This is a podcast about me - Shiv - a photographer, film-maker and traveler from Bangalore, India - telling stories about things I encounter, experience and enjoy ( and sometimes not ) during my journey through nature. Sometimes these are recorded during my travel and sometimes when am at the luxury of my studio with all fancy gear. Come along if you want to hear some stories during my Journey Through Nature.
In the first episode of the Season 2 of the Stories from Journey Through Nature, I have with me Sriharsha Ganjam from Landscape Wizards and Imagein from Artburt who wants to tell you a little adventurous story about him venturing out to shoot a very unique Astro event.
Its kind of a milestone episode and I had kept this story aside for last few weeks so that I can schedule it for the 10th episode. A story about how I had risked my life in an attempt to get a good photo of an elusive bird which I had gone to photograph in Ladakh in 2009. Listen to the story and you will realise when and how the tripod will come into the picture.
Today's story dates back to August of 2009 when myself and my friend Ganesh H Shankar ( www.naturelyrics.com ) had gone to Shivanasamudra for a weekend photo shoot and one wrong decision we took that day almost ended up being a fatal one and the lesson we learnt from that.
This episode of Stories from Journey Through Nature I deviate a bit from travelling and things around travel/nature photography but talk about a good 2yr stint I had with shooting event photography in the Electronic Dance Music scene in Bangalore/India. How I got into shooting EDM events, the type of experiences I had and why I eventually thought its good to move away from this field.
This episode of Stories from Journey Through Nature is not specifically about photography, but about experiences we get through when we are in trip especially when in International travel. Here I talk about the strange place we stayed and the struggle we had with getting veg food and most importantly the whole story of 3 of us losing our wallets during the trip to the ever so famous pick-pocketers of Italy.
