Festivals Of India - The Yellow Holi

The yellow Holi, although locally known as the Vittal Birdev annual yatra, it is a festival celebrated by the shepherd community at the Pattan Kodoli village in the Kolhapur district of Maharashtra, India. It is one of those festivals of India which hasn’t taken the limelight yet on any of the social media platforms or on the news. This festival is among the ver few less commercialised festivals of India which makes it all the more special. Also known as Haldi(turmeric) Festival, it is attended by thousands of devotees who come down from different parts of the country such as Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra and more. Only a handful of photographers – who are fortunate enough to know of it's existence attend the festival. Vittal Birdev Yatra is celebrated in the Vaishakha month of the Hindu calendar to offer prayers to Shri Vitthal Birdev, the principal deity of the shepherd community. It is believed to bring good fortune to the community.

On The Horizon - The Photo Diary

The Photo Diary invented itself from this very humanistic as well as contemporary art of photography and videography. The Photo diary believes in the art of reconnoitering human emotions and in scripting it in the form of colorful and monochrome images which becomes a source of joy in the present and nostalgia in the future. For The Photo Diary, shimmering glory in the eyes of the crowd and rustling of hands in the form of claps when the artists end performing on the stage is an art. The tender look in the eyes of a bride on the wedding day is an art. The allure of people on a fashion event and their endearing attempts to give a perfect smile is an art. It is on look for all those candid expressions and gestures, which goes unnoticed otherwise among people celebrating their lives. The Photo Diary is searching for the laugh, tears of joy, feeling of glory, sense of amazement, the get-up-and-go for it moment, vivacity and dynamism in people and wishes to capture it for them and carve out a photo diary for forever.

How to Pitch for Clients

Wedding photography requires amazing teamwork, perseverance and a lot of homework. The work begins right from pitching your portfolio to the clients and Indian photographers tend to make several mistakes in doing so. Being in the industry for years now and having recently contacted many wedding photographers for my own wedding, I have come to realise that there is a lack of knowledge on how one should approach clients and how one can lock in clients. So, in this article, we will talk about how a photographer should pitch their work and packages to their clients.
