Yasir has started his photographic career from Kashmir,his native place. It was quite late when photography came in to his life, although it wasn’t a sudden decision,NO. Perhaps the passion for photography was somewhere deep inside but interestingly he never hold the camera till he was in late 20s.Actually what drove him into this world of photography was his interest in making pencil sketch portraits that he used to draw right from his childhood. He always used to observe his surroundings and tried to compose imaginary frames. It was because of his inclination towards sketching (of which he was obsessed with, those days), photography came into his mind.He was quite reluctant to express his thoughts, reason being his family had no connection with this craft neither did they have any camera. After graduation in Tourism studies, he took up all odd jobs whatever came into his way, but that flame, that passion for photography was still there. Eventually he decided to quit his job and pursue his career in Photography. Hence the journey began in 2007 by joining a local newspaper photojournalist in. It’s been more than a decade now in this field and he had been fortunate enough working with some big names in news publications. His work has appeared in Fortune magazine, Wall Street Journal, NYT lensblog, Wirtschaftswoche,Sightlife(NGO). He has worked with publications like, The Telegraph, Reuters, Fortune. Currently he is working as a Deputy Chief Photographer for India Today Magazine based in Delhi.
