In 2013 I completed a 2 year Full-Time Photo Imaging Diploma at the North Melbourne Institute of TAFE (NMIT) with Distinction. Before that I completed another six months of part-time studies at the Photographic Studies College (PSC). Since completing the diploma I have been freelancing and photographing weddings for the past 5 years. As a freelancer, I take pride in being associated with some of Melbourne's premier studios such as DUUET, T-ONE, Melbourne Photography etc for 5+ years. Link to my portfolio: www.rohitjhawar.com. Some of my key traits include being patient, observant, caring, skilful with communication, driven and motivated to deliver no matter what the circumstances are. I have been fortunate to live my dream each day. Nothing could be more rewarding than being out there sharing my passion with like-minded people and to be able to give with compassion and love.
When i look at an art work, may that be a painting, photograph or a sculpture it inspires me to create something with my own hands, that is meaningful and possibly also a gift, a way of giving. My images are often minimalistic and so is my life. Great design excites me, whether its furniture, a piece of jewellery or architecture, it brings a child like twinkle in my eyes. I have been fortunate enough to live my passion, to safeguard it with a selective approach and have this enormous appetite to learn, excel, and experience endlessly.
Events are a grand celebration; people come together from all walks of life to live this special day to the fullest. I like being there because I like being in the moment, with people, with landscape, with life and to share with them whatever little I know. It also means that being in such a field of work one needs to be patient, observant, caring, skilful with communication, driven and motivated to deliver no matter what the circumstances are because you do not get a second chance. These traits make me equally well suited for Portraiture and People photography opportunities.
I do not participate in awards and recognitions programs. To me to be able to live the passion and dream that i am living is in itself the greatest reward.
8 years ago i gave up on everything to pursue my passion for photography... I will tell you another one, a beautiful photographer once told me that even in the darkest of places if you look keenly enough you will find the light, since then i have valued natural light to the utmost and made it the very essence of my work
