The Future belongs to those who Believe in the Beauty of their Dreams “- Eleanor Roosevelt
Whenever he came across books, newspapers or magazines what caught Saurabh Dalvi, co-founder and creative director's attention were images and advertisements. At a point, he realized that he didn’t feature in any of the photographs taken during family functions or trips with friends. This was because he was always behind the camera. Eventually Saurabh came to terms with his thoughts and voluntarily dropped out of engineering to pursue what he was passionate about – PHOTOGRAPHY – As a fulltime career. Hence, he engaged himself in freelance projects where he launched his Label ‘cam catches, ‘in Goa.
After spending ten years in this field, Saurabh feels that photography is a line that is learnt best on field. However he attended a short course on photography to familiarize himself with the technicalities involved in photography. But this education didn’t seem enough, so he approached the photographer he looked up to, Gautam Rajashyaksha. Getting trained by Late Shri. Rajadhyaksha was the best opportunity and that is what transported Saurabh from Goan Shores to Mumbai.
He says Freelancing lets him have the time out to think and be himself, this in turn is important for any artist to come along with new ideas and improved vision.
Saurabh currently based in Goa, shoots weddings, fashion, lifestyle, portraiture, commercial, urban landscapes, architecture and scenes of everyday life. He has also has recently ventured into creative event photography. His photographic style is relaxed, innovative and is inspired by fine art photography, design, art, architecture and the world around him. His aim is to capture every photograph with the right amount of reality in it. In this way he gives his clients good images plus a memory to cherish.
Saurabh has the talent for capturing peak moments of emotion from laughter to tears. He uses light to add a dynamic range to his emotionally charged images.
Reality is his style, He says. He would rather show what is real than process what isn’t. He always prefers the candid style be it for Lifestyle, Portraitures or the creative events. This in turn adds more of a natural look to what he tries describing through his work.
