About

I started my career as an entrepreneur, having found my first business straight after university at the age of 23. In my non photography days i have designed and developed business automation software, run an outsourcing consulting firm and even advised on Online Reputation Management. The last 5 years before i turned into a full time wildlife photographer, i was trading equity and derivatives and due to some wise investments decisions, got the opportunity to pursue my true passion. 

I consider myself very fortunate that today i can spend all my time photographing and spending time with wild animals. Even though i have lived in a large city all my life, i was introduced to the wild and its wildlife at a very young age. In the early 80's my uncle would take me to Bandhavgarh National Park to try and catch a glimpse of the Royal Bengal Tiger. It was not until much later that i took on wildlife photography as a hobby and over the years turned it into an obsession. 

While i love and respect all wildlife, Tigers and their wellbeing seems to be closest to my heart. I maintain a strong ethic while photographing animals in the wild, respecting their space and placing their welfare above all. 

My Work
With my work i aim to create an emotional connect between the viewer and the animal. I try and capture wild animals in their simplest form and focus a great deal on portraits of wild animals especially big cats. Most often than not i consider color to be a distraction so i prefer to process images as Black & Whites or monotones. 

Favourite Locations
My favourite photography locations would depend on what i am photographing. But if i was to just name one it would have to be Ranthambhore National Park. I have been visiting Ranthambhore for over 20 years and for good reason. The tigers are beautiful and bold, making them a delight to photograph. The park is dotted with ancient ruins giving the place so much character. This place is truly magical.
