Studio Name

Suruchi Drolia photography

I'm Suruchi Drolia, a professional portrait photographer, based out of Bengaluru, India. I have this insatiable love for memories and photos.

Now, here's a little background on me. I actually started as a Chartered Accountant, delving into the world of tax consulting for a decade. But you know what? My heart was calling me towards something different, something that truly set my soul on fire. And that's when I discovered my passion for photography.

I took a leap and completed a full-time summer course in photography in New York, from Parsons School of Design. Ever since then, I've been immersing myself in the magical realm of portrait & fashion photography.

Scars and Wisdom

'Hindsight' is a powerful thing.
Who we used to be and what we went through must feel different in that moment in time. In the present, if we reflect, it can show us so much we couldn't fathom then.

Thinking back on how we dealt with a situation before versus now, can show you growth, progress, learnings, or just a change – in you and in your life. It is not to say that what probably hurt you before won't now, but, how you deal with it or perceive it, will change. We can reduce it to the 'beauty of time', but let's give ourselves some 'credit'.

What we go through, changes our composition – our coping skills, self-awareness, emotional quotient, resilience, cognitive skills, and so much more.

But, what I can't say is 'when' that happens for each of us and how we choose to take it. Yet, my hope would be that if bad days or challenges find you, they don't break you, but leave you new. Rich with inspiration, strength, and reform.
