HARSHAL

HARSHAL KHARKAR

HEAD – PHOTOGRAPHY

Harshal has always been a photographer at heart. Right from the days when he could barely walk, he fought to release the shutter cord on his father’s old camera.

After almost dropping out of school to pursue his dream, he got a double degree in photography and began his journey in 2011. Having assisted number of photographers, He then moved on to set up his own studio where he shot products for high-end brands.

At this point he realized the tremendous scope in shooting for e-commerce. He understood that shooting for e-commerce needs a factory approach – a factory that churns out quantity as well as quality. Old school photography was not going to work. He experimented for a year to devise a new glitch-free system to deliver a premium quality product in a very competitive timeframe. It is with this system that he came to Powerweave Studio as the Head of Photography.

Harshal likes to combine his photography skills with his keen business sense. At Powerweave Studio, his vision is to explore and perfect this system to offer unbeatable value to corporate customers.
