This is Rahul Patel
We are honoured to introduce to you Rahul Patel. He is an amazing person and a real professional! We are glad to have Rahul as a face for our brand and we are looking forward to working with him very soon!
With a first class degree in Graphic Design at Canterbury Christ Church University, celebrity fashion photographer Rahul Patel, 23 years of age is highly influenced by fashion; Patel certainly makes this evident in his work and puts London on the map when networking his photography work internationally. His name, his logo and his talent has appeared in more than 3 quarters of the world, especially in major locations such as Paris, Milan, New York and Dubai.
In March 2012 Patel received recognition in the Irish Sun newspaper by designing a cover for Universal Records’ artist Da KiD K, which featured their very own Irish Playboy model, Shahira Barry. At the prime of Patel’s career in 2012, he had the honour to be a personal tour photographer for US superstar MANN who has previously worked with 50 Cent.
From a young age Patel has always had an interest in interior design. In August 2014, Patel started interior photography and worked on his first interior project with interior designer Bhavin Taylor. Later on in the year Patel was asked by award winning reggae artist Stylo G to travel to Isle of Wight to photograph his performance at Bestival. To top off the year, Patel was hired by Hampshire based clothing brand Pink Avocet to photograph their AW14/15 collection. One of the photographs from this collection was published in the Tatler December 2014 issue.
