Everyone is talking about tiger population bouncing back and celebrating and that’s all good. We had a challenge and with a great deal of effort the tiger population is on the up again. But with this we now face a new challenge. An even greater challenge. Where do the tigers go, our forest cover is not increasing so what happens now. Are the forest corridors safe enough for tigers to migrate to new forests or will it bring them into conflict with humans and we all know who wins that fight. More on this stuff shortly

Japan sucks for not banning ivory. Vietnam too. Do you agree?  I call this image legs and it was made in South Africa in the winter of 2018

One of the almost beautiful lions I have had the privilege of photographing. With that thought I think watching these animals in the wild is a privilege itself, something future generations might not get a chance to do if we don’t start respecting nature. My respect goes to all those who spend their lives trying to protect wildlife all over the world

That’s one long neck. I can tell you facts about the Giraffe but you can easily find it online. But what I will say is that it’s one beautiful animal and so much fun to watch. God’s design at its best

A bee eater somewhere in rural Romania. A magical country that has so much to offer. Great food, friendly people, beautiful wildlife and some stunning landscapes. I head back to this beautiful land to explore some opportunities at photographing and filming at the Danube delta

This was perhaps the closest I have been to lions making a kill. The lion and the lioness together pounced on the prey bringing it down in a matter of seconds. Not only did I good some good images I had the time to make a few videos. At this point I would like to add a disclaimer that I am very new to videos. Do let me know what you think about the video? Would you like to see more videos and back of the scenes from my travels

An African lion basking in the golden morning light in South Africa. It took a lot of waiting before this lion raised his head for just a few seconds before going back to sleep. Wildlife photography can be boring and frustrating and one can go for trips and not return with even one useable image, and I guess that’s ok. It’s more failure than success. But after all the waiting when you have a moment with a wild animal even if it only lasts a few seconds it’s all worth it

It was a long time ago that I watched a movie starring Anthony Hopkins called THE EDGE. It was about a bunch of people getting lost in the woods while a bear was hunting them down one by one. While this does not happen in the real world it did get me fascinated about bears. Until now I have not really had the opportunity to get the bear images I have visualised but I did get some that just made the cut. In this image I get up close and personal with a European brown bear in the forests of Transylvania (Romani)

Hamir, a young male tiger I have tracked and photographed for about three years was involved in an incident just a few days ago when he accidentally stumbled upon a goat herder and killed him. It’s sad for the human who lost his life. But is it really this tigers fault. The tiger population in India is on the rise. This coupled with the fact that our forests are shrinking and inhabitation of forest corridors are on the rise, what will happen to these young tigers who need space. I will not be surprised if more such incidents of human tiger conflict happen at Ranthambhore or other tiger reserves in India. This is the new challenge. How do we accommodate our growing tiger population

When I started learning photography a long time ago I would think I am competing with other wildlife photographers but as I matured I realised that I was only competing with myself. I make an image and then  go back and try making a better version of that image. The process is never ending and can be frustrating at times but it guarantees continued improvement. Take these images for example. I wanted to capture movement and I did, I exposed the image as per my liking, got the right angle etc but after looking at them for hours I realised that I am not happy with the background. No matter how much I like these images I can never add them to my portfolio. This just means that I got to head back to Japan soon and try to make a better version of this image

Happy world lion day. If this lion could speak, do you think she would be happy with what is happening to her kind. Lion population is going down, there is poaching, revenge killings, reduction in prey base etc

A baby elephant I had stumbled upon at Mala Mala private game reserve in South Africa. He tried to act all grown up and charge at my vehicle to scare us off but he did not have the desired effect on us. We just found it so funny. This is what we have to fight for. Without us these guys stand no chance

One from the archives but still happens to be one of my favourite artwork. Being in such close proximity to these two asiatic lions was a humbling experience. Having said that these are wild animals and should never be approached without having an experienced team guiding you. More importantly it can stress and disturb animals so it’s best to keep a safe distance and let the animals approach you. I get asked many times how I manage to get within feet of these big cats and I think the trick is a simple one. When I encounter a big cat in the wild, I maintain a safe distance and stay still merging with the habitat. The animals don’t feel threatened and because they are curious they will come check you out and that’s when I get these really close up shots

Another simple portrait of a big cat photographed at Gir NP. For those who don’t know Gir is the last place on earth to find wild Asiatic Lions. Once on the brink of extinction they now thrive in this remote part of the country. In fact there are too many of them. This population increase has raised a new challenge. How do we increase forest cover and create safe corridors for lions and tigers to move into new territories. The fight for their survival will go on and should go on, after all they have as much right over this planet as we humans do

Some of the hardest images to make in my opinion but the most rewarding ones too. I think I took about a hundred shots before I got it just the way I wanted it. To be honest I would have liked to be a tad bit lower to the ground but I was on a boat and that was not an option
