The 3 ‘i” Methodology!!

Why mentoring..

Have been pursuing photography as a hobby since my childhood and Year 2006 was the point when the hobby turned into serious passion. I have dwelled in various genres of photography, experimenting, practicing and fine tuning my skills. My favorites being portraiture and landscape and floral close ups.

I love to share not only my vast practical knowledge on Photography but also my extensive field experiences with my Photography Gear.

Join me on various customised courses, prepared with great care, keeping your specific experience levels, interests, and camera system in mind.

Each category focuses on course plans designed to give you comprehensive exposure to photography concepts, introduces you to various genres of photography and gives you deep insights into your creative side and also your camera gear.
Class room sessions embedded with practical discussions makes it a wholesome experience for you and inspires you to go out and make photos. I strongly recommend and teach the Art of Visualization, which positively effects your creative pursuit.

You have invested multiple thousands of your hard earned money in your camera and still stuck to that “Green Rectangle”!! Why??
The Camera is a wonderful Eye but it does not know what it should see or how on its own (even though camera makers are coming up with wonderful algorithms for this). You should decide what it should shoot and how..

My mission – to make you a better photographer through the 3 “i” methodology..

Initiate, Inspire, Innovate!!

Visual Authors impart customized learning (introduction/foundation/advanced) sessions and progressive mentorship. Training sessions will be held at your convenient time and pace. The pace of learning will be determined solely by your interest level.

The objectiveto move you away from the dreaded “Green Rectangle – the full auto mode” and guide you to explore other Advanced Auto modes, Manual AE(s) and Full Manual mode and all the other features of your camera system that will help you learn and love photography. The camera is never at fault unless there is a serious hardware issue. It is our lack of understanding of the camera’s functionalities and shortcomings which could be the hurdle we need to cross..and I will enlighten you on this as well.

Your 1st DSLR but not sure which one to buy..or is it an upgrade to the next level..I will help you decide…

The mentoring will address You as a photographer, Your Camera system – camera, lens, and speedlite (onboard or external) and Photography – how you would want to make your camera system deliver images as envisioned in your mind.
In short, you will learn how to make your camera see and guide it to shoot amazing images..

As you grow in your photography endeavors, I continue to address your questions on future camera/lens upgrades and/or any queries on photography that you may have at that time..thus sealing a long lasting relationship..
