Nature is truth, truth Nature - that is all we know on earth, and all we need to know - Inspired from one of the Odes by John Keats.
The wilderness...seem to draw us to its benevolent chest... for wildlife we live, in nature we believe. With over three decades of experience we have gathered the sapience from the wild which is more than precious to us. The very thought of photographing wildlife makes us jubilant, in turn making our adrenaline run high. Owing to this unfathomable love for nature and wildlife we have gained expertise in this vertical.
Lusciously draped in emerald green, mother nature is nothing but a treasure chest, filled with mysteries and our job is to unfold these mysteries, understand them, gain knowledge from them and share our erudition with everyone. So calling ourselves just a bunch of photographers or wildlife enthusiasts do not do justice to what we do and how we get completely intertwined with the wild, to us we are more like 'NATURE WHISPERERS', wanting to make it evident that we just don't visit jungles and forests because we love to, but to understand all the facets of the wild. Its a part of our lives, not love, something more than just love.
Mother Nature has been very munificent to us and the surprises from the gargantuan storehouse of God's Green Earth never fail to amaze us and has given, is still giving us golden opportunities to quench our thirst of clicking wildlife, exploring more and more about the wild, cherishing the frozen moments for life and many reasons for GoingWild.
So to conclude, our major lookout is to unravel the mysteries of the wild and present it to the world; We believe in learning and sharing our knowledge with the world. Through our efforts we want to make a difference in both wildlife tourism and conservation by spreading awareness and also bringing the wild one step closer to its lovers!
The world is our platform, the wilderness is our domain; whether we perform well or not, that you will have to decide only by spending time with GoingWild.
A loveless life is futile and what could be more satisfying than loving and being loved by nature? Well, this is for you to decide but he always knew that he belonged with nature. At a very tender age he clearly realised that he is increasingly attracted to nature. The constant longing to get away from the city humdrum guided managing partner, Dibyendu to take up birding and wildlife photography as his profession, working in an IT company could never satisfy the hunger of his soul and mind. A very young Dibyendu took interest in animal skull craft for it used to be his favourite pastime, he read his mother’s zoology books which made his interest in animals grow stronger . His love for wildlife groomed him to grow up into a wildlife enthusiast, he is now an avid traveler and has been to many important birding areas in the Himalayas, honing his skills as a naturalist, birder and a wildlife photographer.
With a huge bird list (which is ever increasing) till date he is currently one of the eminent bird watchers in India. Many of his works have been published in domestic and international publishings, books and newspapers.
Breathing life into the frozen moments of nature is what Soumyajit has been doing through his lenses for the last two decades. Trained as an architect, framing comes to him automatically and composition is his high plus point. Given his early schooling in art & painting, the basic concepts of composition and light always titillated his young brain. Being a self taught he strongly believes in the inherent sense of beauty which at all times, is the best guide than the bookish rules of photography. And he got ample opportunities to cross check his concepts with visiting stalwarts of this field. He valued the criticism of professionals as well as laymen and shaped his creativity accordingly. His photographs strike the very chord in the hearts of his audience urging them to react to the strong messages of nature conservation.
Soumyajit had been long drawn by the mystic world of animals and their natural habitat, the jungle. Coupled with this love for nature and unending patience he makes the right individual to practice wildlife photography. The photographs clicked by him play an integral part in altering the monstrosity of the creatures and highlighting their vulnerability.
Soumyajit is currently whetting his tiger tracking skills especially in the Indian Sunderban, exploring the enigmatic mangroves in a whole new light and bringing the wildlife lovers one step closer to the exotic species of Indian Sunderban not only this but also he shares his knowledge with the clients to ensure that they understand better and the awareness is propagated properly. Having said this, it is needless to mention that not only the tigers of Sunderban, Soumyajit’s erudition about other species of the land of Sundari trees is no doubt remarkable for he has acquired such extensive understanding by spending substantial amount of time in the mysterious mangroves, thus playing a key role in rebuilding the forests and providing protection to its inhabitants.
“Love looks not with the eyes, But with the mind; And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”
His love for tigers is unfathomable. The books of Sir Jim Corbett and of course the wanderlust always made him yearn to be at one with nature, the very thought of observing and photographing the majestic Bengal tigers “filled up his senses like a storm in the desert”, the burning eyes of the majestic beast have lured him to leave his job as an IT professional and made him delve deep into the tangled heart of the forests and breath in the redolence of the jungles. Managing partner, Tamanud Mitra developed a strong understanding of nature and its components, first from the books of Sir Jim Corbett and then by absorbing the jungle lore in the Indian jungles over a considerable period of time, his perseverance and strong determination to walk on the path of his long cherished dream have led him into being an excellent, self-taught tiger tracker and a good enough photographer.
