Editorial + Commercial Photographer

Parikshit Rao was born in Bangalore and made in Mumbai, but is most at ease when he is on the move.

After an advertising degree from Mumbai University, he backpacked across the Indian subcontinent for 2 years, working as a travel photographer and writer for Indian and international magazines.

During his 3-year stint as Senior Photographer with Time Out Mumbai, he introduced the magazine's readers to many of the city's secrets. He also led the visual content team at Little Black Book as National Photo Editor.

Parikshit is currently a freelance photographer and works out of Mumbai, Himachal Pradesh and New Delhi, India.
