I get inspired by Tamil cinema, Chennai, life with family and friends, social media, and the need for change. Emotions and human connections have been my motivation to pursue photography in a candid format. My aim is to document memories rather than produce memorabilia.
Like many other millennial South-Indian twenty-something youth, I pursued mechanical engineering, gaining expertise on the job with coding, software, and the like. I also landed at a leading MNC in Chennai for a while. But as we speak, I can tell you, my heart lay elsewhere, not in code or the cubicles. This took me to my dream world of capturing life through my lens. My worldview shifted from being grey and monotonous to colourful and filled with surprises.
What started as a hobby is now my life and career. I am fortunate to capture many intimate and precious moments through my lens and I must say, I enjoy every single bit of it. I like walking the journey of a couple’s big day or a mother’s love for her children. I do not mind the hours or the tedious planning, the smiles on my client’s faces or the love they receive from their near and dear ones make it all worth it. Events like weddings, dance performances and the like have given me an opportunity to refine and pursue candid photography in the finest of its features. Rare moments lie in those that include every single detail. A keen eye and the right timing to these details are skills that I am constantly striving to improve every step of the way.
I am liberal with my work. Please don’t hesitate to ask me questions or leave me a note. Thank you for stopping by. Hope to hear from you constantly.
