Powerful, emotive imagery is the key to getting the message across yet most see the image for a fleeting moment. Multi award winning photographer and artist Gandee Vasan and his team understand this and strive to create images that first appear simple and striking to draw in the viewer but grow more intriguing and complex the longer the eye lingers. He is always conscious of delivering the best rendition of a concept and looks for the most powerful dynamic in an idea. Seeking to capture the essence by observing the unique qualities whether it’s a four legged creature or a human being, using the most interesting metaphors to communicate the concept.
He draws from his Fine art experience where he started in childhood, later doing a degree in Fine Art and then doing post graduate studies in Computer Graphics and illustration. He spent ten years creating conceptual images for advertising in London and Amsterdam and worked at Getty Images creating some of their most evocative images. Prior to that, he was an award winning portrait painter. He was also responsible for some of the most cutting edge work in the early days of digital image manipulation, restoring the ceiling of the Queens House in Greenwich entirely by digital means.
Gandee has recently done books of expressive portraits of Dogs and Cats. His work has also been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Association of photographers gallery and his limited edition prints are in private collections and galleries.
Advertising agencies and publishers seek out Gandee for his striking photography which conveys a sense of awe and wonder. They seek him for his ability to tailor the image to communicate exactly what they want to say through his creative image manipulation and artistic skills as much as for the photography.
