Nikhil's journey as a photographer began at Sir JJ Institute of Applied Art, where he acquired a specialization in photography. Following his BFA, he became assistant to renowned photographer Kedar Malegaonkar, who remains a guru and mentor for him. He is also hugely inspired by the work of Steve McCurry, a long-standing idol.


Starting with proactive assignments on film cameras, Nikhil has worked with many leading brands and agencies over a 12-year career. He has experience in a number of sectors, from Advertising, Lifestyle, Fashion, Beauty, Automobiles, Product, Industrial, Arial, and Pharmaceuticals. His talent for creating expressive images that push boundaries, and intimate understanding of technical details quickly made him a sought-after talent.


His imagination, technical knowledge and lighting skill led to Images Bazaar recognizing him as one of the new generation of elite photographers.

Nikhil's shot campaigns for Johnson & Johnson won Gold at the Global Healthcare Awards, the most coveted in the category.
He repeated this success in 2012 with 2 out of 5 nominations at the same event.


He has experience of indoor & outdoor shoots across all categories, and worked with many well-known Bollywood & TV celebrities as well.


Nikhil credits a few special people for supporting him on this photographic adventure called life: his lovely family, as well as Kedar Malegaonkar, Ajmal Mohammad, Raj Kamble, Sunny Arora, Anand Mishra & Sandeep Maheshwari.
