Ahobila Academy is a non- profit education trust started by Narendra Kumar Ahobila, to encourage the students in the field of Photography .This is a full facility institute exclusively for photography and cinematography in India. It started with the objective of providing affordable professional photography education of a high standard from basic levels to specialization.
The institute is located in Bangalore, Silicon Valley, one of the fastest growing cities of India filled with extremely friendly and supportive people. This city is culturally and naturally rich which encourages budding photographers and students to stay focused in their passion in photography.
At Ahobila Academy, we believe that images are created by what and how you see from your inner eye. Our motive is to go beyond the art & science of photography, towards awakening and nurturing each individual's unique vision and inner vision. We strongly believe in the methods of modern technologies in addition to one's perspective. In order to fully understand photography, one should understand the Light and Situation under which one has to work. We believe that the two are strongly intertwined and have a lasting effect on each other. Thus, we encourage the students to grow and develop in all aspects of their life. There is no right or wrong at Ahobila Academy, it is the process of learning and taking fruitful steps towards reaching the desired goal.
