3. P S Vaibhav
Impassioned for capturing life’s most precious sights and making them cherished memories, he has always been a photography enthusiast. But it wasn’t until he picked up his camera to capture the lives of some furry friends that made him realize that his true passion was – exploring the wilderness! In fact, wildlife photography has grown to become such an important aspect of who he is today.
He has had amazing opportunities to explore several if not most, destinations of the vast subcontinent. And needless to mention the wonderful experiences he had and the privilege of sharing these with his fellow travelers and photographers.
One such transforming expedition was his recent visit to Spiti Valley. Having traveled mostly in the tropical and sub-tropical regions of the country, this was his first voyage to the snow-clad terrains of the Himalayas. At temperatures as low as -20°C and on rough terrains that render several parts of the Valley inaccessible, getting to the viewpoint from the campsite was in itself a rodeo. The nearly-a-week-long expedition certainly tested grit both physically and mentally.
The views and the sightings he got to capture certainly made up for the harsh weather conditions he endured! Watching a mother snow leopard and her two cubs enjoy the steep mountainous slopes.

After completing his degree, Shahir Y Bajowala decided to start his own business as a proprietor. This decision allowed him to apply his engineering skills in practical ways and made him work on projects that were both challenging and fulfilling.

Finally, his other passion is collecting ancient coins and stamps. This hobby made him learn about history from around the world while also appreciating the beauty of these artifacts.
Overall, these diverse interests have shaped who he is today – someone who is curious about how things work but also passionate about creativity and history.
5. Tanuja Uchil
Tanuja Uchil is a freelance photographer from Mumbai/India.
She loves to capture moments in a frame and make timeless memories.
According to her, photography is a vast canvas, as different aspects of life, like nature, landscapes, and fashion, can be immortalized through photography. Her forte is Portraits, corporate profiles, kids’ photoshoots, products, food, events, landscapes, nature, and so on.
Portraits are her favorite. She feels every person is blessed with unique features which are amazing to capture and frame. There is so much diversity in each look, angle, and mood. Doing families and kids portraits gives her a very Happy and candid vibe. When it’s a corporate shoot, it’s all serious and business. Though it need not be, as she keeps telling her clients that it’s not a driver’s license or a passport photo and that standing against a white background is not always an effective corporate profile.
Your sharpest office wear and subtle makeup, combined with the right camera angle, lighting, and gentle head movements, can make all the difference in a corporate profile. Landscapes are interesting too, and capturing the beauty of nature is an enthralling experience always.
One vertical she added to her business is glassless and illuminated framing of portraits, landscapes, and artwork, and this has been hugely appreciated by many of her clients. To bring joy with every photo is her all-time motto.
