Born and raised in India, Sandeepa has now lived and worked across three countries and their respective creative markets. A commercial and food photographer at heart, her roots lie in journalism and it is this background that influences the narrative of a lot of her work. She has worked for a number of great clients, some of whom are Pepsi Co, Save the Children, Accor Pvt Ltd, The Indian Navy and so on. Sandeepa enjoys the process of conceptualizing and studying color and style trends. As a growth strategy, she is honing her art directional skills and seeks to influence and challenge her photography with this point of view.
Aside from her life in the world of photography, Sandeepa pursues the performance arts as a hobby. She is also a philosophical gardener reassuring herself and her peers that it takes both rain and sun for a seed to grow. A belief in the power of a world without borders, a people without division and a perfect cup of tea drives her everyday.
