What makes Bollywood stars look so gorgeous on social media?

The perfect camera angles!

Photographer Shivam Gupta knows just how to make the stars shimmer even brighter in photoshoots.

The 28-year-old Delhi native has been passionate about taking pictures since he was a teen.

"Every school trip, vacation, party, or no matter the event, I enjoyed taking photographs more than the occasion itself," Shivam tells Ronjita Kulkarni/Rediff.com.

When he turned 19, he came to Mumbai to pursue his passion for photography.

"Luckily, after eight months of struggle, I got the opportunity to assist Colston Julian, one of the finest photographers in the country. Assisting him for a couple of years helped me learn a lot," Shivam says.

Preity Zinta was the first star Shivam photographed as an independent photographer.

"I am fortunate to work with some of the most talented and amazing people in the industry," he says. "You get to learn from every person, every project. I enjoy my time with most people I work with, like Dia Mirza, Mrunal Thakur, Kiara Advani, Yami Gautam, Nushrratt Bharuchha, Mouni Roy, Rakul Preet, Akansha Ranjan, Ayushmann Khurrana... They are not only great at their work but are also amazing people."

Shivam showcases some of his best photographs here, and reveals interesting facts about the stars.
