Nilanjan is a fine art nature photographer from Calcutta, India. Even though he shoots in colour, but converting them to monochromes provides ultimate satisfaction. His experience of working in monochromes allows him to pre-visualize the frames in black and white. Most importantly Nilanjan feels that key to become a good nature photographer lies in understanding and respecting nature.
Nilanjan is a health care professional in his city. Though he has been shooting besides his profession, but has already won both national as well as international accolades for his photographs. His images have been awarded Image of the Year in Creative Photography forums in India and have also been winner in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the year contest for two consecutive years.
