Iqbal Mohamed is the fulcrum of all things academic at LLA. He crafts every detail of the curriculum while mentoring the faculty and inspiring all who study at LLA.
The core faculty members at LLA are aligned with the philosophy of Iqbal and the academy: share knowledge and the willingness to work with students who have varying learning curves. Being practicing photographers and alumni of LLA, they are all equipped to teach in a structured fashion. They help reinvent the syllabus and be relevant in terms of trends, techniques and aesthetics. Since they’re practicing photographers, the faculty may change from month to month and year to year.
Well explained classes and demo, proper presentation, clarity 100%. Shantonobho is patient, soft spoken, ready to teach us and explain everything as many times as we want whatever he teaches is well planned and from the very scratch. Perfection is what he aims at. Lighting techniques are something I learnt through his class.– Tarasha, Batch 18
It was a really beautiful experience and probably the most memorable one, the way Aneev sir went on with the whole session. Aneev Sir not only taught us about technicalities in the fashion world but gave us insight into the mood and aesthetics in the field of fashion photography. He has helped me widen my perspectives and possibilities when it comes to creative freedom.– Nandagopal Nair, Batch 18
We enjoyed the session quite a lot. Garima was very friendly and approachable. She encouraged two-way communication & answered a lot of questions. We also actively participated during the demo session. Overall it was a good class.– Sadik Alam, Batch 16
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. He also tells us the reason behind the improvements and I can really see the change that his inputs bring to my images. Overall, it was a great learning experience and I managed to learn how small tips really made big improvements!– Rishitha Devi, Batch 18
The first few minutes of interacting with Punya ma’am felt like being hit with a tsunami of enthusiasm. The energy is infectious and inspiring. Punya has this very direct approach that I personally liked. She made everything very clear right at the start. I usually think twice before asking questions in class, but I think right from the first day I felt extremely comfortable conversing in class whenever I needed to.– Vivek Mohan, Batch 17
Brilliant teaching. Loved how Sudhanva Sir understood everyone’s perspective and taught according to it.– Chandrasekar, Batch 17
We have heard a lot about Sathish Sir’s way of teaching and style of making complicated topics easy to understand. It was important to pay attention throughout the session. We loved the way that he not only taught us the techniques, but also shared his experiences and learning as a professional photographer. We enjoyed his sessions a lot!– Rejoy Krishnan, Batch 15
Ankit was very appreciative in the critique and was also very much on point with the rectification we could have done with those photographs. He didn’t just want us to work on our photography for the sake of completion of our course in Light & Life Academy but he also wanted us to be prepared for the outside world as a professional photographer. He suggested ideas and showed us opportunities and paths we could take to work and excel in the field of photography.– Kathak Mithra, Batch 20
Ajit’s teaching patterns are Unique. He used to give us an idea about how to achieve the right image in terms of lighting & detailing, but never told us what to do on sets. He is allowed each one of us to experiment with different techniques we learnt. But before finding the right one, we explored many other ways which failed, but those failed methods would succeed on different products.– Jagadish Rana, Batch 13
The session was very well planned and organized. Mihir and Swati discussed each and every aspect of food photography. We also understood the importance of food styling. All the demos were executed brilliantly. He also shared his own experience in the industry, which was very insightful. The Food stylist was also a great help and she discussed food styling in detail! – Varun Saraswat, Batch 15
