I love nature and had passion for clicking pictures since my school days, but I got a camera for myself only in 1996 about six years after I joined Government Service. I started clicking pictures wherever I went, especially during my annual trekking trips to Himalayas and some smaller treks within the State. I was introduced to YPS and Wildlife Photography by my friend and colleague H.V.Praveen Kumar in the year 2001. I did few trips to wild with him and also got acceptance for my pictures at YPS National Salon in 2001. However, due to personal reasons could not continue with wildlife photography, but kept clicking pictures and was never away from my passion. I came back to wildlife photography in December 2012 after almost 11 years with a new lens. After 3 years into wildlife and birding photography, I am happy that my pictures started getting accepted in National and International Salons and also received few awards as well. Wildlife and Birding takes me closer to nature and my love for nature gets deeper, so come what may I will not stop capturing nature in my pictures.
