Brief Profile:

Swamy was born in Valliwartipadu in Gudivada Mandal in Krishna district, he had settled in Chennai due to his busy work schedule there. He died at Machilipatnam where he had gone to attend a marriage. He was successful in many of his experiments in photography, when technology is not as extensively developed as of contemporary times.

During those days, people would stop shooting after 600 pm in the evening cause of the yellow light that degrades quality. However, Mr. Swamy shot a sequence in 'Bhakta Kannappa' in the yellow light and won wide applause for the work from every one. Though he started a film with Srikanth as hero, the project was shelved halfway. His last film as cinematographer was Adavi Ramudu featuring Prabhas.
