Late last year, I was hired to photograph a political fundraising event for Arun Singh, the current Indian Ambassador to the United States.
Along with honoring of Mr. Singh, Mr. Nadadur Kumar was recognized as a Distinguished California Resident and was presented a plaque from Assemblymember Matt Dababneh, 45th District. Also in attendance was Congressman Brad Sherman who gave a heartfelt introduction for the Ambassador.
Mr. Kumar’s assistant found my Los Angeles event photography through a Google search and the event took place at the Kumar’s Brentwood residence where appetizers and cocktails were served prior to a delicious dinner of authentic Indian fare. A three-piece band rounded out the ambiance with traditional Indian music including a Sitar.
In addition to capturing candids of the event, I also was able to photograph Mr. Kumar’s family portrait. The Brentwood residence – both inside and out – was idyllic for the event and for my photography to capture this special moment in these political figures’ lives.
