Dimitris Alexandrou

March 18, 2019

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.

I love how he comes into a shoot uninhibited and unafraid. He always trusts the photographers he works with and always elevates the images.

For this particular shoot, I just asked him to come and do some body shots and some nudes.

For me, nudes are like portraits but very intimate. It takes a level of trust and communication between both the photographer and the model to achieve a result that transcends the obvious nudity and create a story, a narrative.

Nudes are a favourite type of shoot for me. It makes me look past the obvious, and it makes me humble. I always feel extremely lucky when a model or any subject for that matter shows me this trust.

Dimitris Alexandrou is one of the best models for me to do these shoots.

Jacqueline Fernandez for Brides Today April 2019
Brides Today had the dream girl of Bollywood Jaqueline Fernandez as their April cover girl adorning “vintage" cocktail gowns and traditional looks. It is always fun to shoot with Jacqueline. She is always in great energy and delivers 200% so she makes it very easy for the entire team to deliver their best also.
Conde Nast Traveller x Sabyasachi April 2019
This shoot was a very exciting shoot for me. I had wanted to go to Seychelles ever since I was a child and as a photographer I discovered paradise. For me personally, I love to shoot with natural light and nothing more and Desroches gave me the absolutely perfect scenery for that.
Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan for Filmfare 2019
I have been working with both Varun and Alia for quite some time now. I have to say that this was probably our most mature collaboration so far. They are both extremely hard working and it was so amazing to see them grow. The confidence of both of them on this particular shoot was so amazing to witness
