Fashion Photography

When did you start photography and what was your first shoot like?

In 2012, I did my first shoot which was at a wedding event where I worked as an intern for a year under Mehta Productions.

When was your first fashion shoot?

With all the knowledge I had gathered from my seniors, in the year 2014, I finally decided to do a fashion shoot on my own. That's when I took my first big step.


For your first fashion shoot did you have to do any preparations ?

Yes, I had to buy wireless speed lights and reflectors. I already had a camera and I wanted to shoot outdoor in nature with natural lights. Each shoot has to be conceptualised and there is a certain detail that need always attention.

Is there any advice you give your model before a shoot?

Its so important that a model gets a good sleep so that he/she is fresh for the shoot and the eyes don't look tired. A good night's sleep helps with clear skin and a clear mind too.

How has your journey been as a photographer?

My journey has been challenging and in a short time I managed to work with brands like Easy Cappuccino, Dr. Bubbles, MyGlamm, TBZ , Paseo, Mothers recipe pickles, Gayatri Jewels, Kanakratna Jewellery, Nora Jewellers, Chirpy Sparrow, Cape of Good Soap, Pallavi Jaswani, Myzha fashion, INIFD Panvel, CHASA and some weddings.

What are your future plans?

I recently collaborated with Niche Academy where I will be sharing my experience and knowledge with aspiring models and photographers. I would also love to work on more conceptualised fashion shoots and capture more brands in the future.
