Vetrikodi Kattu – A talk show on our KLR the photo guru YouTube channel with Pon Prabakaran : a freelance photographer from Chennai who has bagged the “Better Photography Wedding Photographer of the Year (2018 -2019) Category: Photo series on a single wedding ” award
The interview spans through his life journey as a Documentary wedding photographer showcasing close to 40 of his works detailing about the techniques, experiences and ultimately to the recent award which serves as an inspiration to many budding photographers.
Starting off my career as a part-timer in a studio during my college days, I was drawn into photography while editing photos taken in the studio. As days went by, my interest in photography grew and I became passionate about it. I continued learning more and made many friends in the process. The past eight years have been truly enriching as far as the experience I gained go. As days turned into months and months into years, I realized wedding photojournalism is my forte, my strong point. Trying to break free from the mainstream wedding photography, I realized capturing special moments at weddings from a different perspective is a lot more satisfying. I’ve always felt the best way to shoot wedding photographs is when the people are not posing for the camera, resulting in photos filled with soul and honest emotions.
