Introduction: A passion for people photography, and a genuine desire and ability to have my pictures reflect the personality of a individual,is my biggest strength. When I am not photographing people for paid sessions you are most likely to find me clicking random strangers for my Portrait of a Stranger project. I have no qualms about admitting that there may be far technically superior photographers but if you hire me I will assure you that you will be my most important assignment. Creating cookie-cutter snapshots of a individual I admittedly fail at. Each individual is unique and each face has its own story and having the pictures reflect that is what I strive for. Working with you each step of the way to ensure that you receive exceeds your expectation will be my highest priority. "You capture the essence of an individual" is how people have described my work. Interacting with people and collaborating with them to ensure they look exactly as they perceive themselves is what gives me most satisfaction. Often, even when I am not photographing, I can't help observe people and visualizing how they would look in a picture based on the light conditions and surroundings. Its difficult to express how I feel when a person looks at a picture of them that I have clicked and has a gleaming smile. That in itself makes my journey as a photographer completely worth it.

It's pretty awesome to have connected with Vijay on an absolute whim! Our company could not have been more pleased with his professionalism, talent and overall kindness throughout this process.

Wedding and Event Photography

Vijay was an absolute pleasure to work with! Firstly, his photography style is timeless and natural. His work-ethic and attention to detail is impeccable. He held my hand through every single shot, and was very clear with instructions for posed shots (extremely appreciated as a stressed-out bride). He captured the most amazing moments during my wedding that my husband and I will cherish forever. Even our guests were impressed with Vijay’s professionalism; many asked for his information and we happily obliged. Everything about him and his company is 10/10. He is our forever photographer!

Portrait Photography

I am launching a new business and needed employee portraits for the website site as well as stylized photographs of the office. Vijay was a pleasure to work with from the initial contact to the final result. We especially appreciated how he took time to understand our vision/branding and make each of us feel comfortable so that the pictures would capture us in a natural way rather than stiff or overly posed. He checked in and communicated consistently to make sure our expectations and needs were being met throughout. His service fees were beyond reasonable for the scope of work we received. We will absolutely use him again

Vijay was a delight to work with! Through the entire process from our initial discussions, setting up the right time/place for the photo session, our meeting and then his extra patience while I was reviewing and choosing photos, Vijay was extraordinarily professional, kind and helpful. I would not hesitate for a second recommending him!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is based on a individual need basis and is customized accordingly. The quote I provide is an estimate and will be refined based on understanding the specific needs of the request. It is inclusive of a session fee that could vary between $75 to $125 depending on various factors such as length of the session, members involved, distance etc. Also included are hi-res digital images provided via digital share or memory stick - the cost varies for these varies from $75 to $200 - depending on the number of edited images. I also provide the option of purchasing a individual image which usually turns out to be a more expensive but allows the customer to only pick what they like.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Once I am approached for an assignment I like to connect with the customer - in person or on the phone - to get a clear understanding of the requirements and expectations. If whatever reason I do not believe I am best suited for the job I am completely transparent about it with the customer - I believe it is the best interest for both parties since I am establishing a relation. If we mutually agree that I am appropriate person for the job, we go ahead and set up a time-slot and location for the shoot. From that point forward till the shoot I stay very engaged addressing any queries, providing suggestions on colors, locations and any additional information that is needed. More importantly I think this is necessary to establish a rapport with the people you are photographing - often that is the difference between a flat two dimensional image vs the personality. Post the shoot based on customer preference I provide a viewing gallery and allow them to pick the select number of images which I then work on and provide to the customer. My usual turnaround time is a quick preview image within 2 days and the rest within a week to 10 days. As a bonus - if there are additional images that the customer likes I offer them free in their unedited raw form

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a self-taught photographer who took to the camera as a way to connect with my creative side many years ago. One thing led to another and my hobby became my passion and passion turned to a part-time profession that I immensely enjoy. Of course, having said that I have constantly worked and pursued learning and improving my skills as far as the genre of my choice i.e people portaiture of all kinds is concerned, through a series of workshops and online courses - but really by working with people
