"When Dhrumil Desai approached LOCALE Magazine in 2012 as a bourgeoning photographer, he encompassed everything we were looking for - fervor, professionalism and talent. However, I did not quite expect the extraordinary level of skill he has since brought to the team. Dhrumil’s photography is anything but ordinary. His photos are intriguing and sophisticated while being evocative of fine art illustrations. He consistently conveys a distinct and original vision for each of his photo shoots, more than any other photographer with which I have ever worked. He is exceptionally inspired by each and every assignment on which we send him, which is why LOCALE Magazine recently chose him to shoot one of our covers. I am confident that Dhrumil Desai’s photographic art will one day be coveted around the world."
Kristal D., Editor-in-Chief at Locale Magazine
"We worked with Dhrumil a good deal while doing layout work for Locale magazine. Dhrumil often shot some of the hardest editorial pieces that included lots of models, lots of locations and often bad lighting - but Dhrumil always did an amazing job! He understands how to use lighting rigs to make sure each shot turns out crisp and he puts the extra time in post-editing to make sure the images are clean and print ready. Such a talented guy to be so young!"
Amy H., Graphics Designer/Co-Founder at Hoodzpah Graphics

Mike S., Market Manager at Locale Magazine
"As a wardrobe stylist, I have worked with Dhrumil on editorial pieces on a number of occasions within the past 6 months. It is always a pleasure to partner with him as he is a creative, organized and talented photographer who is serious about getting great shots yet allows for a relaxed set."
Paula P., Wardrobe Stylist at Dettamoda
"I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked with Dhrumil Desai and his team several times. He’s fun to work with because he allows you to be free and creative. He takes all the ideas and creates a storyboard that flows together seamlessly which lays the pavement for the shoot. Each shoot has its own elaborate storyboard. When he shoots, he guides you through his detailed vision and isn’t afraid to try and test different ideas. His compassion and dedication to creating stunning images, whether it be lifestyle or high fashion, has given me four publications and counting! I’m excited to see what the future has in store. Thanks to his efforts and help!"
Andy L., Model

I have been modeling for quit sometime and was astonished with his way of being able to interact with me on set with such a unique style and professional approach. I would have to say he is one of my favorite photographers that I have ever had the pleasure working with. Thanks for all the great pictures, Dhrumil!"
Joshua B., Model
"Working with Dhrumil was a breeze! All I had to do was show up on time. He brought the whole team (makeup artist, hairstylist, and wardrobe stylists), who were also a pleasure to work with. Dhrumil gives great direction for the facial expressions and poses that look good on camera. I couldn’t be happier with the pictures from the shoot. Thanks Dhrumil!"
