Thrissur: Vishnu, a photographer by profession has become a celebrity overnight. To get a perfect shot, this photographer climbed the tree and a video of his acrobatic skills went viral on the social media.


Not only did Vishnu climb the tree, but he also managed to balance from the tree upside down a branch, with the goal to get the picture that he visualized. The video demonstrates Vishnu, after clicking the photo from the tree, requesting that the groom to hold his camera, while he easily hops down and leaves like a boss! 

Vishnu works for a wedding photography team called Whiteramp, and he was one of the team member who shot the wedding of Shiaz and Navya on April 15. 

Because of a short video of his remarkable photography strategy, Vishnu is presently making waves in social media! While his activity has left people giggling, they likewise praised him for his commitment. 

Narrating the story behind the viral video, Vishnu stated: “After the wedding, we were shooting outside the groom’s home. When I saw a tree in front his home, I abruptly had a thought of taking a photo from a best point. When I told the couple, they said alright and so I climbed the tree and attempted to click the picture.” 


The climb and the jump was a piece of cake for Vishnu, who stated, in his youth, he had climbed many trees several times! 

Vishnu uncovered this was in fact not the first occasion when he had climbed a tree to take pictures of wedded couples. 

“I have climbed trees somewhere in the range of 4 or 5 times previously and taken photos from above. In any case, for this one, I wanted to see how it would look if I am upside down. Thankfully, it turned out well,” Vishnu said. 

Today, Vishnu is known as the ‘vavval’ (which means bat in Malayalam) photographer, named after his stance on the tree. 

While the photo turned out well, what Vishnu didn’t expect was the popularity it would get him. One of the videographers in his team recorded a video of his ‘stunt’ and shared it on a group. And the reat is history!
