Girish Menon's photography journey


Uncle Philip gifted me a Canon AE-1P camera on my seventeenth birthday.


I immediately loaded the camera and started clicking anything and everything in sight. But when the photos were developed they were either too bright or too dark or out of focus.


That’s when I realised I needed to take a course in photography to learn the basic skills of taking good pictures.


I turned to a renowned photographer and signed on for a one year private class and it was a game changer.


During this course, I started shooting amazing professional pictures, getting them published in various magazines... and getting paid for it!


I then decided to share my new knowledge with budding photo enthusiasts so they too could experience what I was taught.


So in 2007, I started teaching photography workshops at various venues in Mumbai. Since then I have had the opportunity to teach photography to over 6,000 individuals between the ages of 8 and 85.


I was the visiting faculty for photography at SNDT Women’s University in Mumbai, where I taught “Lighting and digital photography” to first and second year BSc. Home Science students for three years.


I have facilitated photography workshops and seminars at schools and colleges such as American School of Bombay, VIBGYOR (Mumbai and Pune), Witty International School, Bishop's School Pune, IIT of Bombay and Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, S.M. Shetty College and Anna Leela College in Mumbai, and for organisations such as ICICI Foundation for Inclusive Growth, Kotak Mahindra Bank, NABARD etc.
