Enthusiast for Pictorial Photography
Mr. Venkateswarlu Kola (Kodad, Andhra Pradesh-India) was born on 7th march, 1965. While he was studying, he started photography as a profession. He was lucky enough as he got the valuable guidance of famous photo artist, Mr. Achari at the early stage of his career (1982). Under his able guidance he started with black and white medium. He used to handle the whole process of this form of art himself. Within a short phase of time he got mastery over the basics of photography art, and now his friends started calling him 'Bommala Venkanna'. In fact this name was given to him as a token of love and regard. This honour means a lot to Mr. Venkateswarlu because this comprises precious love and regard of his well wishers. Afterward he developed his interest into 'pictorial photography'. This inclination was the result of several photography workshops at different places of India that he had attended. Soon he started submitting his art works in reputed photography contests. The results were quite positive. He got several awards and laurels. He is among a few of India who have got the Associateship of India International Photography Council (AIIPC) and the Associateship of Federation of Indian Photography (AFIP). The key part of his creative works is his command over light and composition. The magical use of light in combination with perfect composition in his images attracts the art lovers at first sight and that too very deeply. This quality makes him different from others.
