The One : Hitesh Chhabria
Photographer /Cinematographer/ Office -Boy / Editor / Post-Production Manager / Helper / Director /Artist @ TPBH
Hi, nice to meet you :)
I am at Hitesh Chhabria, I am not much of a talker, but I am a great listener. Having done my masters in commerce, I have had a long association with entertainment at companies like Prime Focus Ltd. and Reliance MediaWorks.
Ten years ago I started out as a film editor working in advertising, music videos and TV shows. Those years taught me all about visual storytelling, using movement to create continuity and choosing the right shot for the right moment. Pictures can speak a thousand words and that too in a span of seconds. A fact that reaffirmed my faith in its inherent uniqueness. Wedding photography has been a passion, yes we all love making tall claims about that unique process through which fate gets us baptised forever, marriage. But I thought let’s do away with the claims and let the camera do the talking. Let it candidly capture all that others fail to observe and we ourselves are too engrossed to notice. Beyond the chaos is a connection. Beyond the connection is the hidden chemistry that rib-tickled two hearts and convinced them to function as one.
I’m still telling stories today – but of two people, and in a single frame. Being a wedding photographer is the best job I can imagine. Every week I work with people who are experiencing the happiest day of their life with their very closest friends and family. Of course replace media with IMAGE-MAKING and the entertaining bit just stays where it is. One of the most important things in my life for me are the people around me i.e. my friends & my family. Especially my MOM. She is the one who made me who I am, she is the one who taught me everything I know and she is the one supporting me in everything that I do, no matter what. I am very lucky to have her as my MOM.
Besides all of the above I am a music buff, cinema lover, travel enthusiast & impromptu chef. Also, I am a FOODIE and can probably kill for a pound of a French fries & a handcrafted tandoori chicken. If you ever need a place to go for one, ask me, I can recommend some of the best places in the city!
I live and breathe MUMBAI and truly believe there's no other place, which can compare to the best city ever. I live in Mumbai and travel to wherever my photography assignments take me.
Enough about me, let's get back to what You’re looking for !!
