Interview: Photographer Kaushik Brahma (India)

Can you tell us a little about you?

Ans: my name is Kaushik Brahma. I am a teacher teaching computer science at senior secondary level. I am a professional photographer too. For me photography is my life. I am a creative concept based photographer. I love building concepts. I feel composition and use of light is most important factors in photography. I feel that every photographs should have a story to tell. Its important for a photographer to do the best use of gears and environment present at that particular time. We should never complain or excuse about the non availability of gears or unsuitable environment. One more thing a photographer makes a photograph a camera dont. One should not have the wrong notion that buying of expensive gears will make u a great photographer rather finding good concept following rules of composition and using light at its best with whatever gears available will make a great photographer.

How and when did you get into photography?

I was an artist since my childhood. Later when I got a camera in my hand I started converting the ideas of fine arts into photography. Thats how I started my journey in the beautiful world of photography.

What does photography mean to you?

Photography is the love of my life. I feel myself complete with the camera in my hand.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I am concept based photographer. I think of a concept first and then at I do the home work and collect or make the props needed. Second thing is finding appropriate face for the concept. When these are done I do meeting with my designer and makeup artist and organise the photoshoot. For outdoor shoot finding proper background is also a challenge.

Where do you get inspiration from?

I get Inspiration from the artists and the old flim photographers whose work was much more challenging.

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?

Of course. I visualise my concepts and the make it happen.If you cant visualise in mind what u want to achieve, then you will end up creating something which may not be satisfactory.

Studio, on location or both?


Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Being a professional photographer obviously I get paid for my work. But the shoots which I do for my creativity is funded entirely by me.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

Most memorable session is obviously the photoshoot of a Hindu mythological charecter “Sakuntala". I was suffering from high fever that time but inspite of that, I stood in the middle of chilled water of a stream to take the photographs. It was in the start of my career and I had a very little knowledge that time. But I was able to improvise the hard light from bright sun with the white cloth of the middle of a reflector to capture some beautiful portraits. Some photos are attached.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

I am a Nikon Influencer and use nikon myself. There is no favourite lense, Use of lense depends on the concept what I want to achieve, but Nikon 70-200 f2.8 , Nikon 50mm F 1.4, are the two lense I use it for my photographs the most.

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

Keep your profile....u will get good business at the end. Its important to keep the motivation going.

What do you think of our new magazine?

Its a great initiative. Good platform for photographers....I wish a very best of luck for the future. Hope it will achieve the peak some day.
