Saminda had spent his childhood days meddling with cameras and lenses and looking at his father working in his studio. In school, he showed his talents in drawing. But, both at school and college, he was more interested in Electronics and Physics. He graduated, majoring in Physics, from the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka. All this time, a part of him was always urging him to do something with his artistic talents. When he came to the US to do his graduate studies at New Mexico State University, he started to see new opportunities to improve his skills in photography and he grabbed them instantly. Being a talented photographer, he’s more interested in landscape and macro photography. Now an Electrical Engineer by profession he spends every minute of his leisure time with the camera.
