PHOTOGAPHY to us
Photography is our PASSION and every photograph taken by us is an expression of this art in a passionate form. We try our best to capture and freeze the stories of our Clients in their most pristine form which will stay fresh to be cherished by our Clients forever. We encourage and request our Clients to be in their own comfort self during the photoshoot sessions. We believe in capturing that real self which is more valuable to us and our Clients, rather than capturing made up or forced expressions and emotions. This leaves us being labelled as Candid Photographers, but we prefer to be called as Pristinographers (Photographers doing Pristine Photography).
We prefer to work with clients whose expectations we understand and who understand our way of working. For that we constantly interact with our clients from planning to execution, especially we need to know their stories before we get in to a photoshoot. During the photoshoot we prefer not to disturb our Clients. We encourage our Clients to come up with wierd themes, concepts or ideas and even to push us to our limits, after all we are being hired by our Clients and would be glad to do so. (If you are planning to engage us, be prepared to engage yourself and to do a lot of homework and planning with us before getting in to the photoshoot, but be rest assured that you will be happy for the efforts put in when you see the results).
We see and use our photography gear only as tools to meet our Clients expectations and hence we do not believe in holding or renting latest and greatest gear. We own all the photography gear that we use and do not rent them, thus making us masters of our gear and are more familiar and much comfortable with the gear that we use. Our clients are welcome to check with us or learn about our gear anytime during the engagement.

Our Storytill date
Muralidharan KuppuswamyFounder & Photographer
Thanks for stopping by freezetimephoto!
It all started with my addiction for travelling and exploring new places in 2009 during when I bought an entry level basic Point and Shoot camera to take back memories of my travel. Taking photographs during travel sooner transformed in to travelling for taking photographs within a short span of time subconsciously. For almost 2 years I have been using this basic point and shoot camera(which I still hold and use) exploring all its capabilities which took some amazing pictures which I cherish even today and never had I felt the need of upgrading to a DSLR, in fact I used to criticize those carrying bulky DSLRs when I was able to take same kind of pictures with my small camera which I carried with ease. The ease did not last long as I started realizing its limitations when my photography experimentations changed genre from places/landscapes to people/portrait, which is when I had to force myself to buy a DSLR as I had outgrown the capabilities and limitations of my Point and Shoot Camera. Once I got hands on my new DSLR, I became literally unstoppable with my crazy experimentations trying out every other photography tricks I come across online and exploring all setting in my camera. Since then I have slowly learnt the art of using my camera to convert good photographs to better ones and if possible to best ones. The learning and experimentation still continues to this date.On consistent push and encouragement from my friends and family to take up professional photography, I decided to give it a try and needed a platform to launch my professional photography career and that is how freezetimephoto came in to existence in 2012. After having tried various genres of photography, Weddings and Wildlife were the ones which always kept me haunting as I was not able to experiment much on these; Weddings due to fear of failure and Wildlife for its high investment costs. While the wildlife still keeps haunting me, Weddings have started to feed my passion from 2012 and kept me engaged and interested with their challenges and opportunities all the time, every time. To get over my fear of shooting Weddings, I used to shoot Weddings of my friends and family before taking them up professionally. Weddings are where I get to use all learnings from all other genres of photography which I had played with earlier, all in one place, opening up a wide range of challenging opportunities. Candid Wedding photography still give me pleasant surprises every time and maybe that’s why they hold such high regards and respect which they truly deserve. Weddings also give me a sense of satisfaction in what I am doing of being able to freeze my Clients' most worthy memories for them to cherish forever.
A hobby which started as a passion turned out in to a profession which eventually started destroying the passion I had for the hobby and almost had me loose it until I found a balance between profession and passion by carefully choosing the projects I involve myself in and by not taking up everything that comes by my way.
While I shoot all assignments myself, I do partner with other likeminded photographers, Wedding organizers, studios etc on a case to case and need basis.
You now know my story as a photographer and what I offer better. If you feel I am the kind of photographer you are looking for, do get in touch with me and I am waiting to hear your story and freeze your pristine memories forever!
