she decided to join her husband (Ricken) in this fantastic journey of photography. Although not a photographer herself, she manages the weight of the entire company on her sweet shoulders. From client servicing to "paisa wasooli" she does it all and with flair.

"It's amazing to see an idea, design, emotion convert itself into a photograph, and then when the client looks at the result and goes WOW, thats what I enjoy the most" says Sonal.

Oh!!! and she travels with Ricken on his motorcycle across the country. The duo have already travelled around 35,000 km's together on their two wheels. Do ask her about her adventures and see her face light up with excitement and wonderful stories.
