About Me

Hello, I am Shahzad Bhiwandiwala, a fine art fashion and portrait photographer from Mumbai currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area in California, USA. After a brief stint in the corporate world of Human Resources, I decided to make a career out of my passion for photography.

Ever since I was a boy, I have had a deep appreciation for the visual medium of story telling be it stills, theatre or movies. As I started creating my own stories, I chose photography as my medium to tell the stories that I conjured up in my head. In my pursuit of being the best version of the artist I can be I have racked up a few achievements that I am particularly proud of; I am an alumnus of the Eddie Adams Workshop Batch XXXIII, a first place Advertising-Fashion awardee at the International Photography Awards, CA Award winner, a Phase One Certified Professional and a professor in the photography department at San Jose State University.


Through photography, I have met  many like minded people who have helped me bring some of these stories to life. If you have a story you want to tell or want to help me tell one of my stories, while adding your own touch to it, feel free to reach out.
