The 4 “P”s of Photography
On the last Day, Day 7, it is time to understand what drives the Wildlife Photographers to make those unforgetable frames frozen in time.
This presentation by Praveen Purohit is titled 4 “P”s of Photography, and by logic it should have been titled 6 “P”s of photography. Praveen is probably the most passionate wildlife photographer that we
have amongst us today. He was born in the concrete jungles of Mumbai. In his formative years, his yearly respite was the month-long vacations the family took to be back in their hometown in the hills of Uttarakhand. In 2011 he visited Amritsar with his point and shoot and that opened him up to possibilities of photography.
The “aha” light bulb moment came in 2012, when Praveen attended a 8 week course organized by DCP Expeditions, watching Caesar Sengupta, Yashpal Rathore, Amit Rane and others and learning from them, this in-turn led to a 2 year journey by joining DCP as a Team Lead on expeditions and photo walks.
Praveen then took the momentous decision to pack his bags and move to Uttarakhand and answer the call of the Himalayas. Back
home in Srinagar UK, Praveen studiously photographed the beauty of each of the spots showcasing its flora, fauna, culture and
His carefully crafted images of the Himalayan Monal, Yellow-throated Marten, Cheer Pheasant and the Himalayan Thar in their natural environment showcase his attention to detail. This love for photography has netted him awards, accolades and publications by the bushel, notable among them are from Nature’s Best Photography, Nature In Focus, Better Photography etc., and
proudly awarded and published in various media by the State of Uttarakhand and its Department of Tourism.
