Photography is always an aspiring career option for anyone interested in the art of seeing and storytelling. It has become a stable profession now…as the need for a good photographer is in high demand.
There are a lot of photographers earning higher than the standard academic persons doing routine jobs.
Most important quality to pursue and be successful in photography is ‘passion for the art’ A passionate person can dedicate his/her time effectively in learning and become useful.
They must be willing to work 24X7 with a target to achieve
Though photography is a lot of fun, it should be learned and practiced seriously. Persons with an artistic bent of mind and who think out of the box have a better chance to become successful professionals. In the present scenario, they must be willing to learn throughout their life and update the technology and trend.
There is nothing like ‘self taught’ in photography. We pick
up lot of information from other photographers and their photos. Internet,
You-tube, books, are other sources photographers learn and update. This helps
the self taught photographers to do some trial and error basis learning. But as
the need of today, a good photography school can help the students in the
following five ways.
The learners are given ample scope to understand
all the possible technics and art through the structured curriculum
A formal education gives lot of self confidence and helps to solve the
problems thrown at them quickly and efficiently.
A formal education makes learning fast and reduces the possibilities of mistakes that
happens otherwise. For example, a phot ographer who has attended a formal
course will be able to master the technics, art and business in a couple of
years. Whereas, others may take years to achieve the same through a lot of
trials and guess work.
Most importantly, a good photography school can
give hands-on experience on some of
the expensive and rare state of the art
equipment, facilities, special skills and real time job experience.
A formal education gives an opportunity to develop contacts and network for
business developments in the initial stage of the career.
These opportunities may or may not happen even after a long
time for a self-learned photographer.
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.
