Baiju Patil : Introduction & award winning by them

City based photo-artist Vinod Patil alias Baiju bagged the prestigious Sanctuary RBS Wildlife Award 2009 in the individual category. Baiju received the award at a programme held in Mumbai. He had sent five pictures for the contest out of which three were selected. His picture of egrets resting on the trees in the night was critically appreciated. "The picture is special because it was taken at night near a waterbody in Aurangabad district. I used the low-shutter speed technique to capture the birds sleeping," said Baiju. Other pictures that brought him fame include wolves in the wilderness (taken in Nanaj in Solapur district) and the tigress Badimaa' plying with her cubs in the dense forests of Pench National Park in Madhya Pradesh.

Baiju has been in the field of photography for the last 11 years and has organised photo exhibitions of birds and animal shot by him travelling to different parts of the country. He is a recipient of a number of state, national and international awards.

Baiju Patil Introduction his own words :  
 
Wildlife photography is my hobby. I am in wildlife photography since 10-12 years for my pleasure and i have visited almost all national parks in India. The variety, beauty, grandeur and of course the 'action' in national parks and forests have given me some of the most beautiful and cherishing moments of my life. It gives me immense pleasure to be in a jungle. I always try my level best to improve upon myself. My aim is to click at the 'best and unique' though, I never did it for any kind of competition. Being a painter, it helps me a lot when it comes to the selection of color combination, background and light effects. Wildlife Photography is a very tough and sometimes even risky job. I become a part of the jungle whenever i am there. I enjoy wildlife photography so much that, it does not matter even if i have to climb a tree, walk in muddy waters and bushes or wait for hours together in adverse situations of cold or rain for a good shot.

My book named WILDSCAPE has been launched recently at Raj Bhavan in Mumbai by the hands of Honorable Governor of Maharashtra Dr. K. Shankarnarayan and Business Tycoon Mukesh Ambani, published by M.D. of prestigious printing media house Lokmat Mr. Vijay Darda.  I have been awarded the RBS - Sanctuary award for the Best Wildlife Photographer - 2010 1st prize winner BAIJU PATIL in the Wildlife Photographer Awards category of the Sanctuary-RBS Wildlife

I feel very proud that I could contribute my mite, however small it may be, for Indian wildlife. I present Indian wildlife through my 'eyes' before all you nature lovers. Your remarks are highly valued as, they will encourage me to deliver even better.... Baiju
