In this episode I speak with Bhushan Bagadia, one of India’s leading Underwater Photographers. In this hour-long conversation, Bhushan talks about his love for underwater photography, the way he combined his interests to tell the stories below the blue oceans by diving with sharks, helping conserve the coral reefs and more. He also shares his approach to teaching underwater photography in 4 weeks.
Bhushan Bagadia is a Photographer and Cinematographer. He took deep interest in Underwater Photography 10 years back, and is also a certified diver. He has dived in many dive sites to photograph sharks and help non-profits who are working to conserve the Coral Reefs.
Bhushan enjoys Sports Photography, and does a lot of that when he is not doing Underwater Photography. He was the official photographer for the Mumbai Indians for IPL Seasons 2013 and 2014.
He also is the Co-Founder of Simply Breathe where he organizes Yoga, Diving and Mindfulness retreats. Bhushan studied filmmaking at the New York Film Academy followed by advanced courses in the School of Visual Arts in New York.
There are plenty of reasons why you should listen to Bhushan Bagadia. Let me give the top 3:

This show is brought to you by Thrive Membership from Thrive Themes. Think about this. Back in the early 2000s, a lot of photographers and creative business owners started using Myspace to showcase their work and also grow their businesses. Jim, was one of them.
But in just a few years, Facebook arrived and a lot of these businesses, including Jim, found themselves in a deserted place, and had to literally start from scratch. Jim lost all his leads, customer contacts and everything else he had going on, inside Myspace. This is bound to happen when you rent a place…like a social media platform, to grow your business and brand.
Here’s something I want you to consider. Take full control of your business and your brand. Bring your customers and leads to your own website. And you can do it all by yourself, without having to spend thousands of dollars on a web agency.
