About Me

“Happy Go Blessed Me”

Hey there, I am Elina!

Want to make use of this space to scribble a little about me!

First things first – I’m a firm believer and a follower of Jesus Christ. After all, no one in this world can die for you in spite of knowing and loving you, but Jesus loved and died for me even before I knew Him! Now that’s what agape love is all about, which only God can give. So I live for Him and His glory alone.

And all the work that you see on these web pages has been possible only and only because of His grace!

Talking about my photography – well it began with a simple admiration for God’s creation and it has eventually led me to capture it at a professional level.

One thing I always enjoyed looking at was the sunset. But it never dawned upon me that it would be a nice idea to capture it on a camera. I didn’t know the ABCs of photography, and neither had someone to guide me. No friends – No Direction – No encouragement. Then when I started working, I saved enough money to buy a good digital camera. I bought Sony Cybershot HSD10 which was a high-end point and shoot camera available at that time (I am talking about 2009!). The pic you see is my camera!

And thus began my ‘click-o-mania’ …

I began clicking sunsets from my home terrace and have a look at some of the shots I managed. . (Don’t forget to read the miraculous story behind my moon shot with this camera! Click below. 🙂 )

But then as I got busy with my work and life, I couldn’t devote much time towards photography. But God had different plans! He gifted me with an iPhone through Papa Shyju Mathew (Founder of Revive Nations ministry) and thus began my passion for photography! Slowly I started learning and improving my photography and editing skills which he taught me. (By the way in case you don’t know Papa is truly a gifted photographer. Click below to see his Instagram feed).

Papa Shyju has been a big blessing to me in my journey as a photographer & designer, not only in through gifting me an iPhone (and a DSLR camera later), but also through his encouragement and guidance.

Soon many of my pictures started getting featured in some of the prominent photography accounts on Instagram.

And it was during this phase that my lil sweetheart Nathan (who is one gem-of-a-person), was kind and sweet enough to take time to teach me the technicalities and functions of a DSLR camera. He ws the one who kept pushing me to take a step of faith and get into this profession.

And that’s how my hobby turned into a profession!

Having said that learning never ends and I believe I need to grow even more!

“The beauty of a photographer is in clicking a subject in weirdest place you get and yet make it look beautiful.”
