Shooting from my heart!
At a very early age I was totally inspired by my father who was a professional photographer and the proprietor of Omni Studio in Pondicherry.
When I first stepped into my father's studio at the age of nine, I recall standing on a high chair and looking through the viewfinder.
This was soon followed by the magic of watching the image appear from under that warm flowing liquid of the developer.
I probably decided from that moment, to become a photographer.
I would do anything and make any excuse to be in the studio; sweeping floors, cutting prints, clean trays and handing over prints to the customers.
I later enrolled for a course in Loyola College at Chennai to study ‘Visual Communication’, followed by few years working as an assistant with
renowned photographers Iqbal K Mohamed and Satyajit. I also completed a full-time Photography course at Light & Life Academy, Ooty.
My ability to transform an ‘everyday look’ to a beautiful and glamorous work of art is what drives my passion for photography and
allows me to shoot from my heart . . .
