Aim for a perfect frame!
It’s been more than a decade that he’s been capturing and creating some of the best moments for newly weds which are now framed as memories. Vinu Paravoor is a popular wedding photographer who worked as a graphic designer before he started operating a camera. For Vinu, getting into photography was the biggest turning point in his life. His forte is wedding and candid photography, however, he is also a fashion photographer.

“I always keep experimenting with new things in photography. I look through the vision of the camera and try to get the best picture possible,” he says adding, “It feels good when I get an idea and a photograph is something unique and out of the box.”

Capturing the expressions and moments at about two hundred weddings in the South, he says that he would like to click different wedding traditions from different states of India.

On what makes his photographs different from others, he says, “I look into the works of some of the international photographers for inspiration, however my work doesn’t reflect what they do with their photographs. I focus on what I want to get out of a particular frame. I have always worked on and look into what makes me feel happy about my clicks and that’s what makes my photographs unique. I believe in creating moments.”

Most of his photographs are taken using the Canon 5d Mark 3. Recollecting the first photograph he took, he says, “It was a wedding at Kochi. It was my first professional shoot and I gained a lot of knowledge and experience from it. I am passionate about photography and whatever I have learnt till now is all self-taught. I push myself to do something different for each wedding shoot and try not to repeat ideas. I really enjoy doing it.”

He aspires to be among Bengaluru’s top wedding photographers. Remembering the days when he first started using the camera, he says, “I had no mentor to guide me and all of this started with self interest. It was a little difficult to catch up and figure out the difference between the various cameras and lenses. However, today things are under my control and a lot smoother.”

And what was the biggest challenge that he faced as a wedding photographer? “The biggest challenge that I have faced and sometimes still face is to make couples comfortable with each other and convince them for a particular kind of shot. Especially when it is an outdoor post-wedding shoot, there tend to be a lot of poses that the couple has to give and this makes them conscious about their surroundings and the people around them.” He adds, “Nevertheless most of these shots turn out to be candid which looks natural and excellent. And I make sure they feel comfortable during the shoot.”
