Shooting themed Photo Stories

Brahminy Kite and boat. Shot in Allapuzha, Kerala, India.

Goal

To go and take photographs with a certain theme/vision in mind.

Current Themes

Fine-Art Wildlife Photography

David Yarrow is one of the world’s most renowned Fine -Art Wildlife photographers. He shoots in a distinctive, b&W, high contrast style, giving his subject a unique look.

His work has most influenced my photography. I try to emulate his style, endeavouring to set a new vision for wildlife photography.

Animals in their Habitat

Nowadays, wildlife photography has become very generic. Many photographers use large telephoto lenses, with which they separate the animal from its surroundings.

I strive to do the opposite. I try to photograph the animal with its habitat, to provide the viewer with some context.

As a street photographer, I want to photograph people as they go about their daily professions. There is a silent diligence about people when they are working, and I strive ti capture that in my images.
