Tarun Khiwal Mumbai photographers

Tarun Khiwal's life journey as a photographer began 20 years ago. With no formal training in the subject, his skills as a photographer were acquired and developed hands-on, learning through his mistakes. Throughout this journey, Tarun has explored the medium without any inhibition; challenging and questioning every rule and notion that governs the visual language.

It has been this fearless approach in expressing his vision that has won him the praise of many, national and international accolades, the likes of which include being the first and only Indian to be honored as a Hasselblad Master.

Tarun is also the first Indian whose work was chosen for the Swiss light manufacturer Broncolor’s annual calendar in 2012, which for the first time saw the calendar deviate from its standard imagery and print blurry fashion images created by Tarun. He was also featured in Tom Ang’s book ‘The Complete Photographer’ as one of the world's 20 top professional photographers.

Tarun’s work has been extensively published in national and international magazines Tank, Vogue, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Marie Claire, L’Officiel, and more. His portfolio today includes clients such as Emirates, L’Oréal, Maybelline, Emmar, Adidas, Nokia, Motorola, Pepsi, Hutch, Nestlé, Sony, Nike, Reebok and Lakme. He has created images of several personalities including international artists Christy Turlington Burns, Yanni, Kitaro and Bollywood superstars, as well as corporate honchos.
