Hello, I am Venkat Balaji (a.k.a VB),  a professional self-taught photographer from Chennai, India. I specialise in contemporary event photography. 

I grew up in Chennai and graduated from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, where I studied Electrical Engineering. My love for digital photography began when I was a student and it grew to the point where I knew it had to be my way of life. While teaching myself photography, I worked as a chip-design engineer in Bangalore, India and at the same time I took up photography assignments for The Score Magazine. One thing led to an other and very soon I started taking up wedding photography assignments all over India. 

My goal is to create lively, spirited, natural images that are as unique as the people in them. I am available for assignments all over India and abroad. Feel free to get in touch with me here
