WHO AM I?

My name is Thomas Vijayan, I am basically an Architect hailing from Kerala, India also known as God’s Own Country, I was raised in Bangalore and now settled in Canada with my family. I have traveled all the seven continents for photography which is my passion but not my profession.

The big cats have always been my favorite subject for photography. To me there is nothing called "perfection" in any photography, every click to me is an experience, the more I click the more I learn something new. I give more importance to quality than clicking pictures in quantity. I love nature and I can never be bored by staying in nature for long, photography to me is a combination of my love for nature, travel, practice, patience, passion, care, friends and gear; more than anything else, it is a blessings of my creator to be able to witness the special moments in nature.

My love for photography has got me many awards including Wildlife Photographer of the Year (NHM) and also made me a Brand Ambassador of the most renowned brand Nikon from 2015 until now for Middle East & Africa.

With my little experience I can say, we can learn a lot, when we spend time with our Mother Nature. We will start seeing the importance of the life cycle of these tangible living things which belongs to this beautiful world. It can also help us become a better person, who would then understand the necessity of respecting nature and maintaining the eco-system. For this same realization I would like to use my passion for photography as a medium to bring this hidden wildlife beauty of nature to the common man so that they start loving and respecting the Mother Nature and stop exploiting it.

MY BACKGROUND

Nature & Wildlife Photography has been a major part of my life.I don't think there is something called "perfection" in any photography. Every click is an experience, the more the better. One can never get bored of nature if they are truly in love with it.

Photography for me is a combination of travel, practice, patience, passion, love, care, friends and gear; more than anything, the blessings of the creator is a must to be able to witness the special moments in nature.
