I am Karthik Rajagopal a professional wedding photographer and a filmmaker. I am a qualified Mechanical Engineer and an alumni of SP Jain Institute of Management & Research. I started my career as a Research and Development engineer at L&T and engineering was my profession until April 2014 when I mustered my guts to quit engineering and follow my passion on photography. From that day I have been a full time professional photographer and filmmaker.
I have been practiced photography as serious hobby since 2005 and the passion still continues in my commercial work. I have shot over 200 weddings in the last 5 years apart from my assignments doing portraiture, product photography and documentary films. I practiced photography as serious hobby since 2005 and it still continues as a passionate work.
Apart from being a commercial photographer I have been conducting photography workshops from 2011. I have conducted more than 30 workshops so far. For my workshops I have associated with brands like Sony, Fujifilm, Zeiss, PhaseOne, Sigma, Profoto, Godox and Phottix to name a few. I also review gear and publish as blogs and started doing Youtube videos of late. A strong foundation on the concepts of photography, lighting and technical aspects of how a camera works helps me handle any workshops or gear review with ease.
By nature I love meeting people and I enjoy shooting them. So my personal character extends to my commercial work & I completely focus on wedding photography and portraits.
