We had the good fortune of connecting with Gautham Dharmaseelan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Gautham, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Choose the precise area of photography in which you want to excel. This could be any kind of photography that interests you, including commercial, portrait, or wedding photography.

Your goals, target market, pricing, marketing plans, and financial projections can all be defined with the use of a business plan.

To market your company and get customers, use networking, advertising, and social media. Attend trade exhibitions, events, and networking gatherings to network and meet possible clients.

Although it can be difficult to launch a photography business, it is feasible to do it with the correct knowledge, resources, and tactics.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
To differentiate themselves from others, photographers frequently work to build their own distinctive style and perspective. This could entail using a certain compositional strategy, lighting setup, subject matter, or post-processing methods. Photographers can produce an identifiable and memorable body of work by establishing a distinctive style.

The road to success in photography, like any creative industry, can be difficult. Common challenges include competition, customer acquisition, self-doubt, and juggling artistic expression with business sustainability. It frequently takes perseverance, resilience, adaptability, and a desire to learn from mistakes and defeats to overcome these obstacles.

Photographers frequently gain important knowledge while traveling. These might include the significance of one’s own vision, the value of narrative, the necessity of ongoing progress, and the delicate balance between artistic expression and customer expectations.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
The center of any city is where you may always find interesting people and new things to learn. a location where all civilizations are present in one location.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would say that every opportunity I had aided in my knowledge acquisition. My devoted parents and other members of my family, who helped me along the way, deserve all the credit.
