Sandesh Kadur’s first interaction with wildlife photography happened at a relatively young age, when his father gifted him an SLR and a number of Nation Geographic films for his birthday. He spent most of his early life extensively studying and researching the biodiversity in India, Mexico and South America and even has a degree in wildlife photography from the University of Texas. As a professional wildlife photographer, he has immense expertise in India, especially the Western Ghats and the Himalayas.
His work, whether still or video, is a means to inspire wildlife conservation, which is something he is deeply passionate about. His impressive repertoire has been showcased in various books and magazines all over the world, while his documentaries have been aired on channels such as BBC and Discovery. He has also racked up a number of awards over the years, including the CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year as well as being nominated twice for a Green Oscar.
