Guruprasad (Guru) Hegde is a self taught avid Indian Professional Photographer born in Mangalore and brought up in Mumbai and currently working in Kuwait. His passion for photography has been around from his graduation days. Every once a while he used to dare to hold his uncle's point and shoot Yashica film camera to capture the beautiful moments around him.
