Gaurav is one of the finest photographer in India today. I am a great admirer of his work not only in Automobiles but also across pet photography. We have been friends for a while so I have had access to his photographs that he shares over social media platforms and I must say that each and everyone of them is a masterpiece in itself. We have done some projects together and I have found him to be professional to work with and someone who sticks to not only deadline but also all commitments, I am sure he will touch greater heights with the age on his side and wish him the best for future. Creative, Professional, Intelligent, Conscientious and Friendly are words that I associate with him.

Gaurav is one of the most creative and talented photographers that I have met. The first time I had a glimpse of his talent was when I saw his mesmerizing photographs from Africa post the Mercedes GLA drive. There is a certain ‘wow’ factor in all his shots and you can see he has gone the extra mile to get the perfect photograph.

Gaurav has a nice calming energy that makes you feel free and comfortable as the subject of his photographs. He is intuitive and really responsive to the change a model or actor can bring to the scene, and he incorporates this idea into his shot set up fast and seamlessly. It was fun to shoot with him, and I hope to be able to again.

I've seen Gaurav's work for several years now and have been with him on shoots across the country. He's got a great eye for detail and is constantly looking for perfection with just 'one more shot'. That creative eye and desire to be looking for something unique is what sets him apart from a lot of photographers I have come across.
Anchor and Bollywood actor Maniesh Paul Anchor and Bollywood actor
Its been a wonderful experience shooting with Gaurav. He knows his craft really well and knows how to put the actor at ease. He was super fast which helps the actor keeping the mood alive. Loved the way he used the light in the shots.
Bajaj Auto ltd Manish Tandon | DGM Customer Insight Bajaj Auto ltd
Normally bike and car photography compliments the story... playing a supportive role. Gaurav's photography comes out of this limitation and create a story of its own. His mindfulness of the surroundings perhaps make him different from the rest. Such creativity comes with practice and patience. No wonder I always look forward to his work.
Stuff and What Hi-Fi? Magazine Nishant Padhiar | Editor Stuff and What Hi-Fi? Magazine
I consider Gaurav’s work until now to be the Nat Geo of automobile photography. Capturing the perfect moment in perfect light is second nature to him. His outstanding eye for detail makes even the most mundane of urban settings look exotic and aspirational. I wish him all the luck for his future ventures”
Man's World magazine, MW.COM Pablo Chaterji | Managing Editor Man's World magazine, MW.COM
've been an automotive journalist for 14 years, and in all that time, I have to say I haven't seen too many people top Gaurav's automotive photography. He has an excellent eye and produces images that are consistently stunning - not just of cars and bikes, but of dogs as well. I have no doubt he's only going to get better, which will set a seriously high standard for other to follow
Audi India Pooja Singh | Chief Manager, Public Relation Audi India
The only person I know who makes something as tough as auto photography look like a child's play with results as exquisite as the beautiful car subjects. It's always a visual treat to look at the pictures shot by GT Photography - be it in the magazines or instagram. In fact I loved the few experiments he did with pet photography as well. An eye for rendering his subjects and the backdrop look drop dead gorgeous - I wish you all the very best!

Gaurav has an incredible understanding of the importance of light in photography and has used it to really bring out the mood of the moment in every frame he has captured. Every photo he captures transports you to the moment instantly.

Gaurav has been a professional and personal friend for a few years now. He has been photographing Mercedes-Benz and AMG cars in India and across the globe!! If we know it’s Gaurav who will be shooting our products, without a shadow of doubt the outcome will be nothing short or breath taking. One such click that has made an ever lasting mark is the SLK he shot a few years ago. Simply outstanding. And what makes things even better is, he is an extremely humble and easy guy to work with

On our last trip to India in 2017 we had the pleasure of working with Gaurav for a magazine shoot. We found him very professional and easy to work with, probably the fastest photo shoot we ever did and the results were so good we’ve had the images for official use.

Gaurav has been behind the lens for capturing some of the most stunning and surreal images of many cars. He makes the most ordinary looking car exceptionally beautiful, with the dint of his photographic skills. Gaurav got an unique eye for that perfect shot of a car, that very few photo scribes got today. His hard work and penchant for capturing the most riveting shot, often creates an image that lasts in your memory for a long time. We have thoroughly relished some of the most incredibly stunning images he has created. He is truly gifted and a great creative person. Wishing him all the very best for his endeavour.

Gaurav has not only understood the technical side of his chosen area of skill, but is also blessed with a keen eye for detail, the aesthetic and natural beauty. He often finds the right colour or emotion with his lens that few can. I've always admired his ability to capture a precious moment, embellish an already stunning vista or even enhance an object of beauty further. It's wonderful that he has been able to pursue his passion so well.

DSK Motowheels Pvt. Ltd. Sachin Bhaiya | Marketing Head DSK Motowheels Pvt. Ltd.
Gaurav Thombre photography has lifted the creative output of Benelli bikes in a way that is both reflective of his craft and his understanding of the client. Adapting to Indian requirements, Gaurav has created a photography portfolio that presents Benelli in a classic, stylish yet rugged manner. His work is deeply inspired by the Italian legacy that Benelli has, a fact that is evident in all his shots. Gaurav’s use of light and shadow, colour depth and perspective clearly proves that he understands the need of the market, the client and most importantly, the customer.

Just Urbane Magazine Abhishek Kulkarni | Publisher Just Urbane Magazine
I have worked with a dozen photographers across the country being the publisher of a lifestyle magazine, but working with Gaurav is something really amazing. The professionalism that he gets on the sets is just class apart, and most importantly I haven't seen anyone other than Gaurav who would do the recce a day before every shoot with the reference images so that the artist he shoots on the main day doesn't waste much of his/her time. I have had celebrities asking for the availability of Gaurav's dates and my magazines gets a date only if he is available. His thought process during the shoot and the ability to experiment with new ideas is just incredible. A superbly brilliant and extremely professional photographer to work with.

I have worked with Gaurav on various projects in last 6-7 years. Every project we worked together brought a fresh perspective because of his passion for content creation and detailed understanding Gaurav has for his subject. The quality of the work has remained high consistently irrespective of the challenges. This in my case has lead to build up a bond of strong trust and assurance with Gaurav’s work. Highly recommended!

I had the good pleasure to work with Gaurav and his team in 2018 for a local shoot of the BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS. Gaurav with his vast experience in this industry, understood the brief and executed everything so perfectly. We faced harsh weather conditions, but still Gaurav was able to do justice to the objectives and bring out a fantastic end product. Above all, a down to earth individual and makes working together easy.

I've had the pleasure of working with Gaurav at the very start of my career with the Overdrive team. His clarity with framing, ability to make even the simplest of frames look good and discipline during shoots is what I admired the most. On the personal front as well, he's an amicable colleague to have. Till date I feel he's a valuable asset wherever he goes.

I got in touch with Gaurav through Google for a photoshoot and we got along very well. The shoot was for Tata Motors Limited, a photoshoot campaign of a car and a dog- Timba and Tiago. He was cooperative, full of enthusiasm, precise and he knew what we were looking for. Overall, it was a thrilling experience working with this great photographer. Hope to collaborate with him again in the future.
