Venu got interested in photographic art and technique when he saw stunning images of renowned photographers in Kannada weekly magazine ‘Sudha’, way back in seventies and used to eagerly wait for getting the weekly magazine. He used to wonder how they captured those pictures! Interested in all kinds of photography, his heart lies in pictorial photography which provides freedom to mix and match elements and colors on the frame just like a painter. While appreciating nature, he uses this media to expose beautiful things of nature. Engineer by profession, he picked up his hobby during his college days but shelved it as he was not able to cope with it and later due to work pressure which is of technical nature. Ironically he has started the same hobby as ”stress buster” which keeps him away from hectic work. Whole hearted support from the family has made his hobby more enjoyable.
