About Mr. Rakesh VC
Mr. Rakesh grew up on a diet of Wild life films on the National Geographic Channel! Right from a very young age he loved Wild life and Nature. It was only natural for him wanting to capture every aspect of these with his camera!
His love for Nature and Wild Life turned to passion when he met Dr. Manoj C Sindagi who became his first mentor. Dr Manoj not only taught him the fine art of photography but also processing the images. He also introduced him to Youth Photographic Society where he met another mentor H Satish. It was here that at a tender age of 16, his passion for photography turned into profession.
Today, he pursues Cinematography and Photography as his profession. He has worked as a cinematographer for more than a 100 short films in a short period of time.
In addition to winning many acceptances and awards in salon he won the Askary Award in 2017 and the 1st Award at FIP Youth Photographer of the Year contests-1 in 2018.
He was also the Best YPS entrant at the YPS 36th All India Salon 2018.
At present, in addition to wild life and nature, he dabbles in all genres of photography like macro, portraits, still life, table top and astro.
