Institutes that offer wildlife photography courses in India

by Kaushik Bhar

Hi! My name is Kaushik Bhar. I am in INDIA and I want to learn wildlife photography. I want to learn photography under u. How can I go there? I know photoshop. Right now I'm doing a job. Please help me. Do u name some of the institute where I can do a course in wildlife photography course. Please help me. I need your help. I saw the great website.

Thank you so much!!!


Hi Kaushik,

for me it seems that wildlife photography is one of the hottest areas of photography (at least in these days) becuase I receive a lot of emails regarding wildlife. And the second trend I identified is that a lot of my visitors are looking for an education in India!

I am totally honest and I am currently more involved in photography schools and courses in Europe, the United States and Canada. I just have one serious article on my website which is related to the Asia-Pacific area. That's the Photography School Asia in Bangkok.

I first need to identify the educational institutes in the Asia-Pacific area (especially India). I really want to help people interested in professional photography in this area. Indeed, in the long run I want to cover all photography institutes around the world.

I am really sorry that I have no specific information about institutes in India. There's one website with a selection of Art Colleges in India. Please note that in Europe and the USA you can study photography at "Art Schols" (photography art schools) - they see Photography as an art (and I think that's true).

Have a look at this site about education in India.

Maybe there's an institution in your area.
I personally just can recommend to first get the right education. Yes, it can be quite expensive during this learning-curve, but it will help you later when you are ready to work and earn money. Learn the basics and get your photography degree (yes, it's a piece of paper but that paper can be worth a lot).

Sorry again that I can't be more specific with photography institutes in India. I will expand this area onto my website soon.

Greetings to India!!

All the best,

Thank you for responding
by: Kaushik

Hi Tobias,
First of all I want to thank you for responding to my mail. Tobias I want to say that, right now it is impossible for me to get an admission in the photography institute abroad. If I am somehow be able to learn a photography course from India, will you help me to get a job abroad? How is it possible to go abroad? I want to learn under you for gaining knowledge and experience in photography. Please help me.
Thanks, Kaushik


Hi Kaushik,

you are welcome - and sorry for my late answer...

I just can ecourage everyone to take a real education in photography (but it's a lot of work and you have to be ultra motivated in my opinion).

Unfortunately, I am not able to help individuals to get specific courses, teach photography etc. It would be a treadmill - simply spoken.

I receive a lot of inquiries each and every day from the photography website. I really try to answer every one, but it's simply not possible (at least if you are doing everything yourself). Doing offline work with institutions, jobs etc. would be to much for me. I hope you understand this.

Nevertheless, I wish you all the best for your photography career!
Best regards,

Online Photography Degree
by: Dinesh Alluri

Hi, this is Dinesh! I am a software engineer by profession. I would like to take photography as a career in the next few years.

As of now I can't go with regular studies, so please let me know of any good and affordable institutes that offer online education.

Please let me know a best course and also best institute that matches my requirements, where the course should help me in moving to masters too..

Two resources for photography colleges in India
by: Tobias

Hi Dinesh,

I am still looking for an excellent online photography course in India (and I really mean 100% online). As of today I haven't found one.

Just as a tip - here are two great places to start with:

1. Light & Life Academy - this is a full-time (one-year) PG diploma in professional photography. You will also have the chance to customize your studies in a specific area like portrait photography, architecture and interiors, photojournalism and so on.

What's also a big plus for this diploma is the fact that your teacher really knows what he's talking about ... he's one of the best advertising photographers in India!

2. WebIndia - They have a couple of great links to photography institutes in India.


As for the cost: That really depends!

If others know of an online photography course in India - please comment here! Thanks!

All the best,

Wildlife photography besides a normal job
by: varun

Hello, I am a under graduate student of mechanical engineering in India, I am about to do my MS,phd in aerospace sciences, but a I am very much fascinated to wildlife biology and wildlife photography. Can I do a phd in those areas after my PhD in astronomy because as a profession I wanna become astrophysicist precisely and as a hobby I wanna be a wildlife photographer. Please solve my query at this field, thank you so much. Varun

Everything is possible
by: Tobias

Hi Varun,

personally speaking, I always like the idea to do a "normal job" and study part time. That way you will have the money needed to fund your education and if anything goes wrong you still have your normal job.

So, it's definitely possible to become a wildlife photographer besides your aerospace job. Everything is possible :-)

All the best,

Two new photography institutes in India
by: Tobias

Hi Kavitha,

for me it seems that you really have a passion for photography and wildlife. That's fantastic and I can feel it between the lines you wrote.

First of all, congratulations on your finished Master of Science degree! I know from personal experience how hard it is to get this piece of paper :-)

What I do not really understand is this: Do you discovered your passion for photography during your studies in informatin technology? If so, I can understand that you want to start all over.

As for the student loans: You should know that better than I do. How did you received the loans for your M.Sc. studies? I would try the same for your new degree program.

The educational institutes in Tamilnadu are out of my expertise. Actually, I've never heard of it - but as you can image, there are meanwhile thousands of art schools, colleges and universities around the globe.

You might want to check out my articles on these two institutes in India:

1. Shari Academy of Professional Photography

2. Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art

I am always happy to receive tips and suggestions on other high-quality schools in India, so if you know of any - please share them with us!

All the best,

Wildlife photography
by: Arpit

hey i wanna know about the duration of the wildlife courses your offering??

Jul 13, 2012
Duration of the course
by: Tobias

Hi, this is a "learn at your own pace" course. The core is the 70+ pages ebook that teaches you the basic wildlife photography skills.

You will also receive the audio version of this course so that you can listen on the go (it's in mp3 file format and works with any mobile player or smartphone). By the way, it was professionally recorded!

If you are quick you can do the course in a couple of days but that's not the best way to learn in my opinion.

Ideally you should strive to put one or two hours away each day for the course. Also it's highly recommended to practise while you learn (your local zoo might be the best learning spot - by far!)

All the best,
