Born and raised in Nepal, Aman Shakya started his journey towards photography during his undergrad studies in Information Technology back in 2012. That was the time he first picked up a camera and then decided to pursue photography as his vocation. This steered him to SCAD, where he is currently doing his graduate studies in photography. He believes people's expressions reflect their thoughts and emotions, which connects him with them, and motivates him to embrace human elements in his photographs. Most of Shakya's work is studio based, and he excels in lighting his subjects, which led his work to be featured in March 2017 in Profoto RisingLight, an article series highlighting promising photography students from all over the world.
