My Story

 

my story

 

If the quantity & quality of light on the subject is poor then it doesn’t matter how good the composition, posing, lens technique or the location is because understanding & executing light is what separates a good photographer from the crowd.

Hi ! My name is Varun Jain, I am a Wedding Photographer & the owner of Varun Jain Photography operating from Bombay (Mumbai), Delhi, Pune & Bangalore (Bengaluru). You must have heard quite a few stories recently about young entrepreneurs quitting their full time day job to pursue their passion, the same way, after working almost for 8 years in J.P. Morgan as a Team Leader, I realised it was time to give my love for photography worth a shot. With the support of my loving wife & mom, I called it quits with my company and took a leap of faith. I got this inspiration from Rohan Potdar (my Wedding Photographer), as even Rohan had quit his day job to pursue photography. (Check out his work on http://rohanpotdar.com/)
With no family background in photography, I decided to choose this art form purely for the love of capturing & reliving those moments years later. Believe it or not but my first ever photographic experience was with a Nokia 3650 smartphone. My first DSLR was a Canon 600D and just like any other cliche’d photography startups, even I started my Facebook business page (named it ”That Amateur Photographer” ) to display my hobbyist work captured from my travel & family events. I then learnt the basics of photography from Hues Photography Solutions in Andheri West and then assisted Harika Chanana, a very talented owner of Hues Photography Solutions. (Check out her work on http://huesps.com/).

With more than two year of experience, I have gained considerable amount of clients who have utmost confidence in me & are happy with my work. My style of photography has often been considered by my clients as quite emotional. Although I strongly believe that the Indian Wedding Photography scene needs to be taken to a whole new level and we need to do away with the traditional ‘’in the face candid photography”. Our primary focus should be capturing emotions & stories and creating art for our clients to hang on their walls. When I am not shooting or editing, I am making sure to polish my skills by learning & practicing photography as it requires the same kind of dedication & focus as any other art forms. Worlds top Wedding & Portrait photographer Jerry Ghionis has been my single most source of inspiration to become a better photographer. (Check out his work on https://www.jerryghionis.com/). I have also joined Jerry Ghionis’s Ice Society (http://icesociety.com/) where I improve my skills of understanding light, posing and creating emotions & stories.

Although my inclination is mainly towards Wedding Photography but I am also broadening my horizon in other genres such as product photography, e-commerce photography, newborn photography and family portraits.
