Sudhir Shivaram: A Real Life ‘Farhan’ [3 Idiots!]

Sudhir Shivaram

A lot of people are enthusiastic about photography. It is clearly one of the most emerging passions. Yet, it also remains widely misconstrued. Rarely, people do something serious about it. Sudhir is one of them.

Sudhir Shivaram is the one of the top three most influential persons in photography according to the Asian Photography awards since the last two years. A native of Bengaluru, the 45 year old photographer got involved in wildlife photography from the age of 21 while he was studying engineering. He is widely known for the live coverage of The Great Migration from Masaai Mara National Reserve (Southwestern Kenya) through his Facebook page.
