About

International Award Winning Photographer**

Light comes and goes, a magic happens, a moment in time is captured. The drama of light and shade, the kaleidoscope of color, textures, hues and expressions captured by the camera, leaves behind a moment etched on a piece of paper for us to cherish forever!

I am  not just a photographer by profession but more so by passion. For me photography has been a constant companion since 1978, an eternal love affair! It has nourished me, taught me, empowered me and has made me feel special. photography is my heart and soul, photography is my friend and guide, photography is my bread and butter.

As a wedding and life style photographer I truly believe that wedding is the most important event of one’s life and the whole purpose of the wedding photography is to bring those moments to life, every time a person scrolls through the pictures captured by the photographer.

I create images that are vibrant, technically brilliant, full of emotions / expressions and composed to perfection. My approach to wedding photography is to go with the flow and be non intrusive and non interfering. I enjoy my work and I let the couple, the family and guests enjoy the wedding rather than hijack the proceedings. I weave beautiful wedding stories with pictures which may be cherished for all times to come. I take very few weddings a year and believe in providing my client the best of user experience and deliver high quality artwork.

I employ the same professional ethics and practices for wedding photography as I do for my other commercial work. You can check out www.pradeepmahajan.com
I work for advertising, corporate, and editorial clients. I take pride in the diversity of my projects with subjects ranging from people and products to architecture and industry besides wedding and lifestyle photography.
I am a consummate professional photographer. My attention to detail and the technical aspects of photography are always present in my work, but never prevent me from getting the shot in a timely manner… a must for a commercial photographer.
I take pride in myself on my extensive range of photographic capabilities. My talent encompass interior residential and commercial photography, large  and small products, jewelery  photography, product shots for catalog, advertising and web use, annual reports, professional portfolios, industrial, instutional and outdoor location photography. I specialize in image manipulation, photo retouching and enhancement. I  have the capabilities to handle shoots on location as well as in my own studio. I work with top of the line professional equipment.
My photographic goal is to work within the digital mediums to achieve for my clients the highest quality images possible. I pledge to use all necessary resources to meet my customer’s practical and creative needs by exceeding their expectations. I will always maintain a professional atmosphere, a serious work ethic and a healthy concern to achieve these goals at a fair price.
My clients are sending me work from all over the country. Some send products to be shot, others send layouts or concepts to be created in my studio, others send assignments to shoot people or places.
I focus on creating beautiful photographs that capture my client’s vision. My eye for composition and detail, and my ability to work with my clients as a team help me to create images that speak for them selves.
My goal is always to provide images that will be a valuable assets to my clients.
Interests & hobbies:
Astronomy: exploring, understanding and photographing the wonders of the cosmos from my personal observatory.
Music: a notch above the bathroom singer and occasionally play tabla.
Travelling: love to drive my Bolero SLX, on mountains. I live in it literally when I go shooting landscapes.
Cooking: my family loves it when I cook.
