Vishal started out to become an engineer, but a heightened awareness of the visual arts diverted his attention to the camera and its versatility. He started off by assisting a renowned photographer in India for over two years, and soon after he travelled to Paris and Hamburg to acquire more knowledge with respect to the visual medium; after that he decided to start off on his own.
Aspiring to carve a niche in the photography industry, he is well versed in fashion, advertising and editorial work. Vishal describes his work as the constant need to move and evolve. These characteristics of the ever growing fashion world reflect on his photography as well.
Boasting a background in graphic design, his work has often been considered provocative yet unique. His client and publication credits currently includes International and Indian magazines such as Vogue Italia, Adweek, GQ and Cosmopolitan, to name a few. Having worked with advertising agencies such as Ogilvy, Leo Burnett, Toaster, Wunderman Thompson, DDB and Mccann Erickson, among others, his current body of work includes brands such as Dove, Lux, Nokia, YouTube, Sony Bravia and Oriflame.
His work has been exhibited in the prestigious D&AD Awards (London), The World Press Photo, the Dubai Media City (IBDA) and Lalit Kala Academy.
Currently he has been selected as part of 200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide 2021 / 22 by Luerzer’s Archive.
