About the Speaker
Sri. M N Murthy belongs to Bengaluru and started doing graphic designing for advertising purposes and was identified for his good visuals, which made him try his hand at photography. He started doing portraiture in 1997 and concentrated on child portraiture, fashion and dancers from 2004. He got identified with his studio ‘Fotogenic’ and came to be fondly known as ‘FotoMurthy’.
He was chosen to be ‘The official baby photographer of The Cradle hospital’ in Bangalore and was pioneer of professional ‘infant photography’ in hospitals. He has captured lovely images of newborn babies for over 6000 parents in the said hospital alone. However, owing to his commitments to dance photography and travel for weddings/fine art photography, he discontinued doing infant photography.
Apart from being the official portrait photographer for Natyanjali School of Dance, Drishti School of Dance, Kanagal School of Dance, NatyaSampada; he collaborates with 12-15 major dance schools in Bangalore, for their portrait and portfolio requirements.
He frequently collaborates with legendary dance make-up artistes like Kanakaraj and Vijayakumar who do 75% of the Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi and Kathak makeups in Bangalore.
He proudly admits that he is a die-heard black and white aficionado, and that about 20-30% of images in every portfolio that he creates, will contain black and white pictures. He believes that there is something classical and artistic for a photographer to create images in monotones.
Apart from creating artistic portraiture, his interests are Graphic Design, Photo-Book Designing and Motion Graphics and also scribbles tiny poems in Kannada, Tamil and English.
