My interest in wildlife goes back to my playschool days. I remember having a collection of plastic replicas of wild animals and believe me, that collection used to be as dear as goProfileld to me. The fact that I grew up on stories of Jim Corbett helped a lot as well. I started wildlife photography around 12 years ago when I had a family outing to Ranthambhore national park. I had a Nikon N65 (a film camera) then and a basic 70-300mm lens. I did not make any half-decent images during that trip, but it definitely was a trigger for my journey as a wildlife photographer.
It has been more than a decade since that time and I am glad that I made that trip to Ranthambhore.
