When he is not juggling files, he is out in the wild. Meet Vivek Singh, district food marketing officer in the food and civil supplies department of UP, a self-taught wildlife photographer, who shoots the wild, but with his camera.
A chance visit to the wildlife park at the insistence of his daughter during the Easter holidays sparked off a mission of a lifetime for him. In those days when internet was not the obvious source of primary information, one of his daughter's friends visited Bandhavgarh national park and her insistence for a similar trip landed him in tigers own country. The mesmerizing encounter with the majestic tigers of the park propelled him to think of bringing the magic of wild and the message of conservation to the larger audience. Photography was the obvious choice to bring this magic home, says Vivek. A nature lover to the core, he has been concerned with issues of nature and conservation from an early age. He was the editor of the school magazine on environmental issues and instrumental in forming a group of nature lovers for conservation cause in the college.
Meeting ace Nat Geo Photographer Kalyan Varma helped Vivek crystallize the vision and he took to wildlife photography seriously four years back, to bring forth the beauty of the wild and the message of conservation through his lens. He uses canon 7D Mk 2 camera and canon 100-400 remains his favorite lens for shooting wildlife though occasionally he also uses 70-200 and 300 mm prime lens. Travelling extensively Vivek has covered almost all the well-known national parks of India with Bandhavgarh in MP and Ranthambhore in Rajasthan being his favorite.
His chance transfer to Varanasi brought him closer to the magic of street photography as he started documenting the life & times of the most ancient city on earth but wildlife photography remains his primary passion.
This event offers a kaleidoscopic view of his work and an opportunity for us to see the world through his view finder.
