Hemali Photo

Chapter: San Francisco /
Pro Type: Photographer

I am a native of Mumbai – a city of 12 million with a spirit of gold and a determination to never say die.

With the same spirits, I moved to San Francisco in 2003 to pursue my passion of Photography and study for a Masters in photography from Academy of Arts University.
Smelling the salty ocean water, watching the early morning fog roll into the narrow city streets, listening to fog horns made it hard to leave this beautiful city. This has been my home ever since.

I am in absolute love with my passion for photographing people, especially when they are in motion. I am a very easy-going and understanding person... literally I am so flexible that, I can bend my thumb backward touching my wrist.

I see myself spending my entire lifetime depicting moments of exhilaration, systematic synchronization and elaborate sets, bringing to life what I see in my wildest dreams.
