Madras Photo Bloggers:
We, Madras Photo Bloggers, are a growing community of multi-talented like-minded people who aim at promoting the culture of Chennai. We believe that photo-blogging can bring in immense attention to the unique blend of cultures that are native to Chennai, and on equal footing emphasize the attention and bring about recognition to the artists who have a connection with the city.
Any community thrives with sharing, inspiring, interacting and networking. We seek to make this easier by creating opportunities for open interactions, mentorship, and mutual learning. Up until now, we have seen a roaring response while promoting photography in this beautiful city.
We had hosted a slew of events for Madras Day celebrations, pan-Chennai. We hosted a photo exhibition which was initially planned for two days got extended to over 4 days owing to popular demand. The finale of Madras Day celebrations hosted a ramp for the Chennaiites who have been changing the mindscape of this city. We had hosted a photo-walk in collaboration with Carl Zeiss, for a photo-walk in the Potters Town of Chennai – Kosapet
