Conserving nature and wildlife is the responsibility of every individual. Every person has a different approach to promote nature and wildlife. Today we tell you about Tapan Sheth, a wildlife photographer who is doing his best in conserving nature through his work. Hailing from Surendranagar, Gujarat, the photographer did not come from the creative background but his love for art put him in the creative space. He is a graduate in commerce from M.P Shah Commerce College after which he moved to Rajkot for better career opportunities. However, things changed after he bought his professional camera Canon EOS 550D.
Tapan started clicking pictures in his camera and found his love in photography. As a photographer, the biggest lesson he has learned is to be patient enough while clicking pictures. “Sometimes you just have to wait for the right time and the right moment to get the perfect shot. When you are clicking pictures of animals, they make certain movements. Wait for the right shot and capture it”, said Sheth. Besides this, the photographer loves to travel and explore different places. His portfolio holds strong data of the pictures captured of animals and nature. Moreover, his work has been appreciated and featured in many well-known media channels like National Geographic and Natgeo.
Over the years, he has clicked many pictures of Asiatic lions and other endangered species to let people know about wildlife conservation. Speaking about the same, he said, “People must realize the value of flora and fauna. Nature is God’s gift, but many people exploit it for their uses which is unfair. Through my work, I am trying my best to let people know about forest and wildlife conservation. Forest has become my second home now. Most of the time, I utilize my time in exploring mother nature and finding the rarest of the rare species.” Tapan Sheth has won various recognitions and we hope he continues doing this incredible work in the future as well.
