How a student become a wedding photographer
Giri Stills Journey
From my childhood, I had my own way of seeing things in life and my view or my perspective didn't change. I loved the world with how I saw it. Later during my high-school, I got an idea like why don't others see the world as I see? This idea continued to stick on to my mind and wanted to explore my options to implement my idea. That's when photography grabbed my interest, and after I got a camera, that's when I fell in love with that art from what could it do. Later as my life prolonged, my father started to see the man in me. As my life transformed with all it could teach and I too groomed with what I learnt from life. Though I had my life find a firm place to stand on, my passion for the photography, the passions for allowing others to see the world and it's beauty through my lens, did not die. I started my career in videography, as a freelancer, with a profound rejection for my Wife's idea for me to do a business. Those where the times, I learned a lot about the technology in improving how I visualize what I could see. I was more concerned on honing my skills in that field and did what all I could and learnt what and from where all I could. As time flowed by as a stream of water, the ripples of the waves dragged my mind into photography.
Not Only India
We got many projects in many places like Tiruppur-Coimbatore-Bangalore-TN-Gujarat-Rajastan-Delhi...etc. We were not and did not seem done with those and continued our work to earn more projects from overseas like Sri Lanka, Australia and Singapore. With all those badges and reputations hanging on our shirts, we established Giri Stills.
25 years Experience with 3560 weddings
With celebration of our 25th anniversary on 2016 with 3560 Weddings, I got the nostalgia of all those difficult times where we crossed many hurdles and all the tough times we had gone through with that persistence still burning in the mind.
Team Hard work
I can't still figure out if it was my perspective or any inspiration that changed the way I saw everything. There were moments that still staying in my heart as a scar, triggering a sweet sensation in my nerves. That's when the art of photography inspired me much more. I then captured all my happy moments on a sheet of paper, from the time I learnt the art. Here now I am with all the time, money and effort put it and not gone waste, established my name with carving a niche for myself with my hard work, luck, patience and most importantly my one and only wife who has my heart and soul safe and sound. Then I open my wings and flapped them with all my strength to earn projects all over India and even overseas. I still have that sweet smile of astonishment where I am right now, whenever I get the nostalgia of my start. I was there standing with an old Pantec Camera and 4 of my buddies. Now I’m the one who is having all the latest cameras like 1DX Mark II for wedding photography, Red Dragon for Corporate videos, 4k cameras to shoot the wedding in Coimbatore. Innovation and sincerity was what I saw that brought me to how I am by transforming and reforming me constantly.
