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.

"Junglee"….wildlife art, part of "Rang De India" at Magnitude Art Gallery

I saw in the Deccan Herald that Magnitude Gallery in Jayanagar was having a “Wildlife of India” exhibition, so I decided to visit it

magnitude gallery jayanagar 240308

Mr Ramesh Magar, the owner of the gallery, spoke to me and explained that rather than lease out the space to various artists, he was trying a new model at Magnitude.

“We have eight artists who are employed by us,” he says, “And this frees them from the difficulties of earning their living only as and when they sell their art; we pay them a regular salary.” He has initiated “Rang De India”, a series of themes at the gallery. The last one was “Utsav”, which was on various festivals; the present one is “Junglee”, on wildlife; the next one proposed will be “Vanita”, on women. He says he asks the artists to produce painting on these themes, and then displays and sells them.
