The nature incites you to pick up a camera and capture the beauty. It exquisitely mesmerizes you so that you can mesmerize those who haven’t witnessed it. This is the inspiration of Baiju Patil as he quotes from the legend Gerardo Suter, “I didn’t choose photography, but photography chose me.” His experiments with Wildlife and Nature Photography have earned him scores of laurels at a young age and his consistent dedication will definitely find new avenues. He has worked on various aspects of Photography and mastered the art.
Baiju is a legend while relating to wildlife, conservation of biodiversity and natures manifestations of various forms of wildlife. He belongs essentially to a tribe which strives passionately to lead a different life. From almost three decades he has spent his time & energy in exploring the mysteries of forest, captivating ambience of the forests and the company of ferocious animals and soft singing birds. It is a tribute to his outstanding ability to bring out the best in the wildlife using his camera. As a photographer his entire application has been towards sharpening the effects on all objects which are the focus of the photography.
Baiju probably is the only photographer with multidimensional proficiency in Industrial Photography, Product Photography, Portrait Photography, but Nature Photography remains his passion. One salutes his conviction that sustained a campaign through photographs for the protection of wildlife which would in turn ensure protection of environment and sustainable use of natural resources. He therefore, becomes a champion of the cause for making our country safe and healthy for future generations.
