SHANTANU SHEOREY is best known for his strong visual style.
For over three decades he has been creating some of the best remembered campaigns. Whether it was the original ‘Taste the Thunder’ campaign with Salman Khan, or ‘Only Vimal’ with Viv Richards, Ravi Shastri and Allan Border or the famous ‘Garden Vareli’ saree campaigns, first with Madhu Sapre and then with Aishwarya Rai, and more recently the ‘Dabangg 2’ movie posters, all of these have a stamp of his visual mastery.
Shantanu was the undisputed bohemian of fashion photography in India. A pioneer of many hues, he set the rules, redefined them, bent them and almost always, broke them. Having started his career in the early eighties, at a time when the genre was at its relative infancy in India, his pushing of the medium was constant, incessant, in a journey that is best defined by the fact that you could never really define it.
He shoots – stills and directs TV commercials for a vast array of products and clients, which make him an ideal person to mentor and teach photography and multimedia.
Shantanu has extensively photographed the Jaggnath Puri ‘Rath Yatra’ over a period of five years. He is now working towards publishing this collection as a coffee table book.
He is currently working on ‘Photography as Digital Art’, and is experimenting with various subjects and formats.
Shantanu has attended numerous photography and film workshops in the USA, and has conducted some in India as well.
He brings his passion and experience to you.
