At Light and Life Academy, we teach various specialized fields of photography. It’s fascinating to see how each of our students forge their own paths with this knowledge and progress in their careers. In our series Alumni Connect, we look back at some of these stories.
This story is about Pradeep Ravi, a Chennai-based wildlife photographer and LLA Batch 2012-13 alumnus.
Bitten by the wildlife bug
The seeds of Pradeep’s wildlife obsession were sown at a very young age. He grew very fond of animals even as a child. The transition from being an animal lover to photographing them happened organically when he took up the camera. The story goes that while doing his Professional Photography course in LLA, Ooty, no matter what type of assignment, Pradeep would find a way to interpret it using wildlife. He says he must have done no less than 400 safaris in Bandipur during that time.
