Jayanth Sharma, Toehold
Jayanth took up serious photography in 2004, and co-founded Toehold in 2010 and especially since then, has been a prolific producer of consistently stunning imagery — the kind that is planned in a studio and executed outdoors. Effortlessly combining natural history and fine-art elements, Jayanth brings back rarely seen perspectives from the little-visited domains and far corners of the natural world.
His unique expertise in photographing in a truly eclectic range of wilderness areas – from Southeast Asia to Canada, Brazil to Norway and East Africa to eastern Russia, is supplemented by his immense experience in the Indian Subcontinent. Having worked in the mighty Himalayas, the unexplored Northeast, the secretive South and the tiger havens of Central India, Jayanth is a homegrown photographer gone totally global.
Participants of his Photo Tours find in him not only an acutely brilliant mentor but also a sparkling inspiration to conceive and execute images they had hitherto probably never imagined.
