Sandeep belonged to a middle-class family owning an Aluminium business. When he was 13 years old, a light two-wheeler was gifted to him by his father, and he would travel to Delhi, with huge traffic on roads. His journey of real life started from then, and he learned to face the practical situations day by day. A few years later, the business collapsed, and the onus was on him to fill in this crucial time of need. By then, he was a third-year B.Com student at Kirorimal College, Delhi. This turmoil situation made him decide to drop out from his curriculum and join a multi-level marketing company for manufacturing & marketing household products.
As he was searching for opportunities to earn more money to support his family, he stepped into the world of modeling. As days passed, he witnessed the harassment and exploitation the models had to go through in the industry, and that ignited his desire to help countless aspiring models. His desire changed to his mission, he did a 2-week course in photography and set up his own company by the name of Mash Audio Visuals Pvt. Ltd. and started making portfolios.
Challenges did not stop to hinder his mission, and that led him to start a company along with his three friends, but then it was shut down within six months. At that time he was a young man of 21 yrs with a mission in the heart to make people’s life easier by “sharing” was hopeful enough for his next step and he noted down his entire experience in a reversed book on marketing.
Next year itself he shook the world of modeling by taking more than 10,000 shots of 122 models in just 10 hours and 45 minutes and created a world record. The passing fad he received did not make him lose his focus, and he was to launch his very own ImagesBazaar at the age of 26.
