Alpesh Patel is a life coach and the author of Tested, a true story about hustle, grit and determination. It’s not a ‘rags to riches’ story, but more about how in life we generally lose a lot more than we win. The book discusses the dark side of entrepreneurship, and the challenge to keep going and following your vision no matter what.
I created these editorial portraits and lifestyle images of Alpesh whilst he was being interviewed for Asian Wealth Magazine. The images have been used in the magazine, and with so much of every photographers’ work living online these days, it’s always fantastic to see my images in a printed publication.
All these portraits were created using the available artificial light inside the room we were in. One of the best things about being a portrait photographer is meeting various people from all walks of life – especially when they are as inspirational as Alpesh.
