Brief Summary
Adil is a photographer and filmmaker based in Mumbai, India. He has been doing commercial and personal documentary & travel photography for over 10 years and directing ad films and short films for 3 years.

The son of an Army officer, Adil grew up traveling widely across India and the US and studying at 9 different schools. He received his B.A. in English Literature from the University of Delhi in 1997 and an AAS in Photography (with Honors) from Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming in 1999. He had the tremendous fortune of studying under Steve Smith – who taught for only 3 years before returning to photojournalism and winning a Pulitzer Prize in Photography. After graduating he assisted Sante d’Orazio, Mark Abrahms and Ranjit Grewal in New York on editorial and advertising shoots, including cover shoots with Heidi Klum and Claudia Schiffer.

His earliest artistic influences were his mother and grandfather, both of whom paint. He has sought to balance his commercial photography career with personal documentary work, and he enjoys both in equal measure.
