Hello, Welcome to my Blog!
My name is Deepak Vedarthan and I am a Management Consultant living in the Bay Area. As a Consultant, I travel quite a bit throughout the US and Canada. Work keeps me quite busy, but I try to find time for my passions/hobbies.

If you like my work, I’d love to hear from you, but more importantly, if you can critique my work, that will help me grow.
As Winston Churchill said, “Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfills the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.” So, please feel free to critique my work and help me learn, grow, and get better.
Photography has been my passion for a very long time. I have been Photographing different subjects over the course of last 8 years. I used to do a lot of Portrait Photography – Fashion/Glamor. Over the last 2 years, I have shifted my focus primarily to Landscape Photography. I also enjoy Wildlife Photography quite a bit. I am actively involved in Photography events to network with other professional in the industry and learn the ropes from experts. Through meetups and other events, I have met several Photographers in the Bay Area and have learned from them.
I strongly believe that as important as it is to have the ‘best’ equipment, it still lies in the hands of the Photographer to make the subject stand-out. For this reason, I believe that a Photographer should be artistic, experimental, and break the ‘rules’ where necessary, for stunning results.
As Aristotle once said, “What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing.” I learn by doing! I go out and shoot as much as possible; I network with the ‘best-of-the-best’ and learn constantly.
