In my spare time, I sometimes like to do some modeling.
So back in LA, I got it touch with Ratan to plan a photoshoot downtown.
He had recently moved to town and needed some content for his portfolio, while I wanted some nice pictures for myself (and Instagram :) ).
Turns out we were both keen on in-depth conversations and got to know each other quickly during the shoot.
I was floating from one emotion to another as we were telling each other’s about our passions, vulnerabilities, fears and dreams.
Truth is, Ratan is specialized in female portraits, with a focus on raw genuine emotions.
He blends storytelling and photography to create unique portraits that tell a story through the eyes of the models he shoots.
He also has a superpower that makes his creations unique.
