Adesh Shivkar  

My initiation as a birder and bird photographer did not have a good start. As a child, and with a lack of any awareness, I used to chase birds with a catapult in hand with an urge to possess them. But after joining my college nature club, I realized the beauty of the avian world and also the void in wildlife awareness. Since then I have been addicted to birdwatching and nature awareness for almost 20 years. This passion took me to various places in India and the urge to possess birds induced me to capture them in the form of images. Though I photograph birds, I consider myself a birder rather than a photographer. Recently I have left my Pharma marketing job of 13 years to start my own eco-tourism venture through which I intend to sensitize more people towards appreciating, respecting and conserving nature.
