I chanced upon a site called Momentzia, which a very interesting discovery indeed. Momentzia – The Photographers’ Hub, is an online photographers’ collaborative. It is a platform that makes available the work and profiles of shutterbugs across the board.
If you’re looking for someone to shoot your wedding, a fashion portfolio, or your newly constructed home, you will find here a list of professionals pertinent to your requirement. ‘One of the major hurdles in enlisting the services of a lensman is the hefty charge,’ relates Nishant Agarwal, who has co-founded Momentzia with his wife, Anuja Agarwal. ‘With Momentizia, you can select as per your budget’, he says. The site features photographers of varied experience levels, whose work posted online is proof of the photography pudding.
Momentzia also regularly organises photography workshops for amateurs and professionals who are on the lookout for newer learnings or want to sharpen their skills.
Coming up is the Product Photography Workshop, a two-day program being conducted by Tarun Vachhar. A Mumbai-based photographer, primarily covering fashion and advertising shoots, he has vast experience in the industry and has carried out multiple projects in India and abroad. Vachhar also serves as faculty member in Udaan School of Photography. The workshop will be at Studio 211 in Virwani Industrial Estate.
With online shopping giving retail stores a great run for customers, it’s the visual appeal of products that make all the difference. Manufacturers and retailers are turning to professional photographers to get high-quality shots of their products. Product photography is therefore a major genre in commercial photography.
Should learning more about this field interest you, go ahead and check the event details out and sign up. It’s intensive and inclusive, providing a lot of real and practical training, in a professional studio. Going by some of the testimonials of previous participants, it sure seems to be worthwhile. Especially since it’s right in our neighbourhood!
