New York Film Academy (NYFA) Photography alum Apeksha Agarwal recently had her editorial, Radiant Rose, published in the eleventh issue of LeFair Magazine.
Agarwal hails from India and has studied and worked across the globe. After working in business, Agarwal decided to move to New York to pursue her passion for photography, enrolling in the 1-year Photography conservatory at NYFA’s New York campus in Fall 2016.
“While Appy was a student, she continually pushed herself to learn, and create outstanding imagery,” NYFA Chair of Photography David Mager says of Agarwal. “It’s great to see that she is still growing in her process, and is being recognized in the industry for her beautiful work.”
Her latest editorial, Radiant Rose, features stunning photos that make use of dark shadows and the bright red of a large blooming rose. You can see her work on pages 44-48 of LeFair Magazine’s eleventh issue here.
Agarwal has been busy since graduating NYFA, and has built an impressive portfolio. She has photographed artists and brands including Jade Weber, Tyler Shields, Abla Sofy, Raja Kumari, Nidhi Sunil, and Lulu & Sky. In addition to LeFair Magazine, she has been published in Bella, Elléments, 7Hues, and Imirage. Agarwal has also produced shoots for L’Officiel, Hello India, Cosmo Lady, Urvashi Rautela, Preity Zinta, R. Madhavan, Max Emerson, Inas X, Siddharth Mallya, and Gulshan Grover.
“Photography is my calling, my profession,” Agarwal tells NYFA, “and the thing that will undoubtedly drive me insane someday. I assume perfection is possible, and I want to wring it out of every picture I take.”
