About Himanshu

Himanshu Pahad is a renowned professional photographer based in Baroda, (Gujarat) India. He studied Photography at the Faculty of Fine Arts, M S University, Baroda and pursued an Advanced Course in Photography at the Film & Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune. He underwent training in different aspects of printing technology with professionals in London, Glasgow and Cologne. He has attended workshops by German photographer Thomas Luttge who specialises in heritage monument photography. He taught photography in the Dept. of Museology, and was Documentation Photographer at the Dept. of Art History & Aesthetics, M S University. He has conducted numerous workshops on Photography all over India. He has travelled across the world on photography assignments.

His exposure to art at the Faculty of Fine Arts made him sensitive to the nuances of color and shadow, making him an obvious choice with contemporary artists for documenting their works of art. Every photographic assignment taught him a lesson in furthering his own understanding about what photography can do; in not only sharpening his technical skills but keeping his mind open to embrace new technologies, and most importantly, the commercial aspect of assignment. It is because of these qualities that Himanshu's demand in the international wedding/event shoot has made him the clients’ most preferred photographer to work with. He has also made his niche mark in industrial and product photography, as well as family and individual portraitist. He is an official photographer to the erstwhile Baroda Gaekwad Royal Family, the Rajkot Jadeja Royal Family as well as the Mewar Udaipur Royal Family. His portfolio has an extraordinary list of clients, the who's who of Indian industry, business, professionals, fine art institutions and museums, both within India and abroad. He has a comprehensive portfolio of architectural photography -- both of heritage as well as contemporary architecture. He has documented the work of architects such as the late Manoj Patel as well as Prietzer Prize-winning architect, Balkrishna V Doshi. He has also documented Hafeez Contractor's building for Lakshmi Mittal, the steel magnate based in London. He has sensitively photographed historic places such as Mandu as well as several historic towns in Europe. Himanshu Pahad works out of a smart ultra-modern state-of-the-art photography studio with a smart team. He also oversees all the printing jobs in his in-house printing facility, to make sure that each photograph printed and going out is just the way it was perceived at the time of the shoot. He is the Brand Ambassador of the Sony Alpha series of high-end cameras and photographic equipment.
