Hi, I’m Dev
I’m a fashion photographer based in Mumbai, India. Have been in love with my camera for long, but with time grew my fondness towards fashion photography due to the creativity it can bring out of someone. I’ve hosted this website, devdattaphotographer.com, to show you what I do, what I love and who I am.
My work is defined by an attentive use of concept, fashion & colour – three of my favourite things. I love spending time evaluating all these aspects before a shoot, planning a lighting setup that creates the exact mood I want the images to convey and colours that enhance that same feeling, all working in harmony with one another. I personally believe a good planning is the utmost important aspects for an impeccable outcome. I’ve always been in love with every single thing that involves fashion. In my work I try to follow an attractive and minimalist line, being consistent with my own style.
Over the past few years, I have worked with some incredible people both in front of and behind the camera to create portfolios I am so very proud of. The camaraderie built with these people is something that I cherish.
Beauty is a flamboyant spectacle; it never goes unnoticed. Thankfully, I have worked with models who don't go with the trend, they set the trend. The secret to fashion photography is not being perfect. What one needs is an image that people can identify in a second. You have to create what’s needed to bring something new.
Ethical fashion is the recognition that there are human beings behind the clothes that we wear. I believe in complete transparency and truthfulness in my work. I would rather not take up an assignment rather than leaving a foul taste. To me, clicking is not about pressing a button in the camera, but an effort to capture an unforgettable image.
Come let’s create something stunning…..
