Anil Ramchandani, founder Linaarp’s Photography 

How did you get into this field?
I come from a family of photographers, my father and all my uncles are photographers, I tried my hand at various fields like Gemology and Flying but the photography bug bit me hard and I got passionate about it. I am glad I landed up here because I enjoy every bit of it. 

Tell us about your primary style?

I like to tell stories with my images. My passion lies with portraits, be it individual or families or couples, I just love taking pictures of kids, also in my portraits I like to show a lot of emotions and action.

What is that one thing you are tired of hearing?

“What equipment do you use”, “can I know how many pixels is your camera” etc, to which I always tell them that my eyes are my equipment.

What do you particularly like about photographing weddings?

The emotions that are displayed and the love that families and friends show during weddings. People become whacky as the comfort level amongst themselves is high. Also, that is the one time where the people listen to me for the abstract poses that I require to show my creativity.

What is your favourite part of the wedding?

Surprisingly it is the bidai, I just love the mixed emotions people go thru at this point of time, someone is happy someone is sad. 

Your favourite equipment

My trustworthy Canon 1DX Mark 2, my 50mm and 85mm 1.2 lenses, my Imac and not to forget my super wide angle lens.

What advice would you give to couples looking for a wedding photographer?

See their work and not their equipment! A good photographer can give you fabulous pictures even with a mobile phone and quite a few times expensive does not mean good, some of the newcomers are doing fantastic images with the most basic equipment.

If there was one place in the world you would love to capture a wedding where would it be and why?

Macau, primarily for its proximity to India and it has everything – beaches, old forts, psychedelic lights and at the same time I can go and play some Poker.

What is the best and worst moment you have had as a wedding photographer?

One of my most cherishable moment was when I was called to the bride’s house much after I had delivered the albums and the bride’s grandmother came and told me how much she enjoyed the pictures. That was not it, she even fed me my favorite puranpoll and blessed me. Thankfully I have not had too many worst moments!
