| A research fellow with the BNHS, he took to wildlife photography just where he should have - in the wild, at the Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur, India. There, in the company of professional wildlife photographers, he chose a better way to connect with nature. Soon he gave up his job and worked as a freelance lecturer to finance his passion.
Wildlife photography has taken him from the cold deserts of Ladakh to the blue lagoons of Lakshadweep; from the hot deserts of Rajasthan to the tropical wet evergreen forests of Assam. In the course of his travels he has captured many aspects of wildlife, but in his extensive collection (exceeding 5000 images) we see a bias towards birds. Sometime in the near future, he aims to develop an elaborate pictorial library of birds of India featuring their entire life cycle.
