About the Speaker

Mr Girish Gowda
Girish Gowda Profile Picture
Girish was born and brought up in Mandya in a successful middle-class family. He completed his schooling & graduation in his hometown and MBA in Mysore after which he moved to Silicon city – Bengaluru, in search of good opportunity. He started his corporate career as HR Professional in a multinational company & specialized in Talent Acquisition.

Having worked relentlessly for few years, Girish thought of relaxing a bit on weekends and started exploring different places. Viola! The keeda (worm) of travel and spending time with nature soon caught up and he got pulled towards the love of nature. These ongoing visits became intriguing by the day to know more about wildlife and recording the findings/fascinating wildlife stories. As such, it started to grow as a passion and bit by bit, knowing more and more about the little creatures around us, Girish firmed up his mind to turn his passion into a career in the field of nature and wildlife.

Girish’s close friend, Avinash, noticed the potential in Girish and gifted him a entry-level DSLR for recording his observations. There by, gave Girish, a new dimension to explore the world of photography in the year 2013.

During one of his regular visits to Hingaara Homestay at Agumbe, Girish happened to discuss his career aspirations with Shashank and then started his association as a naturalist at Hingaara. Soon enough the documentation work of the little wonders of Western Ghats began.

Girish has extensively studied (and is still studying) the wildlife behavior in Western Ghats (not just snakes but other critters importantly) and recorded some mind-boggling facts of these little wonders. Through his keen observation, untiring search for information and various discussions with specialists, he himself has become a compendium of knowledge about Western Ghats wildlife and its specialties.

His recent foray into helping other photographers achieve better macro photographs with the RADIANT DIFFUSER, has been a wonderful journey and opend many a pair of eyes to the nuances of effective lighting.
