Imagine the outcome of finance ideas when an animator, management professional, finance graduate and an artist come together! Rajeesh Champungal, a postgraduate diploma student of photography at National Institute of Creative Communication (NICC) brainstormed with his fellow students, Sharath Krishnan, Rahul Accot and Shebin Jacob to start Beyond Frames, a photography firm that is just five months old.

“Initially, we thought we’d do shoots, portfolios and so on. But then, given our diverse backgrounds, we wanted to take it further,” says Rajeesh. Though a newbie, the startup already has a list of project ideas up its sleeve. “We are presently working on a television commercial for a Kerala-based spa. Next week, we are putting up a photography exhibition and a workshop. We have linked up with a prominent gallery in the city for this workshop, which is open to anyone who wants to learn about photography,” he adds.

While Rajeesh, Rahul and Sharath are photography students, Shebin is studying visual communication. Rajesh holds an MBA. “Our photography projects do not clash with work, as we do not have classes per se. Every quarter, we have to work on a project,” he says. For now, the startup has a page on Facebook, and Rajeesh and his friends want to keep it humble. “The current plan is to have our own production house.”
