Dimitris Alexandrou was one of the first models I photographed early in my career and I was also the one who did his very first shoot. He is a very close and dear friend and a muse for me. For this particular shoot, I just asked him to come and do some body shots and some nudes.
For me, it was almost like going back to where I began as a photographer which was doing these test-shoots for models where there were no clients or teams involved. It was just about having an “open-day” where models walked in, sat in front of me for 15-20 min and we had fun taking photos.
For this cover story for Grazia India, I was shooting the super sexy Disha Patani. I love shooting outdoors! It is fun and it is quick paced.
We were shooting a beauty story for Vogue India with the gorgeous Diana Penty. A hair story to be exact and Diana Penty is the perfect girl for a story like this… she’s got really amazing hair!
This was a really fun campaign to shoot. Indian Couture designer Gaurav Gupta does very architectural dresses. There is so much construction that some of the dresses give you the impression they can stand on their own. They are very strong and very bold, much like the women and the Bollywood crowd that likes to wear them.
Vogue India is featuring the beautiful and very talented Bollywood actress Aditi Rao Hydari for the first time on its cover.
Sonakshi Sinha is so cool! She is like your buddy who plays dress-up for a couple of hours and then goes back to being normal.
This is an amazing quality that comes across so effortlessly and makes her, in my opinion, as successful as she is.
