I love shooting outdoors! It is fun and it is quick paced.
For this cover story for Grazia India I was shooting the super sexy Disha Patani. Fashion Editor Pasham Alwani wanted to do a sporty story with a little fashion-“campy” twist. Most images I had seen of Disha Patani before were very glamorous and very sexy and I wanted to shoot her like a model and not like an actress and she delivered big time. Yianni Tsapatori did the hair and Sonik Sarwate did the makeup.
We met quite early in the morning before the sun would be above our heads and this went so fast we were done in less than an hour and a half. I love working with teams I have worked with in the past because there is always such good energy and we know what we want to achieve so speed is up!
When shooting outdoors I go with the natural light 99,9% of the times. Sometimes using just a little light-bounce. I used a Profoto B1 bouncing off a white reflector only for the cover. The sun was still not fully up and I wanted some contrast.
