Kochi-based photographer Anson Antony’s classy bikini calendar that is all set to become the talk of the town
It’s overnight fame for photographer Anson Antony, whose work has already grabbed many an eyeball. The 27-year-old, originally from Paravoor in Kochi, says his brush with photography began while he was still in college here.
“The biggest challenge of working on this collection was to ensure each picture was artistic and not let even a bit of vulgarity creep in,” says Anson. Obviously a result of many months of planning, Anson’s only regret is that he did not shoot any of these pictures in Kerala. Instead, it has been shot in places like Coorg and in some villages near Goa. “It was a dream to shoot in Kerala, but it was not practical. Unfortunately, there is no location here which offers the privacy that is required for such a shoot,” he says.
A fashion photographer by profession, it was a stint with the Karnataka tourism that fuelled his passion for the art. “Initially, I wanted to work on a season calendar, but that got shelved after one of the models suffered an injury on shoot. I tied up with a Bangalore-based modelling agency to work on a new theme. A fashion shoot is rather challenging as it requires a good team of designers, stylists and of course the models,” says the youngster. Next on the cards is nature and macrophotography, and Anson says, “I hope to put aside some time just for this.”
