Nachiket started his career assisting Binod Pradhan for 4 years on 7 films including Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, 2 States, Baaghi. 
His latest projects include 'Half Love Half Arranged' an Amazon Prime show; 'Baby Crasto', a yet-to-be-released feature film produced by Golden Ratio Films starring Supriya Pathak, Neil Bhoopalam and Vaibhav Raj Gupta and Made in Heaven Season 2.
He was also the second Unit DoP on 'Rashmi Rocket' , 'Chehre' , '4 More Shots S1 and S2' and YRF film 'Maharaja'. 
He was intricately involved in the prep for Mirziya and Aarya (which many years later turned into the web-series which he is not a part of).

Nachiket obtained his diploma in Cinematography from Whistling Woods International, Mumbai in 2010. He then graduated from the University of Hertfordshire, UK in 2011 under their BA (Hon) Film and TV course.
After university, he got an opportunity to travel and document a one of a kind expedition headed by Swedish explorer, Johan Ernst Nilson called Pole2Pole. Mr. Nilson was travelling from the North Pole to the South Pole using non-motorised transport like walking, cycling, skiing, sailing etc. Nachiket was on the North, Central and South America leg of the expedition for 9 months in 2011-2012 and was the one man support team, photographer and filmmaker on the expedition. The expedition was sponsored by AUDI, Zenith, Ramlosa, North Face amongst others.

On the work front, Nachiket has also shot TVCs, music videos, documentaries and corporate films in India and abroad.

Having been on projects in various parts of the world, he not only has experience but is comfortable dealing with international teams especially in UK, South America, Thailand and Europe.

Inspired by the likes of Janusz Kaminski, Emmanuelle Lubezki, VK Murthy, Binod Pradhan; Nachiket's camerawork is ripe with well composed ultra wide angle frames with varying contrast in lighting that sets the required mood for the given project. He also works extensively with natural light and has been developing a 'flexible and fast' way of cinematography. Nachiket does not set a standard style to his images, but rather lets the script and the story dictate what the cinematography should be. He is extremely flexible and is very collaborative when it comes to working with the director, producer and other members of the team. 
Nachiket has worked on and is comfortable shooting on any modern camera system and can shoot on 35mm and 16mm film cameras as well.

Having travelled to 39 countries in the world, he has collected a varied worldview which helps him understand storytelling better. He is an avid wildlife filmmaker and is not afraid to go into gruelling or otherwise dangerous locations; he is also a certified Advanced Open Water Scuba Diver.
