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.

Gaurav Gupta’s universe is very moody and quite dark at times, like a “Brothers-Grimm” fairytale. I wanted to take this “construction” and “darkness” but keep the fairytale feeling. At the same time, I wanted to “erase” the Gaurav Gupta visual vocabulary and start fresh.

First of all, we constructed this big, heavy, plexiglass platform with lights underneath and had the models laying down. Since the lights we used were LED and kino-flo lights, in order to achieve to achieve enough luminance we had to place quite a few lights underneath the platform. Technical lesson learned: you can never have too much light! Finally, we used a crane with a seat on the edge and I was placed right above them. Check out the video to catch a glimpse!

The result is so light and so dreamy. The models look like they are floating on air just waking up from a slumber ready to go to the ball. Starring models were Diva Dhawan, Irene Augustin, Arya Bhatt, Jason Shah and Guri Sekhon. The stylist was Gautam Kalra and hair and makeup was done by Marianna Mukuchyan.

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
