Wildlife Photography @ iReboot

iReboot hosts wildlife photography bootcamp for third consecutive year

September will be a pretty busy month at iReboot which is gearing up for the third consecutive year of its most talked about program – the Wildlife Photography Workshop. The entries are pouring in, the program is currently being redesigned and the participants are already rearing to go. In a nutshell, this program combines two most common realms of hobbies- wildlife and photography- which have very good potential of being converted to full-time professions in the long run. iReboot will make the necessary arrangement to have the participants sent off to The Bannerghatta National Park with a qualified, professional wildlife photographer (their previous mentors include celeb names like Kalyan Varma and Amogha Varsha).

Students can expect professional guidance from their mentor and learn the basic principles of wildlife photography and most importantly, they can look-forward to a thorough individual evaluation of the pictures taken during Safari’s and various expeditions around the park. The course work of this program has been the main USP of the bootcamp. Participants have shared their appreciation for highly relevant content and have praised it for its detailed structure and synopsis.

Post program perks include a free membership to the Photon Club, where the skill-set of the participants are further nurtured through regular commercial assignments and meet-ups. In addition to this, iReboot ensures that the participants take complete advantage of the resources available for their long-term benefit, such as one-on-one sessions with the mentor, tie-up’s with renowned photography magazines and networking at large.

September 2010 workshop for wildlife photography will be held at the Bannerghatta National Park on the 18th and 19th. Program relevant information can be found on iReboot’s website www.ireboot.com.

Wildlife/Photography Expedition to Agumbe

Amoghavarsha, an experienced wildlife photographer, is conducting another monsoon wildlife/photography expedition.

The next monsoon expedition to Agumbe is scheduled for 28th and 29th of August. This will be the last expedition in the peak monsoons, after this the monsoons will subside and so will photography opportunities.

The last expedition was exciting and very fruitful with sightings of 2 wild King Cobras at close quarters and of course many more snakes, frogs and nocturnal animals.

“Places I Like”: Photo Exhibition at Max Mueller Bhavan

Places I Like
From a workshop by Stefan Koppelkamm
Photo Exhibition

17 – 29.08.2009, 9.00 a.m. to 6.30 p.m.
Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan

Inauguration on 14.08.2008, 6.30 p.m.
All are welcome!

The objective of the intensive 3-week workshop for Bangalore photo enthusiasts, conducted by German photographer Stefan Koppelkamm, whose exhibition Ortszeit/Local Time has just concluded at the Bhavan, was to define the personal criteria that determine the “quality of life” in a city. The focus was more on the routine and normal, rather than the unusual. Social aspects of the city (neighbourliness, the presence of smaller stores and cottage industries, etc.) that are not immediately discernible to outsiders were more important than outstanding architecture or excellent design.

The 15 participants – a mix of professional and amateur photographers – started their field work in the last week of July trying to visualise the intrinsic qualities of “their” places. In the second part of the workshop the group discussed the different projects and made their selection for the exhibition.

The places portrayed in this exhibition are as diverse as the city itself: They include bustling markets or shopping centres such as Russell Market or Avenue Road, secluded and peaceful areas such as the Mughal Fort and the Someshwara Temple in Ulsoor, Charles Correa’s Bimanagar township from the early ’70s and the L&T South City, a recent project on the periphery of the city which is contrasted by quarters like Malleswaram or Cooke Town, where the architectural heritage is threatened by land speculation and the building of freeways. Two of the photographers portray their favourite hangouts, one a small café in Indiranagar, the second one the famous Koshy’s in St. Marks Road.

In the case of Avenue Road which is actually threatened by plans to widen the road, the exhibition might hopefully be a strong visual argument against the destruction of this unique architectural and socio-economic ensemble.

Assam & Arunachal naturalists trip

T Nature Club is pleased to announce its winter trail to a beautiful region of the North East India… Namdapha.

Dibru-Saikhowa is a biosphere reserve. This little known site, is one of the biodiversity hot spots situated in the south bank of the river Brahmaputra. It is located in the alluvial flood plains of the Brahmaputra. Fashioned by nature – earthquakes and ever changing water courses it has numerous island pockets and water bodies providing an unusual habitat for varied wildlife
and aqua fauna and avifauna.

Contained between the Debang, Lohit & the Great Brahmaputra rivers,the 340 sq Kms reserve was set up with a view to protecting the grass land and swamp habitat. Its internal water channels & bodies,seasonally flooded forests, “beels”, and grassy pockets, makes it an interesting birding destination for rare specialized grass land and swamp forest birds such as the threatened Marsh Babbler, Jerdon’s Babbler, Black throated Parrotbill, Rufous-vented( swamp) Prinia, and Jerdons Bushcat. You can also spot altitudinal migrants such as Pale-capped pigeon, White-tailed Rubythroat,and Black – breasted Thrush, and various warblers. More than 300 species have been recorded.

Frames of Mind 2008….

Is a photograph really about what you see? Or is it about how you see what you see?
At Bangalore Photography Club, it is believed that a photograph is about a frame of mind. A perspective. When a frame not only tells you what to see, but what to hear, smell and feel you know it’s more just a snapshot. It’s a true photograph.

Showcasing work of more than fifty artists across photo categories as well as winning photo documentaries, Bangalore Photography Club is delighted to welcome you its third annual photography exhibition, Frames of Mind 08.

Hope to see you there..
Dates : 29th – 31st August 2008 (10am – 7pm)
Venue : Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Race Course Road,Adjacent Chalukya Hotel, Bangalore-01
Phone : (080) 22267303/22265746/22267421

Photowalk Down Residency Road

On August 23rd, people in 192 cities around the world will go on a “photo walk” apparently to celebrate the launch of some book. Yes…it hardly sounds like a worthwhile reason to expend energy on a Saturday morning, but look at it this way… it’s just cool that the whole world will come together under a few common flickr tags that day. So if you’d like to know more about this event and register for it, please visit:
