The Light & Life Story


Iqbal Mohamed and Anuradha, founded Light and Life Academy on the day of the equinox. Naturally, it is equal measure teaching and learning. It is the exact balance of a school and a home. It is a synergy of well-structured curriculum and free-willed study. It encourages classroom and corridor learning; theory and practical, just the same.

At Light & Life Academy, the belief is that images are created by what you observe and by what you intuit. The Academy's every endeavour, therefore, is to go beyond a thorough understanding of the art & science of photography, towards awakening and nurturing each individual's unique vision and inner vision as is symbolised in the logo.

Light & Life Academy is a not-for-profit education trust, set up in Ooty, India, with the initial support of Kodak India & Eastman Kodak, USA in the year 2001.

Ultra Violet Photography gives a very unique dimension to any frame. The U.V Light makes the image look surreal!

The one thing that stood out to me about Sukil sir is that while critiquing an image, he only adds improvements and does not change the concept as a whole.
