About Vijayaraj PS
I am Vijayaraj PS from Chidambaram,a south Indian town in Tamilnadu.Now currently settled down in chennai.It was in Mumbai when i was in deputation for my IT job got my first camera.Those days,it accompanied me in my travelling.I returned back to chennai and came to know about CWC ( Chennai Weekend Clickers) group and started going travel walks with them.What started as a hobby,slowly became passion.
Initially starting with Travel photography genre,in the journey of learning got to know about street photography genre.Fascinated by the works of legendary photographers like Henri cartier-bresson,Alex webb and many others I started exploring more.I feel like I am more of a photographer who works on my own instincts which suited this genre.
Flickr has been one constant medium where i can see and appreciate works of top photographers all around the world.Watching quality movies and travelling keeps me inspired.Currently, I am doing photo stories and few on going projects.One thing I would like to maintain is to enjoy this photography journey through out my life maintaining the same enthusiasm when it all started.
