Coming from a family of doctors, of course I took up Biotechnology in my under graduation. However, I mostly spent time outside appreciating the beauty of nature. My college was located in Vizag, next to a beach and I could not resist myself from capturing the picturesque scenes right in front of my eyes. Fast forwarding eight years from then, I am working as a software engineer at Akamai, Bengaluru, now and alongside started my own photography company with my wife. I wanted to give the creative side of me, a chance to bloom. Travelling helped me broaden my perspective on concepts and composition. And now I can call myself a professional photographer, who through years of experience and practice is doing a good job at meaningfully giving back to the society.
Being an MBA finance graduate and working in KPMG for five years I was destined to continue with the tradition for the rest of my life. However, I realized I wasn’t capturing the creative side of myself. During my school years I pursued arts simultaneously with my studies for around 11 years and attained the accolade of “Chitravisharad Acharya”, i.e. scholar in painting. Hence, the sense of colours and picture composition that I already possessed was further polished. Breaking away from the myths of the Indian society of being in corporate, I finally started a wedding photography company along with my husband. He and I had majorly bonded over travel photography and wildlife. We loved to create travel stories and we realized that we shouldn’t restrict this talent to ourselves. Instead, we decided to reach out to other couples with interesting stories to tell and capture it for them in their weddings.
Living a slow paced life in a village of Tamil Nadu. Having a degree in Journalism, trying to be as close to a non living thing with a Nihilistic ideologies and from being a shy guy who doesn't attend any family get together to shooting weddings. My decisions have always made me question my existence. But when I shoot it feels like tiptoeing into the kitchen late at night and stealing Oreo cookies.
