Thank You for spending your time browsing through the pages and images I put it up here.
On many of the treks into the eastern and western ghats of India, photographing the landscapes of these pristine forests, I was also attracted to the hidden beauty of the small fauna that inhabit these. Starting to document these birds, butterflies, dragonflies, damselflies, insects and whole lot of wild flowers, I was drawn towards nature more intimately.
The urge to know more about these organisms, their interaction with each other and humans, and moreover, their ecological importance in our lives is what drives my passion !!
My photographs have appeared in leading newspapers, magazines, website publications, corporate calendar, bird books.
I think, photographs has the power to be the agent of change and I am using this medium to document and bring out the beauty of natural biodiversity to the common man. The urgency of conservation towards our natural heritage is the most important thing a photograph can do!
I am currently based out of Pune.
If you need photographic prints/frames of the photographs for your home or corporate offices, drop me an email.
