Photography is an instinct. It is the translation of the excitement you feel when you see something from a unique point of view.
Bhagatkumar discovered that instinct when he was all of ten years. His child-like curiosity inspired him to frame nature’s beauty with his camera. Though he went on to study engineering, he was to soon reestablish his bond with photography.
Bhagatkumar began capturing nature and wildlife with his lens. He was part of a wildlife photography tour headed by the renowned photographer, Kalyan Verma. Kalyan observed that Bhagatkumar had a flair for capturing the emotions of people. He directed him towards his destiny.
Bhagatkumar travelled to USA for work, but he didn’t know that the visit would transform his life.
He received the opportunity to meet the world-famous fashion photographer, Alex Lim and worked under his mentorship for 8 months across Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Bhagatkumar was part of several prestigious photography projects in the fashion capitals of the world.
When he returned to Chennai, his only focus was fashion photography. He realized that the city’s fashion scene was quite different from the rest of the world, but he identified the originality that bubbled beneath the surface. He launched Makka Studios in 2008, with the aim of bringing a unique perspective to fashion photography.
