Mihir Hardikar was born in Bombay and now lives, works and dreams in Mumbai.

After graduating from the Sir J.J. Institute of Applied Art, he went on to study photography at the Light and Life Academy (www.llacademy.org) in Ooty, where he got multi-faceted grounding in the techniques and aesthetics of photography.

When he is not at work, Mihir loves travelling and trying out new cuisines - both street and sophisticated. He dreams to taste local food across the globe and shoot in the deserted town of Pripyat in the Chernobyl Exculsion Zone some day.

Starting with his dad's humble Minolta Range Finder, Mihir today has shot for
various clients and categories, landscapes and locales, places and products.
