This was a fun day at the studio, with a really cool team.

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!

Vogue India Beauty Editor Nidhi Sharma and Art Director Heidi Volpe had a few elements/trends they wanted to showcase in this story.

When shooting for a beauty story obviously the key element has to be either the hair or the makeup, whatever you do with your lighting or your composition, those elements have to remain clear.

Since the focus on this day was the hair, the makeup was easy.  Makeup artist Sandhya Shekar had to give Diana glowy skin and a touch of mystery with the eyes.

Michel Baltazar was the hair stylist and he showcased the 5 trends, wavy/straight hair, parted hair with embellishments, bun with loose hair, a 70’s inspired blowout style and cornrows.

I especially loved the way Priyanka Parkash styled this story. Each look had a different styling story to tell but she kept a gorgeous autumn-leaf palette of warm browns and khakis throughout keeping the story together.

I chose to light this directly above Diana’s head with a beauty dish and I wanted a very directional sharp-ish light that would light everything beautifully but would also give me a strong directional contrast. I shot from a low angle because I loved how the light fell on Diana’s beautiful face structure making her look almost statuesque.

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
