A work in Progress

Ishan Shanavas - Photographer, Artist, Writer and Student of the Natural World

Hello! Welcome to my online home! 

I am from Bangalore and I study at Ashoka University, India.

My articles focus on nature, photography, society, culture and art. I also share insights from my favourite books, who’s topics are wide-ranging.

Passionate about wildlife and environmental conservation, I’m also interested in photography and other forms of art (See my portfolio). These artistic mediums help me show the world to others as I see it. I aim to distil these passions into weekly blog articles.

My fascination for wildlife got amplified when I joined Rishi Valley School. With plenty of wild creatures around, I learnt to identify various species of snakes and birds. Now, I want to dedicate my life to saving the environment.

My portfolio showcases my photography and art. By sharing my work and ideas, I wish to connect with others, challenge myself and become a polymath.

I am enthusiastic about outdoor sports—from trekking to scuba diving, from paragliding to surfing. Each has its thrill and is about living in the moment. When I was in school, I discovered a love for running; its steady rhythm incredibly therapeutic for me. Along with running, I also gravitated to long-distance cycling through the countryside.

As an avid traveler, I document my journeys through my writing and photography. 

I’m far from an expert in any of these fields. Rather, I gladly wear the label of an amateur. 

I believe there is always room for improvement. You’re welcome to provide suggestions so that the blog content can improve.
