WPAI Connect x Bangalore Roundup
Here’s what happened in Bangalore’s first WPAI Connect event
The first ever WPAI Connect event in Bangalore was a huge success! We had a great crowd of talented photographers and cinematographers ready to share and learn. Check out this short video to see more of the event:
We had an engaging panel discussion and an informative presentation followed by an interactive mixer over food and drinks. The panelists comprised of four very well-known names in the wedding photography industry – Rimi Sen, Neeta Shankar, Mahesh Shantaram and Anbu Jawahar. The discussion touched on topics relevant to the wedding photography industry today and was moderated by Arjun Kartha. 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 keeping the client happy and also touched upon the topic of style and branding in wedding photography. 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 wedding photographer and Fujifilm brand ambassador Chenthil Mohan. Chenthil spoke about his journey as a photographer and his beliefs and vision for his work. He emphasised that “photography is a lot more than just making money”. To be a great photographer, he said, one should practice their art even while not getting paid for it. He also advised on learning the history of photography in addition to just learning about the business of photography. The session by Chenthil Mohan was followed by a mixer over food and drinks. It was great to see the photography community come together to 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 four more cities – Mumbai, Hyderabad, Kochi, and Pune – in the coming months. Watch this space for more!
