This is one of my favorite genres of photography. I love to shoot weddings. It's my endeavor to create special images which will provide a lifetime of wonderful memories for my clients. My shooting theme is 'Friends and Family', where the focus is on the couple's immediate family and close friends. There is an element of a few posed pictures and a lot of humorous and quirky moments of the wedding are captured. I am a wedding photo journalist and have developed an 'arty' shooting style to capture the entire drama and the emotions of the wedding in a candid way. I love to work closely with the couple and do my very best on their special day. Each and every wedding for me is unique. My home state of Goa has got great locations and I usually do some special pictures of 'couples only', few days after the wedding and shoot beach pictures, sunset shots and capture other intimate pictorial moments for the couple in their bridal attire. The final photographs are presented to the couple in a custom made leather album complete with the names of the couple and the wedding date embossed in gold.
Interior & Industrial Photography
Compared to the hustle and bustle of wedding photography, this is a more relaxed albeit highly specialized genre of photography. Interior photography is my forte and I have done shoots for major hotels in my state like Intercontinental, The Leela, Hyatt, Marriot etc. I capture all the elements of the hotel right from rooms, concierge to Food & Beverage pictures. It's my job to enhance the features of the property. I have detailed meeting with the various department heads of the resort that I am shooting to get an insight into making the resort look at its best in the pictures. This is a very challenging aspect of photography. I get a lot of happiness when I manage to get a good picture done in difficult lighting conditions.
I do all kinds of event photography such as conferences, product launches, christenings, family pictures etc. I take pride in working in an unobtrusive manner and get the best results without coming in the way of the occasion. I have covered the Fifth International Energy Conference in Goa, India in December 1996, featuring Oil Ministers from all over the world. Former President Bill Clinton's visit. Christmas and New Year balls, conferences by companies like Intel, DHL, FedEx, ICICI Bank, Standard Chartered, Nokia, Vodafone, Larsen & Toubro, Bose Corporation, HDFC bank, Ranbaxy, Kirloskars, Hindustan Lever etc.
