A snapshot of an photographer

Badri poundareegapuram Narayanan, known as Badri PN among his friends and business acquaintances, is a Mechanical Engineer turned photographer. But Badri is not any Mechanical Engineer. He is a Master in production engineering from Madurai’s famed Thiagarajar college of engineering.

After doing a short stint as a production engineer and as a professor in a college, Badri discovered that his passion lay elsewhere. He found out that he had an eye for photography,
and capturing moments was his calling.

Badri says that his love for photography goes back to his school days. ‘I used to experiment with my Konica film camera. I didn’t know composition, rules of third or any such thing then.
I just wanted to take interesting pictures.’

Badri is now an upcoming independent photographer running his own studio called ‘Studio Badri’. He has turned his once bedroom into a modern air-conditioned studio replete with professional cameras, studio lights and a dressing room. It’s only a few minutes away from the Velachery MRTS station.

His studio offers the space for product photography, fashion shoots and model portfolios.
But his passion for photography goes beyond the confines of a controlled setting. He has also done wedding photography, corporate shoots and event coverages, both big and small.

Badri handled the photo coverage of the English play ‘Cinderella’ featuring actor Ganesh Venkatraman and actress Aishwarya Rajesh. He was also the brains behind the motion vfx and the led backdrop story at the event.

In 2014, his picture titled ‘Monsoon starts’ was published in an international street photography magazine. In another edition, the magazine also carried his photo series captioned ‘Leg’. His work has also appeared in various local newspapers.

When asked the cliche question ‘where do you see yourself in 5 years’, Badri said that he would like to start a creative agency that offers turnkey digital image solutions. In fact, Studio Badri is already making efforts to become a multimedia service centre. It offers design, VFX, video editing and powerpoint presentation for everything under the sun.
