Official photographer of the Royal Challengers Bangalore for DLF IPL 2010.

What a day !!! All prayers answered !!!

Being selected as the Official photographer for the Royal Challengers Bangalore for DLF IPL 2010.

75 mins to shoot - edit & submit…....... this was an absolute marathon. After all this was a lull for 3 hrs wherein the interviews started…..... man these were the longest hours of my life ! Felt like 300 yrs with 10,000 butterflies in my stomach ...... groups were made consisting 1 photographer, 1 videographer, 1 podcaster & 1 blogger. My group was numbered 9, oops did I say group? I was the last photographer to be interviewed accompanied by 1 blogger as everyone had their groups & the leftovers were just packed in the last group ( group of 2..lol).

Should say that Anil bounced a few tricky questions & Ray too was pretty involved in a photographic conversation…........thats it, all this lasted for 10 mins & then a decision making break for 15 mins & then the FINALE !!!!

I still can’t get over the feeling I was in when my name was announced !!! GOD this was it !

After all this was followed by the media for interviews & images ..... this was the first time I realized that how difficult it is to face more than 50 cameras at once with lightning flashes….phew what a feeling to be in front of the camera for once !!!

I thank RCB for this fantabulous opportunity, thank DNA for organizing the event, thank all the people involved in yesterdays event & a big thanks to all the fellow participants who supported me all the way & congrats to all the fellow winners.

Cheers guys ! Enjoy the images !
