Vipin was born in Kodungallur in mid 70s in a middle class family. His father was a pharmacist who was the greatest influence in his life. He was brought up in villages of Kodungallur and later in Chalakudy a small town on the banks of a branch of Periyar River, as the family migrated after partition of the ancestral properties in 1986. He did his primary and secondary education in Missionary Schools and Colleges in Thrissur. In 1992 he pursued dentistry in Salem VMSDC where he met his sweetheart Dr. Raji. They got married in 2001 while he was doing his Masters in Orthodontics in the same college. They are blessed with Devanshy and Yash. In 2004 he started his practice in Chalakudy.
It was in 1994 when he started photography as a hobby. He bought a used Electro 35 Camera from a camera shop and began experimenting with it. He won few photography competitions in the college with that camera. He then upgraded to Nikon FM2 and F5 in the later years and In 1999 when the world turned digital, he got his first Digital fixed lens SLR Fuji Fine pix 6900. Though he was using this camera primarily for shooting his patients, he portrayed some fine moments outside the academia as well. But still the usage of the digital camera was limited to travel and camping to an extent.
The shutterbug bit him agin in 2006 in the form of Flickr.com and he has been shooting birds, landscapes, portraiture, food etc., from eversince.
He maintains an account in flickr as challiyan and also have also contributed 1000s of pictrures to wikimedia.

Challiyan is the nickname of Dr.Vipin C.P. He is an Orthodontist and a dentofacial Orthopaedician by profession. He is also a serial entrepreneur who started 3 companies in last 3 years. Everything looks best in a certain angle. A Good photographer should have the instincts to visualise it and portray. Photography to Vipin is a childhood passion. Although he couldn't get hold of a camera of his own until he was 26, photographs have stirred his soul always. With the mediocre cameras he could afford in the initial years, he has created his mark among many professionals who has gadgets that are whimsical. He proved to world that the camera is just a medium. Evidently, the camera and the lenses are only secondary to the vision of the photographer. Most of the works that you see here is shot with basic cameras like Nikon D40 and D 90s or even point and shoot cameras like Sony *-T20. He now shoots with Canon d5 Mark 2 and Mamiya 645 FAD medium format and a whole bunch of premium lenses. You can expect mind blowing images from his new set possessions. As an orthodontist, he was trained extensively in facial aesthetics and beauty. With the same skill that he treats his patients to achieve beautiful smile, he captures his subject?s fine moments too. This training has given him an edge over others to see the angle in which everyone looks beautiful.
