Revolutionary South Asian Women

Namaste! My name is Priyanca Rao, and I am a New York City portrait photographer.

As a creative person I am constantly inspired by other women from my South Asian background.

This year, I am taking sometime out of my commercial projects to create something that is close to my heart. We have so many inspirational women in our South Asian tribe, and we don’t need to look any further. I am trying to build a body of work that showcases brown women who have a unique story to share. Stories that go against the grain, are who are not afraid to be themselves. I hope this project can be showcased in the form of a gallery show in the future, plus an epic ‘special edition magazine ‘Revolutionary South Asian Women’ magazine in print, with a written story accompanying the portraits. But most of all I hope these portraits inspire other South Asian Women to be themselves.

“I want to capture some powerful portraits of you and share your story with the world”.

The portrait shoot will include:

  • Pre-photoshoot concept and planning
  • Wardrobe Styling
  • 1 hour photoshoot in NYC at our midtown studio
  • In-person image selection of one complimentary photo 
  • Additional portraits starting at $250

Not included: Hair and Makeup artistry available for $450

There is a written component to this project, where I will send a questionnaire to collect more information about your unique story.

Priyanca took stunning photos of us even under rushed circumstances with lighting that was not her own. We were blown away. Her kindness, attention to detail, and beautiful portraits have made us huge fans, and we can’t wait to work with her again.
