Sandeep Maheshwari is a well-known name among the youth of India. He is one of the fastest growing entrepreneurs of India. He is the founder and CEO of Imagesbazaar.com, the largest collection of Indian Stock images, which eliminates the need for brands to conduct their own photo shoot ultimately saving their time and money at the same time. Imagesbazaar has over 1 Million images of Indian models with a network of over 11,500 photographers all over India. Without diving too much into his professional success, what makes him a lot different from other is that he is also a motivational speaker and is known for his ‘Motivational Life Changing Seminars’ to motivate and inspire the minds of the young, that too for free.

Early Age

Sandeep resides in New Delhi, India. When he was 13 years old, his family thought that he would do with his moped(a light two wheeler) that was gifted to him by his father. Little Sandeep would travel and move in Delhi, a city with enormous traffic on roads. Therefore, he learned practicality day by day from the real life situations.

His father was amazed to see that he came up with an idea of making money with his little moped. He rented his scooter to his friend which would take his girl to a ride. Within few months, he was known for renting two-wheeler and was earning Rs 50($0.8) per hour with a condition that the customer had to bear all the fuel expenses! That is, he was now in a complete profit! Yes, don’t be crazy counting the Maintenance expenses. 😀

But a few years later, Sandeep’s father had a tough time in his Aluminium business. All the burden and responsibilities were now shifted to Sandeep’s head. He knew that this is his time to support his family. His time had come at a meagre age of 19. But Mr Maheshwari had a mind of his own and as we all know he tried a number of Businesses and successfully landed at ImagesBazaar.

A Failure – Party Idea Didn’t Work – Sandeep Maheshwari Wiki

In 1999, Sandeep got an idea to make money. He with approached by an unknown but kind looking guy. They both decided to do something creative and be business partners. They organised a New Year Party Bash. Both of them were connected while the preparation was done. Everything went Better than they expected! Sandeep named it ‘DIX 2000’. Everything went awesome. They both earned Rs 50,000 ($800) and the plan was to divide the total profit into 2 equal parts.

His conscience pricked him that he was not able to find the person who organised the event with him! He contacted his Phone, but it was Switched Off. He looked him everywhere but couldn’t find any clue of him. This left him completely baffled. He went to the Party’s Manager and got to know that their ‘Payment‘ for the event has been taken by the other event handler. He ran away with the Cash! Poor Maheshwari worked diligently on the event. But Maheshwari was cheated and the other ‘kind’ looking person took the bag with money and never contacted Maheshwari.

Maheshwari knew that this life event had some importance. He got back home and started dancing thinking that this event would lead to something Awesome! He was thrilled that Now this time he had worked hard, maintained his inner Critique and Still got Betrayed! This means that Yes, he is still learning!

Portfolio Company Start Up

Sandeep Maheshwari Wiki continues. He had a small spark in his mind, he started his career as a model at the age of 19. It was then he noticed the harassment and annoying environment that Indian models had to live in. He was moved by this and decided to do something about it. Instead of working harder and getting better academic grades, he dropped out of Kirorimal College (nowadays better known as Delhi University) in the 3rd year of B.com, to help those struggling models with the environment they had to live in.

It’s easy to imagine now that this was a Good decision, but looking back then when he had no money in his pocket and was a man full of ambitions, dropping out from college seems way more challenging!

‘I haven’t completed my graduation because I felt it wasn’t adding anything of any value’ said Mr Sandeep Maheshwari.

Turning Point In Life – Guinness World Record

Sandeep Maheshwari Wiki - Guinness World Record - Startup Archive

After a two week course in photography, he purchased a camera worth Rs 12,000 ($200). With fear and a mission in mind, he started port folioing models at very minimal rates. Then he had to face another problem, that is the Modelling agencies wanted the photographer to be great and renowned. All models came to Maheshwari asking for his milestones and poor Maheshwari had no reply. Sandeep knew that now he has to do something big.

This time Sandeep had an enormous goal in mind, that is to increase his popularity among modelling agencies, aimed at creating a world record.

Again a Speed Breaker – Sandeep Maheshwari Wiki

He again met with a problem. All the expenses needed to break the record was totaling around Rs 5,00,000 including the hotel rent and food. It was this time when his experience came into play. And I should better relate this to one of the Best Quotes of Steve Jobs:

Sandeep Maheshwari Wiki - Steve Jobs Qoute applicable on Sandeep - Startup Archive

Because he had previously organised the DIX 2000 event, he was now ready to show his management skills. His experience helped him a lot to save both money and time.

This is where the Real Action happens! His life events just like ‘Dots’ mentioned by Steve Jobs connected and which lead to ImagesBazaar, most successful Stock Photography Company in India!

‘He has also achieved a Guinness World Record in Photography for creating 10,000+ images of 120+ models in 12 hours which he easily completed in 10 hours.’

Founding Million Dollar Company – ImagesBazaar

Sandeep Maheshwari Wiki - Sandeep Maheshwari founded ImagesBazaar - Startup Archive

He continued his Entrepreneurial journey and founded Imagesbazaar.com, a stock portfolio company. Because he had a small setup, he did multi-tasking. He was the photographer, telephone-caller, counselor etc. The task seemed innumerable. People came and got attached to his company’s culture and professional behavior, that I recall him saying

“Some people are so dependent on ImagesBazaar, that they are addicted to it. If we close down the website for even a week, calls and messages would start pouring in, seeking where is the Team of ImagesBazaar?” – Said Mr Sandeep Maheshwari

Sandeep Maheshwari Wiki - Sandeep Maheshwari founded ImagesBazaar

This is simply because of the fact that he solved a humungous problem for Companies. That is, back those days in 2007-08, companies would have to do real work to create advertisements. And right from the start they would consult models, make agreements, conduct shoots, edit images and then publish them in their Advertisements which would also cost the companies a fortune.

He solved this problem and eliminated the need for companies to conduct professional photo shoots for models, thereby, reducing their time and money to a great extent. All this hassle was solved by creating ImagesBazaar, an Indian Stock Photography website which was special over others.

He says that the work ethic in their Company is Excellent. Nobody gets fired. Even the menial workers who’ve joined the company from day 1 are still working with them.

They completey transformed the industry for Models, which were prone to many problems such as Mistreatment, lower pay that agreed and even Continuity of Advertisements after the contract terms.

Sandeep Maheshwari Transformed all of this via ImagesBazaar!

He paved his way forward to make Imagesbazaar the World’s Largest Collection of Indian Images. With an over a million images and over 7500 clients over 45 countries, Imagesbazaar was a Rs 10.2 crore company ( $1.6 Million) in the year 2010.

Due to the scarcity of statistics provided by the company, we can’t precisely estimate it’s current value but it should lies somewhere between Rs 100 Crore to Rs 120 Crore.

Imagesbazaar was one of those 753 companies which were competing against each other. But with their continued hard work they have achieved #1 rank in term of Indian images. The site is also starting with 3D Photography.

Sandeep Maheshwari’s Life Mantra – Aasaan Hai! (Life is Easy!)

Aasaan Hai Life is Easy - Sandeep Maheshwari Wiki - Startup Archive

He says “Aasaan Hai”, Life is Easy! All of us are aware of the Quotation:

He says whenever you feel that something you Dream of, seems out of your reach, simple put Aasaan Hai! there. Yes! It’s that simple. He says people Underestimate its power but this simple quotation has Changed his whole life.

He still prefers to lead a simple yet inspirational life with his family. He says you earn money to buy happiness but what if happiness comes straight away without spending too much?
