So hold your breath and make your calendar for the upcoming events as I am sure you will contact this one to have dates blocked.

Shootera, a start up founded in April last year by Gaurav Khera, a B. Tech, MBA from IMT Ghaziabad. The brand was actually born out of Gaurav’s passion for web and photography which caters to photography needs across requirements – Weddings, Fashion, Product, Maternity, Events and Video Production. I am sure you are curious to know more. The team boasts of 1000+ professional photographers working with them PAN India across major categories.

We did catch Gaurav to know more about Shootera who said “Shootera aims at helping out people get trusted and verified new age freelance teams for all photography requirements as opposed to other platforms which are only aimed at increasing the listing size and take no responsibility for customer experience in turn. We also help freelancers get more and more business”. Gaurav added “Shootera has its own in house post production team which includes printing as well hence assuring the quality of work”.


Within a short span of existence, the team has already worked with influential names like Make My Trip, IBS Unified, Feministaa.com, FlowerAura, Ledure. The list is not just restricted to corporate but extends to celebrities like Harshaali Malhotra and Arundhati Bhattacharya as well.

Life wasn’t as smooth as it seems right now. Initially the team used to call photographers to be a part of the network and they were used to replies like “we are sorry we don’t wish to be associated with another platform” or “sure we would fill up the form and mail you”, which obviously never came! Gaurav’s professional stint did get the right identity when renowned photographers started calling him to be a part of Shootera!

Gaurav says ‘From people not trusting us as we were a new company for their projects to working today with some of the industry giants, it has been a roller coaster ride!’
