“The joy of traveling and photographing in places whose existence most people do not know about is beyond compare.”

Capt Suresh Sharma at 52 years of age is an avid traveler and an experienced wildlife photographer who has traveled to diverse corners of the country. He served as a Captain in the Indian Air Force till the year 1990 before he decided to hang his boots and switch to photography.

His first experiment with photography goes back to his college days when film was still a costly affair. It was his stint with the Indian Peacekeeping Force in Sri Lanka that he went behind the camera again. Today, he is known for his expertise in recreating the natural environments of snakes so as to photograph the with artificial light. This stems from his love for snake as well as an effort to conserve their natural habitat. Naturally, his love for wildlife has resulted in several wildlife conservation programs across the country.

Suresh says, “In a bid to travel to the most remote regions of the country, I have a custom built caravan for photography. Equipped with everything a photographer might need, this vehicle is the perfect tool to experience the joy of the countryside with all the facilities of a modern world.” He also conducts photography tours and workshops that provides photographers, amateurs and professionals alike, the opportunity to learn and experience travel photography like never before.
