My journey from an artist to a photographer and then to a Cinematographer happened as it is meant to be. And Nothing around amazes me as the Visual Art does. Everything around us is beautiful, even the imperfections. And to capture it lively is my Idea of Cinematography.
Until graduation, The only skill I know I had was to paint and draw. But to establish it as a career option was never in mind. I never imagined of aspiring or achieving anything in particular. It was during those times my Uncle gifted me a Mobile Phone with Camera, A revolutionary Mobile Camera Technology it was. Through the medium of Photography, I developed and enhanced colour skills and was able to connect my painting interest with photography.
Though my Graduation main was Mathematics, I chose to Master in Applied Arts due to my newly developed passion for photography and creative arts. The Idea of Film making and the process behind it was something daily discussed and learnt, thus Cinema and Cinematography came into the picture. My Intrest towards Maths, Physics, Photography and Art perfectly aligned there. And I discovered, This is what I wanted to achieve.
I am Bineesh Viswam, and this is my story. I am a Cinematographer. I started my career in the year 2012 as an Assistant Cinematographer in the Film Industry. From there till now I have been associated with several brands across India and GCC for their commercial and corporate advertising needs.
