I’m Athul Krishna P.A. And I’ve Graduated in Commerce specializing in Finance. After my Bachelor’s, I choose to continue my career in photography as my true passion lied in taking photos of people, nature, and special events.
My goal is to show the beauty, grace, strength, and enthusiasm of people. I focus on non-models, places, & common people in exaggerated situations that highlight an aspect of who they are. I look for a sense of gratitude in my work.
I believe in myself, my hard work and wish to have perfection in everything. I’m pretty sure that I can achieve the goal of becoming a good photographer. My ethic is “I never neglect an opportunity that may prove to be a step for my improvement”.
