-Youth Gallery- Bright Future Ahead : Rohan Mehta

-Youth Gallery-
Bright Future Ahead
 Rohan Mehta

Rohan Mehta is a student of Humanities in class 12th at Modern School, New Delhi. He has been a nature lover since his childhood. Being interested in drawing and painting, he started sketching the scenic places and animals of zoos, national parks and gardens. This was some five years back when he felt that he was not able to do full justice to the nature’s beauty. He thought of capturing the magnificence of nature through camera. He started photographing the creatures of nature and good-looking places through his camera that had been gifted to him by his father. After watching Rohan’s dedication, the photography teacher of his school, Mr. Lajpat Rai motivated him to join India International Photographic Council (IIPC). He joined IIPC in 2013. Consequently he started attending the workshops conducted by this organisation. This helped him in polishing his skills. In a little while he started participating in the contests of photography art. The results were positive. Rohan admits, “I have learnt a lot into the field of art-photography from IIPC. The great teachers associated with this council, like Mr. O.P Sharma, Mr. Aseem Sharma and Mr. Hemant Chopra have taught me the fundamentals of photography. This knowledge is like the foundation stone for me.”  He further adds, “I can never forget the inspiration given by my school teacher Mr. Lajpat Rai.”
The fields of his interest are Wildlife, Nature, Travel and Street photography. His works can be seen on his Facebook Page “Rohan Mehta Photography”.
