Local Photographer Finds the Best Light

Nimal Perera took his love of photography all over the world

Local photographer, Nimal Perera, continues to follow his passion for photographing people and families. After retiring from a 37-year-long career in manufacturing, Nimal has been a professional photographer for the last 6 years and is also a member of the Professional Photographers of America Association. “Photography has been a passion of mine all throughout my working life.” His favorite style of photography involves working with outdoor natural lighting. 

His original love for photography began in Sri Lanka, where he was born. Nimal once had a teacher who had a film camera that inspired and mentored him. Nimal said he even set up a dark room in his family home to develop his own pictures as well as his teacher’s photos.

“I couldn’t afford a camera to do that, and my teacher graciously agreed to loan me his camera if I needed it. The photos he was showing us as students inspired me to photograph people and the world at large.” 

Although Nimal earned his accredited degree in mechanical engineering from the  University of Sri Lanka, he kept his love for photography throughout his travels around the world. He moved to Montreal to work and continued to work for the same company until he retired as a manufacturing executive in Canada and the United States. He later moved to California and at another point in time after that, Boston, Massachusetts for his work. 

After returning to California in 2013, Nimal completed a professional photography program.

In addition to his professional pictures, he took photographs of his three children and his wife for his own personal collection. His other hobbies include gardening, golfing, and traveling with his wife. A fun fact about Nimal is he now speaks four languages: Sinhalese, English, French, and Italian. Having worked with City Lifestyle for the past several months, Nimal is a hardworking and passionate individual that puts his family and the community first. He would be honored to take your picture.
