Venu Challa fell in love with photography when his wife, Nagee, gave him a Digital Single-Lens Reflex camera, commonly known as DSLR, as a gift four years ago. Challa had always thought about dabbling in photography, but could never bring himself to learn it. He started photographing landscapes, sunrises and sunsets, and then moved on to taking pictures of various breeds of birds. He learned his trade on his own and with the help of a few of his fellow amateur photographers. His passion for photography has led him to produce some startling photos that beat many professional shots.
A Vice President of Professional Services at Dedham, MA-based Reflexis Systems Inc., Challa says that his favorite snapper has been American photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams (1902 —1984) and his own fellow amateurs who have shown him the ropes. His dream is to photograph every church in New England in the Fall season with kaleidoscope natural colors as the background.
