Rameet Chawla Portrait

Fashion, People

Date October 21, 2015
As a photographer, there are the very few people you meet in life who you know you absolutely must capture. Rameet Chawla is one of these individuals. I first met Rameet at the Island Innovators unconference back in April of 2014.

Our mutual friend Courtney Boyd Myers were there as well and I believe she made the introduction. I was already engaged with a series of portraits, but asked Rameet if he had time later that afternoon to do a session with me.

Somewhere between the end of the daily sessions and before the dinner hour, I spotted Rameet in the hallway and asked him if he’d come with me. I had set up a portable studio in the bar, and as everyone was milling about upstairs, we had the entire area to ourselves.

While there are a number of shots from this series, this horizontal Rameet Chawla portrait is one of my absolute favourites. To date, it’s graced a number of articles and magazine covers, and serves as Rameet’s profile photo on instagram.

Speaking of which, if you’ve found this portrait through a search and would like to license it’s usage, please contact me.
