I am srinavin kumar , have my under graduation in mechanical engineering from Tamil nadu, southern part of India, 2011 pass out . I completely left it and switched to photography , I am self learned photographer trying to create wonderful Image manipulations like never before, I also shoot street, travel , Landscapes which I love, But I want to expertise myself in conceptual/creative works. I have won a honorary mention in last year scott kelby photo walk(that's the only recognition). The sad part is I don't have any opportunities here in my place, People around me don't respect my work, I don't want to live in this place for sometime. Its been a while I got paid for a work. My parents are giving a little support so I am managing but I know its soon gonna stop. Whenever I tell people of what I am doing they are being sarcastic , they reply like " How can you make a living with what you do ? ", It hurts every time . All my friends just exploit my talent and use me for free to take their special occasion, events, facebook profile pictures :/.Even though I am almost burned out, I just couldn't give up ,I am just completely lost, I am bad at PR. I don't where to go , but I still carry my camera and keep shooting that's the only thing makes me happy. I am thinking about higher education not in some traditional photography courses, a mix of 3D modelling (I already know solidworks), Lighting (which I don't have the cash to experiment till now ). Apart from it, the reason why i seek a college is ,for a change of my lifestyle, a new positive place ,getting along and surrounded with wonderful Inspiring people who are in the same boat. All I need is a little push and support, then there's no stopping. My website is http://srinkphotography.in , 500px : http://500px.com/srinavinkumar Please have a look at my work and give some valuable advice ,suggestions people , Please help . I am tired of self evaluation.
