Mother nature offers a wide variety of landscape and terrain for people to explore and experience it. The offerings are so huge that it is impossible for an individual to visit all the known and unknown places in a lifetime. I try to capture these natural creations, be it landscape or the different animals inhabiting this planet.
Each photo captured has something unique to convey to its readers. It is my constant endeavor to showcase the beautiful creations around us. Photography to me is a means to get closer to nature, understand it and respect it. A walk in the jungle or a climb on a mountain lets me live the beautiful offering and capture it in my camera. An early morning walk in the serene city garden helps me relax and capture nature and its scenery. There are big debates and challenges shown in various media forms of human effect on nature and its delicate balance.
My photographic medium lets people see various life forms which need to be preserved for future generations to see for real and not just read in books. I am a software engineer by profession, traveler by choice and a photographer by passion. I capture animals, birds, landscape or flowers in my efforts to showcase nature in its raw form. The city influence can be seen in many of my photos once you view them. Travel to me is understanding the world and meeting new people where I learn something new all the time. Every person on this earth has something to teach to the other. I try to travel on weekends and extended vacations to explore different places and share it with the unknown world.
I can be seen with my photo backpack on all tours and travel escapades. Looking through the camera gives a very different perspective than viewing via naked eyes. The landscape, animals and even people no longer appear the same as they used to outside the sensor frame. There lies creativity of the photographer in capturing and portraying nature in a form which appeals to them. Feel free subscribe to this website.
