Enochs is a fashion and commercial photographer based out of Mumbai, India. We
recently had the opportunity to interview the upcoming photographer on his work,
inspirations and goals.
IM: Can you tell us a bit about your training as a
I started working in this field about 4 years ago when I was assisting Mr Sahil
Mane. He has taught me the basics of photography and also helped me improve my
techniques. After that, I did a course in photography from the prestigious
‘Shari Institute of Photography’. It was an additional thing that helped me
polish my skills.My learning will never end as every time I do a photoshoot, I
learn something new and discover something that I did not know. This is what
helps me become better.
IM: What inspires you
the most? Joshua:
Anything and everything can inspire me. Having said that, I think that a camera
is something that inspires me the most. When I see it in front of me, I feel the
rush to do full justice to it. It is my method of communicating with people by
telling them what is going on in my mind. I believe in the cliché that a
picture is worth a thousand words. This also saves me the time to say a thousand words everyday!
IM: Do you have a favorite shoot that you worked on? Joshua:
A while back, I was working for a NGO called ‘We the People Foundation’ as a
freelancer. I have done a few conceptual shoots for them, majorly on the sexual
abuse of women in India. These shoots depicted how a woman is mistreated during
festivals or when she wears short clothes. My work for this foundation holds a
special corner since it was for a social cause and really elevated my skills.
IM: What got you interested in fashion photography? Joshua:
My liking for fashion photography started when I was working for Sahil Mane. To
me, fashion is one’s own style. It shows how one individual’s style is followed
and adapted globally. This is what I love about photography-One photo can
change the world!
IM: Do you see yourself more of a technical or a creative
Most of my freelance work has been more on the creative side. I have worked
more on concepts and products which have been appreciated on social media platforms.
I feel these bring out the best of me and hence I like to rack my brains on
doing something new every time I hold the camera.
IM: If you could shoot at any location in the world, what
place would you choose? Joshua:
I am yet to explore each and every corner of India since it has some beautiful
places that I want to visit. I feel that once I’m entirely satisfied with our
country I will think about going out of it. So for now, I want to go to Leh
Ladakh to explore its beauty and express that in my photographs.
IM: You are still very young, where do you see yourself ten
years from now? Joshua:
My aim is very simple- To be the most renowned photographer in the world. I
want to be the man behind London and Paris Fashion Week where I will be working
with the top models of the world. Well, that’s what every photographer dreams
