MEET OUR TEAM

We used to love sketching with camera; the sweet sound of shutter regaled our senses. We were from different professions enjoying our exploration through lens. And we were destined to tread on the same boulevard. We decided to join hands in our small picturesque town Raiganj surrounded by the serene river Kulik and also the second largest Bird sanctuary of Asia, Kulik Bird Sanctuary, acted as a catalyst. And our very own North Bengal Photography Club started its journey on 17th June 2007. This never-failing soul mate will always remain our dream-boat to sail past the mundane world and anchor into a land of fulfillment where bonhomie is the mantra. click here to meet our team.
