My name is Mahesh and I am from Chennai, India. Basically, I am a software engineer and an amateur photographer. I have been taking pictures around 6 years now. I love people and street photography. I shoot close portraits and trying to capture street moments.

I learn day by day through watching masters pictures and trying to produce better picture. I prefer black and white when it comes to Portraits and street moments and I also do color pictures if colors play important role.

I love photography from my college days. I use to shoot with my friend’s film camera during our tour in college days. But, I never thought I would get into serious photography until 2008. I started photography in 2008 to stress out the hectic corporate life. But, then it becomes serious passion.

I took photographs of everything which I felt was beautiful. I shot macro, nature, landscape, etc. but it did not seem to satisfy me much. I then realized my interest was towards people photography and it soon became a passion.

That is when I started taking close portraits and want to present them in Black and White. Most of my portraits are taken in the streets of India, with available ambient natural light. I strive to portray their inner heart and soul through the expressions in the eyes. I believe that through the subject’s eyes and expression, one can get a feeling of the person’s emotions, state of mind, happiness or sorrow. It is my goal to make portraits which will connect the viewers and the subjects directly.

I believe in certain aspects in any genre of photography. A great picture should have a strong content and nice way to present it with a beautiful composition and light. The picture would become great, If photographer can connect its viewer to the picture and make them communicate. I am trying to achieve this.[Official Website]
