About Me

that's me!

Me

Prathamesh Pai. Born on Nov 18th 1979. 80s kid. Computer programmer & web designer and full time nerd by profession. Started computer programming at the age of 14 and have been doing it since. I love nature, programming, design, illustration & photography.

Work

Computer engineer from Manipal Institute of Technology. Started my 'career' as a web and software developer in 2001. Did not like the idea of working in a mindless software company. Started my own Web Design & Software business, Transducent in 2004. Visiting faculty member at School of Communication, Manipal University from 2005 - 2015. Taught Web & graphic design, 2D animation and photography there and organised web development & programming workshops at engineering colleges.

Photography

Started with a point and shoot film camera in the 90s. Purchased my first DSLR in 2005. Switched back to film in 2011 after getting frustrated with the shoot-a-thousand-frames mentality that had crept in. Now I shoot only film and even develop film at home. I dislike post-processing/editing my photographs beyond occasional cropping and minimal contrast adjustment. I try my best to get it right in the camera.

This website

Place to share some of my work with like minded and interested people and maybe also sell a few prints along the way to fund more film rolls :) 11th version of my personal site since 1998. Designed and Developed by hand on a Mac :) This version uses a computer program I wrote in Python to generate the pages, which were written in html and css. No wysiwyg stuff here, all done in the Vim text editor.
