About Rakesh Syal
Born and brought up in Ludhiana he is among the most talented photographers.
An artist by instinct picked up his camera in 1975. Deeply fascinated by the world of photography he never looked back and made a mark in the field of portraiture, still life, product, industrial, fashion, food, interiors and wedding photography.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away …that’s what Syal does …., a maestro who breaths life into his work, making it truly breathtaking.
His works are remarkable for their technical and formal mastery. Still life by Rakesh Syal is class apart. The compositions carry a signature style of his own and are from the genesis of an idea.
A challenge to creativity and technical skills, Rakesh Syal’s portraits are magical. With enigmatic backdrops he creates the best of formal and informal portraits inside and outside his studio.
Nothing succeeds like success and for this artist success is a journey, not a destination. With over 35 years of experience to combine with his exceptional skills Rakesh is very passionate about his work.
His immense talent makes whatever he does highly recognizable and his charismatic power to turn the ordinary into extraordinary!
