Dhaval Sunil Dhairyawan (19 April 1979 - 22 March 2012[1]) was a lifestyle and automotive photographer from India. He was noted for his Photojournalism for The Times Journal of Photography,[2] TopGear India Magazine, The Times of India[3] and Lonely Planet Magazine.[4][5][6][7][8] He died in March 22, 2012 due to a prolonged illness.

Piramal Art Gallery, Mumbai hosted a photo exhibition in his memory under the name, The Dhaval Dhairyawan Retrospective.[9]

Due to his passion for automobiles, he changed the Indian outlook for automotive photography. He did several photo shoots for Top Gear Magazine[10] which were never seen in an Indian car magazine before.[11][12]
