Rohan Shrestha : The Leading Gorkha Photographer in Bollywood

Rohan Shrestha (born 6 March 1985) is an Indian born Gorkha photographer who lives and works in Mumbai, India. Son of celebrity photographer Rakesh Shrestha, his photographs have made the cover of several prominent magazines including L'Officiel, Cosmopolitan, FHM, HiBlitz and Filmfare among others. Since his first editorial in May 2009 with L’Officiel India, Rohan has become a permanent fixture in the photography world today. His first celebrity cover, the Filmfare Magazine's June 2010 issue (shot when he was 25 years old) with Ranbir Kapoor was a huge coincidence considering Rohan's father, Rakesh Shrestha, had started his career way back in the 70s with Ranbir's mother Neetu Singh. He would later work with Ranbir on many other projects soon after. Being one of the younger photographers in the industry today, his sense of creativity and his style of shooting with a difference, is what makes him popular today. 

With barely 4 years since going solo, Rohan has the distinct advantage of shooting a large number of celebrities including Kareena Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Karan Johar, Anupam Kher, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhishek Bachchan, Anushka Sharma, Vidya Balan, Imran Khan, Abhay Deol, Kalki Koechlin, Sonakshi Sinha, Dia Mirza, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, Prateik, Shraddha Kapoor, Yuvraj Singh and many others. Over the years, Rohan has shot with some of the leading magazines in the country today. These include editorials and cover stories for Vogue, GQ, L’Officiel, Harpers Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Grazia, Marie Claire, Filmfare, FHM, Mans World, HiBlitz, Femina, The Man, Okay, People, Hello!, Architectural Digest and CondeNast Traveller.
