Hi, My name is Alok Brahmbhatt
After being introduced to the camera 11 years ago, as a photographer, I get highly inspired by nature and life around and then I simply cannot resist capturing the beauty of the world around me. When I say life, I mean every living being around me. Though I have consciously chosen to focus on nature as I enjoy being in the lap of Mother Nature, I am a thorough professional when it comes to work inside the studio for various assignments.
My work isn’t limited to capturing pictures, I also write. A major part of my professional experience has been spent in writing. I have written on various photography techniques, interviewed and profiled various renowned names in photography, tested photography equipment for Better Photography magazine which is one of South Asia’s popular photo guide for amateurs as well as photographers. Along with writing and contributing for Better Photography and the Indian edition of Forbes, I have also contributed for other popular titles like Overdrive, AV Max and Disney Adventures. After being associated with publications, I learnt photography National Institute of Design (NID) for a year for further fine tuning of my skills. Along with writing and capturing pictures, I also teach photography. I have been associated with various associations and photography institutions and conduct workshops for amateur as well as professional photographers.

In this project, I worked to the capacity of Director of Photography and converted a case study into a Photo novel which was appreciated by many business schools including HBS.
