On Day 6, we depart from seeing various genres of wildlife pictures to reminisce on how to elevate them beyond Nature History images.
Taking us through this journey would be Sachin Rai, a Mumbaikar from Dombivli. A commerce student in the mid 90’s, he was drawn into the dotcom boom designing websites and later building his own design company.
Sachin caught the photograph bug incredibly early, it started in the year 2000 with a 7-day trip to Sundarbans Tiger Reserve, with Mr. Kedar Gore as a mentor. This experience helped him appreciate nature in its entirety instead of as a single animal. He attempts to portray the many moods of wildlife, from the tenderness expressed by a mother towards her child to the violent confrontations between beasts and strives to convey hope – both for wildlife and for humanity. Sachin’s images inspire curiosity about the natural world and help people reconnect with nature.
His photographs have been featured in national and international media, and his images have received several photography awards from Sanctuary Asia, DJMPC, Better Photography amongst others. Apart from birds and mammals, his love for frogs has helped re-discover a new species of frog in India called “Ramanella anamalaeinsis”.
