More about Dhani O....

What do you love about your job?

I don't have a job. Photography is just part of me. It's like asking me what do you love about your arms & legs.

I carry a camera with me everywhere I go because it helps me see the world in a special way. It lets me see the beautiful moments that unfold every second around us. When I capture a moment, I am in a pure state of joy.

Working with clients on their projects is a dream. I get to enter their imagination and show them what's possible. I love being challenged and working to craft the vision they have for their product, portrait, event or concept.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I've shot everything from pre-natal, weddings, commercial, editorial, events, product and kids birthday parties.

Good photography is not about knowing how to use your camera or lights. It's about being in a moment and connecting with the people that you are trying to capture. In order to do that effectively, you have to be prepared. Do you research, talk to your clients, bring the right gear, scout your location and get to know your clients before the shoot.

All of this preparation helps you to relax and allows you to connect with your client(s) so they can relax and be in the moment. And then click, you have captured something that will live forever.

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

I have not entered any photo contests and don't really focus on this stuff, but maybe I will start hahahaha.

A fun fact about this photographer

I'm heavily into fitness and meditation and have opened a couple of gyms in the city. I've also been meditating for over 25 years and am frequently asked to give workshops on mindfulness, creativity and performance by fortune 500 corporations. I think the discipline and focus fitness and mindfulness have given me make me a better photographer.
