Though there is hardly anything that he has not tried, he particularly prefers taking snaps, traveling to new places, taking part in all kinds of adventure sports and reading books.
Sandeep has always had a keen interest in reading various kinds of books. During the time of his hardships, he particularly turned to the books written by authors like Wayne W. Dyer, Joseph Murphy, and Napoleon Hill as they wrote about the art of motivating people. Some of Sandeep’s all-time favorite reads are “Inspiration, Your Ultimate Calling”, “Think and Grow Rich” and “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind”. These books gave him the materials he needed to rise above the problems and take the stride in his own hands. These inspired him to rethink about his mistakes and learn from them.
Though he was very good in studies, he chose an offbeat career and ultimately gained success after a lot of hardships. He tried to gain success and a better footing in various kinds of ventures but all in vain. He entered the world of modeling when he was just a young lad of 19, he also strained as a photographer’s assistant. He even tried to write and publish a book that highlighted all he knew about marketing. But none of these worked out for him in the way he expected. Then the idea of making professional portfolios of budding models dawned on him.
He was not getting a lot of assignments at the beginning of his career and thus, he thought of a plan to change matters. He contacted all young models and said that he would click their portfolio snaps for free. He worked hard and managed to click the snaps of 112 models who posed for him within a span of 10 hours 45 minutes. He took a whopping 10,000 shots. He clicked his way into the Limca Book of World Records.
As soon as he managed to win this certificate, he became a well-known name among top photographers in the fashion industry. With time, the volume of his work increased, and he began to progress towards achieving professional and economic success. It was in the year 2006 that he founded the ImagesBazzar.
Even though many hurdles were glaring at his face, he did not give up and held with strength and determination. Now, ImagesBazzar is recognized as a top company that has the ownership of millions of snaps of models based in India. He is catering to the needs of around 7000 clients, in more than 45 nations.
Photography is both his passion and profession. He has also tried to pen down his thoughts, associated with marketing. When he wrote the book, he was only a young man of 21 years. The book was not well received, but this did not break his moral. He tried and tried till he succeeded. Now, readers are lapping up his books on motivation and success. Apart from this, he also holds seminars for motivating the youth of the nation so that they can get the mental strength of chasing their dreams.
