WPAI Connect x Delhi Roundup
Here’s what happened in the first of the series of WPAI Connect meet-ups
The first of the WPAI Connect events, attended by the who’s who of the wedding photography community in Delhi, was a huge success. We had a great crowd of about a hundred talented photographers and cinematographers ready to share, learn and listen.
Check out this short video to see more about the event:
We had an interesting panel discussion followed by a knowledge session and an interactive mixer over food and drinks. The panelists comprised of four very well-known names in the wedding photography industry – Karan Sidhu, Snigdha Sheel, Badal Jain and Harsheen Jammu. Moderated by Arjun Kartha, the discussion touched on topics relevant to the wedding photography industry today.
The over-arching theme of the discussion was – An art form or a service: Where does wedding photography stand today and where is it going? The panelists also discussed topics like how to satisfy your artistic sensibilities while also keeping the client happy and touched upon the topic of awards as motivation. The panel discussion was followed by an interactive Q&A session between the panelists and the attendees.
The next session was an informative presentation by well-known photographer and panoramist Amit Pasricha. Amit spoke about his journey as a photographer and his philosophies and vision for his work. He emphasised that panoramic work is not about picture perfect images. It’s rather about interplays and about trying to fool the eyes into a make-believe world. He also spoke about the idea of the man and the cosmos and the fact that how something that we consider to be significant, let’s say the Taj Mahal, becomes insignificant under the eyes of our observation.
The session by Amit Pasricha was followed by a mixer over food and drinks. It was a great opportunity for the photography community to come under one roof and share knowledge and experiences.
Thank you all for your overwhelming support and participation in making this event a big one! It’s only going to get bigger and better from here! To those who couldn’t make it, we missed you and we hope to see you in the coming events.
We have WPAI Connect events lined up for six more cities – Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kochi, Chennai, and Pune – in the coming few months. Watch this space for more!
The WPAI would like to acknowledge the support from Fujifilm India for this event. Thank you!
