It’s been roughly a decade since I started on my photographic journey. I’ve experimented plenty with techniques, creativity and then some.

This new personal project titled ‘Inspire’ is for me to step out of my comfort zone and think out of the box. Each day I work with a new team, photograph and edit the selected images (the same day).

What inspired me to take up this challenge? Every day I come across a plethora of ideas that I jot down in my journal. These ideas piled up and became a gateway to reality. Because of this, it was important for me to work efficiently.

Beauty and fashion are what define Rutvik Katuri and his photography. With roots in India and the US, Rutvik graduated from the NYFA in early 2017.

Seeking inspiration from the multicultural cities he's grown up in, his work is a symphony of color and the human form's intricacy. Currently based out of New York, his work has been featured in prominent magazines. Moreover, his work was also been featured and showcased on multiple Time Square billboards.

The one mantra he always lives by is "get inspired, stay inspired, and inspire others”.
