Anbu Jawahar is an artist by training, a designer by profession, and a photographer by aptitude. He began using an analog SLR while in college and maintained his interest in photography over the years while he proceeded through other visual media- dabbling in video production, learning digital editing and finally, multi-media design.

Anbu loves using technology and gadgets. Digital photography nurtures a happy marriage between the various skills and preferences that Anbu has acquired over the years. His style of photography melds the techniques of the different media he has worked in, with his formative training as an artist. The influence of the different media on his work is especially apparent in the composition and post-processing of his photographs.

Anbu took to full-time photography in 2010, deciding to focus on weddings and portraiture. Given that he is very social and yet can be an unobtrusive presence, he is able to participate in as well as capture those fleeting moments in a wedding ceremony that make for wonderful memories. He also loves to bring romance into his work, both in terms of subjects as well as treatment, and works with couples to bring this aspect to the fore.

Anbu loves all things new: people, technology, gadgets, whatever. It is this restless search for the new in all things that motivates him to try different things and makes him a good learner as well. He constantly tries to update himself; sourcing inspiration, tips and techniques from other photographers all around the world and from the world wide web. And the search is on.
