I was born and raised in a small village in the heart of western ghats, India. I am not sure when my interest in nature grew inside me. Even though I was close to nature I was not very fond of nature, or at least I thought so. But somewhere in the middle I hooked onto nature photography.
I am a nomad at heart, Doing the same thing for longer periods is not my cup of tea. I studied science, then commerce in college. Later joined a theatre school. Trainings in the theatre school have had a tremendous influence on me. I try to bring those lessons in my photography. Presenting nature in creative and artistic way is my main area of interest.
Currently I am living in a small place near to my native as an agriculturist.

"Born & brought up in Western Ghats of Karnataka. Worked as a software engineer for almost a decade, now quit my job to become a full time farmer. I'm an avid traveller and l was bitten by photography bug a decade ago. Initial years of my photography journey was spent in species hunt & was more in line with natural history point of view. Some of the works of CNPians brought me to this forum. From then on my photography journey took a different path. CNP school of thoughts has helped me to understand the art of photography. Exploring Creative & artistic aspect of photography is my focus at the moment.
A proud student of CNP!

Love for nature and the eye for its beauty runs in my blood as I was born and brought up in Hosahalli, a tiny village in Malnad (Western Ghats, Karnataka). My parents not only encouraged studies, but also recognised a budding photographer in me. They bought me a camera when I was in high school. My journey started with clicking every family event and trips, graduated to nature and then to Macro photography. As I went closer and closer to my to subjects, I was mermerised with the subtle beauty. "Like minded people, who think differently!!” was the thought that came into my mind when I came across CNP and I knew that my journey with CNP with an adventurous ride.
With support from spouse, friends, this journey has transformed into a good human being and I am hoping to achieve new heights.

Wandering in forests and enjoying the visuals offered by ‘Mother Nature’ has been a part of my life since childhood. Being involved with one of the local non-governmental organisation, taking part in various nature conservation & education oriented activities I found myself lucky enough to get ideal opportunities to observe nature from the closest. This apparently developed a deep feeling of friendship and kindness towards natural wonders of the wild. Stunned with the beauty and brilliance of wildlife, I picked up the camera to capture the splendours of wild in its raw form and enjoyed clicking different arrangements of nature’s most amazing elements with infinite possibilities in their own environment. Soon after a brief period, I learnt the values of creating an art piece & extracting imaginary beauty out of some simple elements of nature. Subsequently I started scrutinising some tiny yet powerful basics of nature in close proximity of my thoughts, which held potential of touching emotional strings of viewers’ heart and soul.
By mistake I became an engineer but now a photographer. I joined CNP during its early stages and since then it has been been silently instrumental in developing mature artist in me and my soul.

Born and raised in a village near Western Ghats, love and reverence for nature instilled in me at an early age. What started as a medium to record places visited, slowly transformed to pursuit of making meaningful images. I try to see and capture reflections of lessons taught by life in Nature.
