Suraj Ratna Shakya’s love for storytelling has taken him around Nepal and beyond, searching for causes and issues he believes in and working with humanitarian organizations who’ve believed in him. He captures the stories into images, both still and moving, and helps to bring out the positive changes happening around.
As a freelance photo/videographer, he has been working with various humanitarian organizations and has been featured widely, both in national and international level. Being self-taught to a large extent, he is always keen to grow and improve, by learning and sharing with others.
Hence, when not running around to capture stories, he can be found wandering around Kathmandu, guiding and mentoring a group of young photographers in a workshop he conducts annually and through a media arts collective he is involved in, sharing his 12 years of experience in multimedia.
