I am Sudhanva R Atri, a Visual Communications Professional with a background in Marketing, Professional Photography and Film making. I shuttle between Bangalore and Ooty and specialise in AV Content Production, Documentary & Promotional Films and Portraiture, Architecture, Travel & Nature Photography.
I am an enthusiastic Indian visual story teller keen on working with Brands and Organisations that intend to bring about Positive change in this World.
Currently, I am heading Marketing and Communication at Light & Life Academy while also working as a Mentor to the students at our premier photography institution. I have had the opportunity to work in a fantastic marketing team at Ather Energy recently and help build the AV communication arm. One can see some of that work here. In the past, I have been part of the team that made documentary film projects that have resulted in screenings at Sundance Film Festival (2015) and Berlin Festival (2013 & 2014).
I have studied media, literature and psychology at Christ University, Bangalore and this was my foundation towards communication in general and visual communication specifically.
A few internships, odd jobs and coaxing the parents helped me acquire an SLR Camera and then Light & Life Academy was the next step where I learnt the art and science of photography among the Nilgiris.
As a boy growing up in Bangalore, I spent weekends on our family farm discovering grasslands, orchards & woods with our dogs & I grew to appreciate the natural world. I love being in the outdoors and am constantly seeking ways and means to help protect and conserve the natural world and this is my main goal in this existence.
