Amoghavarsha is a committed wildlife photographer who employs advanced technology with creativity and diligence as a medium for his message. He has traveled extensively across India documenting the country's awe-inspiring bio-diversity. His photographs have emotively captured the thick evergreens of Arunachal Pradesh, the barren landscapes of Ladakh and the lush tranquility of the Western Ghats in the south.
Amoghavarsha has collaborated with reputed media organizations to develop and deploy meaningful conservation messages and campaigns. He has worked with Felis Creations, a Bangalore based Wildlife Film Company, on their recent movie, "Secrets of the King Cobra”, that premiered on the National Geographic Channel.
He organizes photography workshops (and even expeditions) when possible, for he believes that education is the first step on the road to conservation. He associates closely with various NGOs, Research organizations and the Forest Departments to address conservation and raise public awareness about it. In the end Amoghavarsha considers himself to be a story teller of the natural world whose preferred medium is the image rather than the written word. Some of his other passions that compete with photography include the world of computers, astronomy and music.
A quick survey of Amoghavarsha’s equipment arsenal reveals the Nikon D80 to be his principal camera along with the following accessories.
Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR lens, Nikon 2X Teleconverter, Sigma 105mm f/2.8 Macro lens, Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens, Nikon 12-24mm f/4 lens, Nikon 18-55mm f/4-5.6 lens, Nikon SB900 Speedlight, Manfrotto tripod, IR remote and a Lowepro all-weather bag takes care of his equipment when out in heavy weather.
