Myself, Venkatesh BS (called Venkat by friends), am a passionate amateur photographer, traveller and also an avid reader/writer. I am based out of Bangalore, India.

I have been doing photography since my college days. After I completed my masters in Computer Engineering in the USA, I worked in a software company based out of Dallas, TX. I travelled extensively on the job, thus giving me a chance to do photo tours. Have visited nearly all states in the US, including camping in YellowStone National Park for photography. I had multiple opportunities to work in Europe, which I also utilized to strengthen my photography skills. On a professional level, I am currently an IT/Software entrepreneur.

For the last few years, I have done multiple cultural photo tours all over India, including meeting tribals. I also do wildlife photography and go on frequent safaris. Last year, I did a photo tour of various wildlife sanctuaries in Kenya, Africa.

Since 2020, I started participating in salons/exhibitions and within 2 years completed GMPSA. Overall, I have won over 1000 awards and 7000+ acceptances.in various salons. In addition, I am the captain/in-charge for the Nature Quarterly Contest for Federation of Indian Photography (FIP) since 2021. Last year, I received a plaque from FIP in appreciation of my services. I also serve as Salon Lead of my photo club Youth Photographic Society (YPS).

Earlier this year, I attended the PSA photo gathering in Jaisalmer, India (held for the first time outside the US), and got the opportunity to interact with many senior photographers of PSA. I also have contributed a few articles to various photography publications, and my writeup of the above-mentioned PSA gathering was published in Mar-Apr 2023 issue of Dristi bi-monthly magazine (awarded by PSA in publications) of my club YPS. In Sep 2023, I took up the volunteer position as PSA Travel Interclub Director.
