about studio times
 

Studio Times Limited is a professional photographic studio. Its business focus is advertising and commercial photography and the provision of a quality printing service to the amateur and professional photographer. Two of its unofficial aims, however, are the development and promotion of photography as an art form and the creation of an awareness and appreciation of Sri Lanka's heritage - that is, its natural, archaeological and cultural wealth.

In pursuing the latter objectives, Studio Times maintains an extensive library of photographs (both in colour and black and white), has held several exhibitions and published a few books. Weekly columns were run in the press. These included a photo-feature titled The Island (in The Island) every Saturday, two features The Islet and Our Heritage with colour photographs and quotations from acclaimed authors on Sri Lanka (Sunday Island) and two features comprising of a photograph and a essay in the Wide Wild World page (Daily News) and the other on the Environment (Sunday Times). In the late sixties, Studio Times ran a Gallery which was the only permanent venue at that time at which artists and sculptors could exhibit and sell their work. The exhibits included the work of Richard Gabriel, Ivor Baptist, the posthumously celebrated Fareed Uduman and the much renowned Tissa Ranasinghe. It is the only photographic establishment in Sri Lanka which has long been associated with such activities. All its exhibitions, publications, etc., have been undertaken on its own initiative without any sponsorship from the state or any other organisations.

AS SEEN & SAID BY OTHERS

 

ABOUT STUDIO TIMES & NIHAL FERNANDO:

 

"Studio Times has been in photography for a quarter of a century. It has produced several exhibitions and books not arising out of the commercial impulses of photography, but through dedication to the land and the life our country. There is no other studio in the first, second or third world to match its achievement."

- Daily News, 8 December 1987

 

"Truth and beauty in life, animate and inanimate, take a lifetime to unravel, another lifetime to understand, and yet another to capture in words or pictures. Studio Times and its gifted team of camera artists have set themselves the almost impossible task of encapsulating all three in just one span of mortal life - they have, indeed, come remarkably close to succeeding, with unsparing eye and eloquent insight for the enduring images of this lovely land."

- Ian & Roslin Goonetileke, 1987, from the Comments Book of a Studio Times Exhibition

 

Nihal Fernando:
"Nihal is a master of his craft. His ability to capture the delightful play of light and shade is the hallmark of a true artist. This gift does not come easily. Years of experience and a remarkable sensitivity for the wonders of nature and the love of the land have made him a skilled artisan. Whether taken in a fleeting instant or creatively contrived or born of the endless patience of a disciplined craftsman, Nihal's pictures effectively portrayed his undeniable flair for painting with light."

- Chandi Chanmugam, 1.1.87, from the Comments Book of a Studio Times
