Sumit Dua was born in India and moved to the United States at the age of 10. Later in life, he developed a love for photography. A spontaneous trip through India during 2004 sparked a passion for traveling and photographing the people, places and landscapes of this beautiful, colorful country. In 2008, Sumit spent seven weeks discovering his beloved birthplace. Sumit loves traveling there whenever he is able to sneak away from work for extended periods.
Sumit is a self-taught photographer who for a long time borrowed his uncle's camera out of a strong desire to snap photos of everything.
Today, he uses a Canon 5D and primarily a 24-70 f/2.8L Canon lens.
Sumit is more than a photographer--he has many passions and talents. After graduating from the University of California San Diego with an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry & Cell Biology, Sumit pursued a second bachelor of science degree in Psychology. Afterward, he attended the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine for his M.D. and the Marshall School of Business for an M.B.A. Sumit's other hobbies include magic, technology, and business. He currently lives in New York, where he will continue to capture the beauty of this dynamic, fast-paced, multicultural state. Connect with Sumit Dua on:
Photoburst is a photo of the day contest focusing on Travel Photography.
Everyday (from the 1st until the 28th), among all images uploaded by our contributors, we publish a photo of the day (POTD).
Every week (on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th), among all POTDs of the preceding week, we select a photo of the week (POTW).
On the 30th we select the best POTW as photo of the month (POTM).
From May 2015 onwards we will cease to award gift certificates to Kiva and guest editorship invitations to our POTM winners. However, occasionally we may accept/address guest editorship proposals, as we strongly believe they are a great way of further involving photographers with Photoburst. Interested? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

... as long as there's an advanced Maths course in a (not necessarily) nearby country. He's known for pushing friends into the most expensive photographic equipment... several family inheritances have been wasted, but they often acknowledge his smart advices. Owner of a clinical eye, he can spot perfection amidst chaos as easily as a small imperfection on a perfect photo. He's also an occasional stork stalker and, above all, a caring father of two beautiful children. Gastão's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... give us a hand. He's our Computer Science genius and is currently addicted to photographing cats. He's a natural born optimist who makes a joke out of anything... don't mess with his Toyota though. Eventually, his stocks will rise from death and he'll invest in livestock and vineyards. He's got highly trained fingers either playing the piano or shortcutting photoshop. We hope he'll stick around after marrying his college sweetheart. In the mean time, he'll dissect every submitted photograph into binary code. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... would only be true if reading travel, geographic and surfing books/magazines accounted some mileage. He checks his e-mail every 2 minutes and he's often seen going cold-turkey when offline. Still divided between several walks of life, he strongly believes in Murphy's law "If anything can go wrong, it will". Photography plays a huge role in his life, at least judging by his conversation topics. Gray hair will eventually take the better of him. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
