How The Journey Began…
Back in the year 2002, some strangers became friends while studying at an engineering college. Never in our dreams did we imagine of coming up with something that Photographians is today! One of us borrowed an digicam and that’s when all the others had their first exposure to click photographs. After college ended, everyone moved in their own chosen roads, and settled down in different cities.
A few years later, Sagar was in Tornoto, when he had the bug of doing something creative in his mind and wanted to start a photo studio. Same year he came back for his wedding. He was not happy with the photographs from his wedding and that ignites the idea of Photographians. He pitched the idea to Newton, Moloy, Saikat and a few others and finally Photographians started with lot of hope, anxiety and with only one Nikon D90. A website was launched and the first wedding was covered in Bangladesh. It was a wedding of a close relative of Sagar.
The step ahead…
If a dream is easily fulfilled, it’s charm is lost! There has to be some twists and turns before you walk up the ladder of success. Something similar was faced by Team Photographians as well. There weren’t any calls to cover weddings, even though we were ready to do it for free!
Soon, we realized though people liked our images, nobody was actually taking us seriously! When they almost lost the hope, a lady dropped a mail asking Photographians to cover her wedding. Somehow she had seen the limited work of Photographians and liked it so much.
From nothing to something…
From 2010, projects started coming, we have grown word of mouth, it is slow but effective. More and more clients started believing in our work. In 2011, Newton and Sagar made it to the Top 50 of Better Photography: Wedding Photographer Of The Year.

In 2014, Rijuman joined the team. In that very year, Shoubhic completed his MBA and Photographians played a major role in his success.
