A biochemist by education. An IT guy, specialized in Hosting and Managed Business Application services, by profession. A self-taught “Maverick” photographer by heart and mind.

Why did i need a camera… I needed to capture my newborn daughter’s cute sweet moments…

What did i do.. researched.. A camera that will let me learn.. When I picked up my first “Good” Bridge camera (are you wondering what a Bridge camera is..Google “Prosumer Camera”), the store-man at the Canon shop said “I am picking a model way above my knowledge/experience area.” This set me going. I invested the open secret “practice makes the photographer perfect”.

Hours, months and years of focused practice and perseverance in self learning many genres of photography gained me the expertise.

Photography is a journey and the travel has taken me to places and put me in situations way beyond my comfort zone..and let me tell you…it’s all worth it when you see the expressions on the faces of friends and family when they view the final images…

Comments like “beautiful”, “wonderful” do not interest me. Tell me what you did/did not find beautiful/wonderful, that will help me learn.

My Gear: Upgraded from the dependable Canon EOS 60D to the amazing Canon EOS 80D and assortment of professional series lenses and speedlites.
I must say I have traveled the journey well and looking forward to many more destinations to explore and learn..

Santhosh, the photographer designate for our Pre-school’s Annual cultural event did a very good job. He was very professional in terms of checking out the venue before the event to figure out where he will be placing the camera, where the stage and audience will be, and so on. I like his close up shots very much. If you brief him well your requirement, you can be sure to get what you want.”

“There are few occasions more meaningful in a child’s life than his or her first birthday. Although no one really remembers his or her first birthday, it marks a special time for family and friends to gather together to celebrate this new little person in their lives. My daughter’s first birthday, the first milestone she crossed, an event so special to us. There are some great pictures Santosh took (its not the camera, its the creative talent he possess) which are so much fun to look back on. What can be more exciting than making memories and letting the little one know how much they mean to us. When I look at those pictures today, I think Aarushi (my daughter) just might be the cutest thing in the entire world. These pics are to be be treasured for ever. Thanks to Santosh and I wish him all the very best for his future endeavours.”

“Santosh Jayaraman, What I can say about this great photographer and a good friend of mine, it was really a pleasure meeting him, when I met him for the first time I wanted to learn more about photography, I still remember that the session was held for 4 hrs but Santosh was very patient enough to resolve all our queries and ended up with 7 hrs session. It’s so easy to get along with him and he is super helpful.
After our first meeting I reach out to him on any minute doubts about photography and we discuss a lot about it. I must admit that this guy knows in and out of photography. I would highly recommend Santhosh to capture the best moments of your life as it cherishes forever, His pictures bring back so many memories that goes all too quickly. It’s wonderful to have such great pictures to look back on. Thank you for being a good friend and a wonderful person. Keep Clicking!!!! Cheers!!!”

Knows about camera very well. Way of teaching or clearing doubts is very good. Got to know the hidden features of my camera.
He is very patient and takes time to explain. Gives you scenarios and also gives solutions with issues you have faced, for example – what you could have done better, when the lighting was bad. Highly Recommended..

Great Mentor!! Santosh’s knowledge around photography & techniques is amazing. He carries his photography passion every moment in his life which in deed makes him a best mentor. During the course, I realized that my gadget can do wonders and my interest levels further elevated in exploring photography. Santosh was flexible and enthusiastic to guide few techniques over the phone to make one of my events successful. His excitement to share his success stories and interesting facts on photography are priceless and inspiring!!!
