Cinematography is writing with light in motion and the cinematographer is the principle author of this literature. When making a film, the cinematographer translates the vision of the director into story telling visuals.


A physics graduate from Pachayappa’s college G.P.Krishna joined the Government institute of film technology, Chennai and learnt cinematography. After completing the course G.P.Krishna started his professional journey with the legendary cinematographer P.C.Sreeram from his first film “Vaa indha pakkam” till the national award winning film "Nayagan" and "Apoorva Sagodharargal".

These years with P.C.Sreeram gave G.P.Krishna the insight to master his work and mature into a real professional artist. As independent cinematographer G.P.Krishna worked with K.Rajeshwar for the first film “Nyaya Tharaasu” from here there was no turning back.. . He has also worked on several documentaries & television commercials.

Notable among them are: Documentary entitled “Anna Vazhugirar” on the late Chief Minister of Tamilnadu C.N.Annadurai, produced by Films Division received the national award. Suhashini Maniratnam’s “Penn” produced by Madras Doordarshan, was well received for its technical and aesthetic content and won the best cinematographer award. A detailed film on the Ajanta and Ellora Caves and the Life of Buddha for Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation is running every day at the new visitors centre to keep visitors learn more about the cave’s history and many more.

G.P.Krishna has not only worked in the film industry but also has spent 32 years of teaching cinematography in the Government Film Institute, Chennai. the institute gave G.P.Krishna, the opportunity to share his creativity and technical knowledge with aspiring cinematographers of the future. Today his students are working in the film industry spanning the entire country. Few of them are eminent cinematographers like R.Rathnavel, R.D.Rajasekhar, Thangar Bachan, S.D.Vijay Milton, Manoj Paramahamsa and Vijay K Chakravarthi.

I can't think how anyone can become a director without learning the craft of cinematography.
