Photographic Areas of Focus





My name is Thomas Vijayan, I am basically an Architect hailing from Kerala, India also known as God’s Own Country, I was raised in Bangalore and now settled in Canada with my family. I have traveled all the seven continents for photography which is my passion but not my profession. The big cats have always been my favorite subject for photography. I have photographed the rarest of the rarest Amur Tiger, followed with Amur Leopard, Amur Leopard Cat and other species. To me there is nothing called "perfection" in any photography, every click to me is an experience, the more I click the more I feel I have learned something new. I give more importance to quality than quantity. My love for nature is immense; I never get bored by staying in nature for long. Photography to me is a combination of my love for nature, travel, practice, patience, passion, care, friends, and gear; more than anything else, it is a blessing of my creator to be able to witness the special moments in nature. Wildlife photography has got me over 1000+ awards; I am also the Brand Ambassador for one of the most renowned brands, Nikon from 2015 until now for Middle East & Africa. With my little experience, I can say, we can learn a lot when we spend time with our Mother Nature. We will start seeing the importance of the life cycle of these tangible living things which belong to this beautiful world. It can also help us become a better person, who would then understand the necessity of respecting nature and maintaining the ecosystem. For this same realization, I would like to use my passion, wildlife photography as a medium to bring these hidden treasures of nature to the common man so that they start liking the Mother Nature and understand the urgency of stop exploiting it.
