About The Blog

Manipal Photo Blog was founded by “Preetam Nath to showcase the talent of photographers of Manipal University. The main motive was to create a platform for this immense pool of young, budding, aspiring and talented photographers to show their skills to the world, and this BLOG is exactly that place. This is THE PORTAL where the best photos are selected and showcased regularly.

The Blog became immensely popular within months of inception, and now boasts of a healthy family of regular visitors, as well as new visitors coming and appreciating all the photos everyday. Due to this popularity, the initiative of expanding to other colleges, universities in India, is being considered. Manipal University students get this kind of exposure of their works, why not others too? With this, we begin on a new direction, on a long and probably hectic, but gonna-be-fun journey ahead.

We are also in the works of creating an e-magazine. The sole aim of the e-magazine is to CREATE a QUALITY magazine on photography, more so, the work of photographers, their profiles, articles associated to pictures, photography tips, software and hardware reviews, poetry, etc. by a pool of 18-20 year olds. We aim for professional quality, and we shall deliver.

Hope you enjoy your time spent here.

  1. thanks for stopping by, glad you liked my last post:). If you ever get the chance, let me know what you think of my music. Keep on keeping on:)

  2. 7th Heaven, thank you for subscribing to my GetzSolutions.com blog! I really like yours and shared it with my wife who does photography. Hello from the US!

  3. Thanks for the follow over on my blog. It is so nice to get to know others with this passion for photography. You have wonderful photos here. I, of course, immediately fell in love with “Pure Eyes”.

  4. Thanks for popping over and ‘following’ my blog, I’m loving the photography side of it and am now getting into the writing too!!! I really like your photos and shall follow with interest.

  5. Hi,
    Tried to send an email yesterday didn’t seem to get through. I’m not real keen, er up to date on this whole facebook thing. However, I really am flattered by your faithful following of my images lately. Really love your concern for our canine friends. It’s a shame how some people treat animals especially dogs. Abuse is horrid. Thank you so much for your time and following. I truly appreciate your kind heart. Afterall, Must Love Dogs. Take care, love the pix of the puppies, regards, rek.

  6. Thanks for liking my post! This is my first visit to your blog and I’ve never seen another like it! Most people only share their own photography. Sharing others work is a great way to showcase a variety of passions, emotions and viewpoints. Are you also a photographer? Or just a fan?

    • I was into photography. But I don’t have a camera with me now. Will get one soon. I’m into photography yes, but what I love more is to see something with my eyes, capturing it in digital or reel is secondary priority, honestly speaking.

  7. Hay Man your site is very interesting. Those 2 dogs are very cute. I almost forgot thanks for liking my post . More power to you. Best Regards Nonoy Manga

  8. The pictures are amazing! I’m jealous of their skills. hehe makes me want to do more photography project! 🙂
