Jatin Kampani Mumbai photographers

Jatin Kampani is one of a rare breed who has been able to transform a passion into a career. From being a shutterbug in childhood, Jatin graduated to become a professional photographer in 1996.

A decade on from his professional debut, he became the first Indian photographer to have work selected for the cover of Lurzer's Archive, and this year was featured amongst the magazine's 200 best photographers of the world.

Jatin's images have won numerous accolades at the IPA, Black and White Spider Awards, and at the PX3 Awards, Paris. His work was also selected in the 2006 and 2007 International Photography Awards 'Best of Show' category.

Jatin has completed advertising campaigns for clients including De Beers, World Gold Council, Marriott Incorporated, ITC, L'Oréal, Garnier, Maybelline, Motorola, Bacardi, Seagram's India, ESPN and Pepsi, along with fashion editorials for magazines Elle, Marie Claire, L'Officiel, GQ, OK and Verve.

The photographer's body of work also includes portraits of a number of distinguished individuals. As he negotiates the contours of everything tangible and intangible with his camera, Jatin also silently works towards giving back to his career his first love by promoting photography as an art form in India.
