The lens has always fascinated me. And for as long as I remember, during my growing up years, I would always visualize things around me, through the viewfinder. It’s the perfect frame that entices me, studio or outside.


My tryst with camera began in college days when I directed and produced several short films and was lucky enough to learn from the masters of the trade. A brief stint with the Mumbai Film industry was enough for me to understand my calling. In fact, thanks to this experience, today my strength lies in understanding the need of Art Directors, and thus getting them the exact results has become easy. 

My days of experimenting with different lights have helped me get an edge to achieve what I want technically, rather than a fluke. I was associated with CANON for a good long period and hold workshops for budding photographer all over India. Now I am associated with ELINCHROM-India and developed video tutorials for how to effectively use Elinchrom Lights in photography.

My experience with Adobe Photoshop is as old as Adobe Photoshop in India.  What started as an experiment soon led to obsession. Today, it is like a challenge; every picture that I want in a certain way, I click it in original, minimising the Photoshop work coz I know where the picture would need tweaking on the desk and hence, I eliminate the chance as much as possible.

Shoots set my creative side rolling.  Add to it, a dash of glamour; throw in some oomph, mix some high music and its gets my adrenaline rushing. I might come out as a bit of an introvert but I can talk endlessly with my shutterbugs. My first camera was a DSLR, Canon 400D that I bought in 2007 and after fiddling with it for two years, I was industry ready.

In 2010, I entered into professional photography and purchased a Canon 5D Mark II DSLR. My work has been published in several national publications like Femina, cosmopolitan, Grazia, Hindustan times, Wedding Affaires, Asiana Weddings, GrehashobhaSakhi and others. I have also done the Advertising campaign for IPL Team Pune Warriors.

Having worked with many fashion designers and models from around the world, I realise, it’s always the natural moments that we capture which make for the best ones. I finally rewarded myself with a Hasselblad 4D in 2013 and it seems the journey has just got better since then.

So, here I take a plunge into the world of colours and ready to shoot the right things the right way!

Vipin Gaur is one of those photographers, who captures multiple; yet minute elements in a single frame. The most brilliant aspect of his photography is the style and spirit, which is vivid and vibrant. The way he captures colours and his sense of contrast and moment-of-capture is wonderful. His photographs reflect the elements of nature, as well as the expressions. His photographs have a soul and evoke positive emotions perfectly. The photographs have a mesmerizing effect on the viewers and leave a wisp of thought and the image sets in the memory.

His pictures speak, and bring out the emotions, expressions and characters quite wonderfully. His choice of angle backdrop also makes the whole experience dreamlike, yet very real and colourful.

Vipin Gaur likes to take care of every little thing before, during and after the shoot! It’s not just about his frames, it’s about the experience. The way he prepares for a shoot, his understanding of the theme and concept his selection of backdrops and lights; he makes sure the final result is nothing less than perfect!

I have seen him evolve as a photographer. It is rare to find a serious learner in a field which is all about casual attitude. With strong work ethics and a focused approach, I can assure Vipin is headed for the right direction
