I have used twice the services of Capture 'O' Graphy and was really impressed with 1- the professional approach; 2- the quality of the pictures. Kiran spent very valuable time with me to understand exactly what I needed; I didn't have to correct anything as the results were better than what I expected. We had to do lots of external pictures on top of the internal ones. Kiran is not just any photographer; he is someone who is passionate about life and how to capture the essence of it.

I liked the way Kiran transferred his knowledge about photography to the people around him. I can now very confidently tell that I have a decent knowledge on camera parts and how to use it and about the technicalities. I recommend this workshop to guys who want to get good hold on photography. Looking forward for your next workshop...Kudos to C'O'G...Cheers!!
