S. Krishna is an Indian cinematographer and film director who primarily works in Kannada films. He gave a new dimension for cinematography through his breath taking visuals in “Mungaru Male” which is considered as a romantic cult classic. Though Krishna's cinematography impressed people and the critics, he didn't come into his own until he did the challenging Mungaaru Male.
The film was shot in 80% natural rain, generally not cinematography friendly. It also needed to be shot in other precarious conditions like the dangerous, rocky top of the Jog Falls. Krishna has taken up the challenge, and has done the job admirably. The film was a box office success and one of the major contributors to its success was Krishna's cinematography. He was duly recognized by the Karnataka State Government when they named him the Best Cinematographer for the year 2006.
When he was at his peak of his career as a cinematographer he challenged himself to be a director. He has directed “Gajakesari” featuring Yash which has broken all of the previous records of Yash thereby catapulting him as the next big star in the Kannada film industry. Gajakesari has even won Karnataka State Film Award for Best Entertaining Film of the year 2014.
