A fun night out at the GQ Men of the Year Awards at the Hyatt Grand in Bombay. It was kinda cool to meet and photograph so many Bollywood stars in one go.

One strobe behind the gold rickshaw to blow out the background and a big Broncolor Para to light and soften the actors/subjects. Kudos to GQ Art Director Brendan Allthorpe and Photo Editor Gizelle Cordo for a great job on the rickshaw.

In these photos: (in order of appearance) Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Karan Johar, Abhay Deol and the GQ India team

I had an amazing journey to Jaipur recently shooting a fashion/ad campaign for Anokhi. We photographed our model inside the textile factories in which the clothes were actually made, incorporating the workers and processes within the campaign.

Though I can’t post the finished photos yet, i did manage to capture a few of the characters that I met along the way. They range from block printers, to silk screeners and gold dusters. It was a great opportunity to see first hand how many of the clothes we wear in the west are made.
