Pratik's affinity for the arts from an early age led him to drawing and painting. His love for still life drawing transformed into still life photography. He is proud to call himself a 3rd generation photographer and hopes to follow his grandfather’s footsteps into the commercial world of photography.
He has a contemporary aesthetic approach which is inspired by the neoclassical art movement of the 18th and 19th century. His images are marked by bold colors, graphical compositions, surrealism and unexpected juxtapositions. His dynamic still life photographs combine an accurate use of technique and creativity of a craftsman.
Pratik lives in San Francisco, operates throughout the west coast and is working towards realizing his dreams.
