Yashpal Rathore : Naturalist & Photography Mentor : Owner: JMD Images & Rathore Nature Photography
1. How you started your photography
My interest in Nature & wildlife dates from Childhood. I was regular in conservation related activity for college days whether its wildlife census or other activities. I did Naturalist certification course conducted by Jungle lodges & Resorts Karnataka, also did Certified Volunteer course conducted by Karnataka Forest Department & Eco tourism board. Photography came late, but naturally into my life. Once I got into nature photography, it was easy for me to move into it, as my engineering background & being Naturalist help me.
2. What is the role of new technology and medium in photography?
In recent times technology is changing very fast, also in the field of photography. Today everyone is a photographer, those who own smartphones or stand-alone camera. In photography advancement of technology has made many things possible which was not possible before. Today camera’s high ISO performance makes shooting possible at late evening time, earlier we used to pack up camera bags those times. In-camera Multiple exposure, HDR, etc. creates opportunities to make new images.
3. Anything specific that you want to share with people.
I see many new photographers devote too much time in discussion over various brands of camera or technical aspects of it. Every new model with few additional Megapixel or extra fps draws more attention. But Advancement of technology can’t replace knowledge of your genre of photography. You can be successful wedding photographer only if you know detail customs of wedding you are planning to shoot. You can’t be better fashion photographer if you don’t know the latest trends in fashion. Similar we can be better nature photographers if we have deep knowledge about our subjects of interest, because it’s all about anticipating moment well in advance. So to be better nature photographer we need to be a naturalist first, otherwise instead of doing good to nature by your photography, you will end up harming nature because of our ignorance.
4. What gives you motivation to go out and click despite having busy schedules.
My desire to capture nature in new or different perspectives or derives me to go out in wilderness again & again. I had developed remote controlled buggy & developed dslr camera trap systems to capture wildlife in innovative ways. I try to manage balance between my work, my family and my passion, which is very important.

The joy derived out of providing orientation on these subjects to young people encouraged him to educate himself more in this field.

About Red Fort
The Red sandstone walls of the massive Red Fort (Lal Qila) rise 33-m above the clamour of Old Delhi as a reminder of the magnificent power and pomp of the Mughal emperors. The walls, built in 1638, were designed to keep out invaders, now they mainly keep out the noise and confusion of the city.
The main gate, Lahore Gate, is one of the emotional and symbolic focal points of the modern Indian nation and attracts a major crowd on each Independence Day.
The vaulted arcade of Chatta Chowk, a bazaar selling tourist trinkets, leads into the huge fort compound. Inside is a veritable treasure trove of buildings, including the Drum House, the Hall of Public Audiences, the white marble Hall of Private Audiences, the Pearl Mosque, Royal Bathsand Palace of Color.
