GRAZIA India cover story with Disha Patani

November 11, 2018

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.

VOGUE India Beauty story with Diana Penty
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!
Gaurav Gupta Timeless campaign
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.
