SHIVA KUMAR

bio

I am K Shiva Kumar a Master's Degree holder in Journalism & Mass Communication at Central University of Odisha, Koraput, and professional wildlife photographer from Hyderabad, India. I aim to use innovation and technology to achieve fresh perspectives in my work & through World Photography Lovers.

I am passionate about wildlife conservation. Through my work, I hope to inspire greater appreciation for the wildlife that shares our planet and encourages conservation action.

My love of wildlife started from a young age, learning to respect and care for wildlife was instilled into me. From those early days, I spent so much time being at one with nature, close to and watching, hidden from view on the off chance I would see a certain animal. This skill is one of many I use within my own wildlife photography today derived from those early encounters with Nature. This loses yourself to nature approach enables me to get close enough to capture the animal’s beauty and behavior which both feature strongly in my style of photography, showing a wild animal within their natural habitat being the foundation to my work today through the images I see then frame through my camera’s viewfinder.

Where my creative and emotional attachment to nature is at the very heart of each image, creating a unique and artistic reflection of my time in the field. It is my intention to use these reflections of the natural world to bring people’s awareness of what beautiful wildlife we have on our doorstep and all around us and the importance of conservation and the need to preserve our national heritage.
