ABOUT

I belong to a small village of Coochbehar, West Bengal, India. I am a masters in Environmental Science. From my childhood, nature has always inspired me. The life and death of a grasshopper, the flashing green hue of a bee-eater, the sound of smashing dry leaves on a forest floor in spring always kept me enthralled.
So, in photography, I had no other option except to choose nature photography. In 2008 I started nature photography. 
My pictures are published in various national and international magazines like Sanctuary Asia & BBC Wildlife Magazine, and I have received many national and international awards in wildlife photography competitions. I am the only Indian wildlife photographer who has won the "Wildlife Photographer of the year" consecutively two times. This award is popularly known as the "Oscar of wildlife photography". In 2019, I was the winner in the "Portrait" category and in 2020 I won the "Wildlife portfolio" category.
I want to spread awareness through my photography and work.
