How photography found me...
When I was 11 years old, I saw a flock of birds in the sky. For once, in my young life, a split-second scene was imprinted in my mind. From that moment, I was desperate to lay my hands on a camera. And since I was a good kid who usually never asked for anything special, my father bought me a Yashica toy camera.
From that day onwards, my camera was always in my pocket (Was in my pocket whenever I was fortunate enough to have a roll of film), and I became an amateur photojournalist, or so I thought. I dreamt of a career in photography, but at that time, I was 17, and my family urged me to pursue engineering, so that I could enjoy a 'steady career'.
My busy college days kept me away from Yashica, making me restless; so I turned into a gossiping college RJ overnight. I was hugely popular for around 3 weeks, before I got caught. Then I opted for a safer profession - designing valves. For quite some time, I didn't know how to spend my salary. Then my greatest passion crept back into my head - I bought a camera, a classic film SLR. I have been practicing photography as a serious hobby since 2005 and conducted a few photography workshops.
Slowly, I lost interest in valves (I was bored with valves in my வாழ்வு ) and became more absorbed in photography. I wanted to pursue my passion full time.
So I worked up the guts to quit my job and bought myself a swanky professional camera . Now I am pouring my heart into the art of photography & filmaking - by identifying the beauty in people and capturing their finest moments. Of course, when products come along and ask for a portfolio, I joyfully indulge their wishes.
