1) Hi Nirmalya its an honor for me to introduce a brilliant photographer like you to my readers. Nirmalya say something about you and your background?
Hello. Its truly an honor for me. And I thank the team of Indiacafe24.com and the beloved readers for bestowing this honor to me.
I am just a simple guy with big dreams, trying to capture moments in a Grand way. I have always been in love with Visual Arts, be it movies, videogames, graphic design or photography. A 3D Animation Artist by training and profession, photography has been my passion for a long time. I used to carry my 8 MP digital camera with me everywhere, trying to capture anything and everything that fancied my eyes. I would try to capture group pictures and portraits of my friends in different experimental ways. Sometimes they would get fed up with me, but they allowed me. It was just a matter of time that I would turn this passion into profession. Now, I am a full fledged professional photographer, catering to clients across India and across cultures.
2) How photography came in your life?
My first introduction with imaging technology was when I was a child. My dad had returned from an official tour with a Yashica camera for me. It was a film camera. I had a blast with it, though in those days, it was an expensive proposition because of the cost of the films, and developing and printing. But inspite of that, I enjoyed photography a lot. Then in 2008, after I joined my first job, I bought my first digital camera. An 8 Megapixel Nikon L18. I had been a Nikon guy since then. With digital camera, I was able to click away to my mind’s content. And now, it has gone to quite another level.
3) You specialized yourself in wedding photography, so why wedding snaps attracts you most?
I love the emotional connection of the lives involved in a wedding, and capturing those emotional moments in a bride or groom’s life, is in my opinion, a privilege in itself. Because those moments are one of the very few special moments in a person’s life. Also I find wedding photography quite challenging. Unlike studio photography, a wedding photographer doesn’t get very many chances to click an event or a special moment. And capturing that special moment at the very first opportunity, is quite a challenging task. Its what makes wedding a lot of fun. Also its a great way of making new friends. To this day, I am friends with every couple I photographed, and it’s the best privilege of all.
