About Rathika Ramasamy

When Rathika Ramasamy was studying for a master's degree in business administration, her mind was on something else - roaming through the wilderness, exploring the magnificence of India's diverse wildlife. Born in a village near Theni, in southern Tamil Nadu, Rathika was always fascinated by nature. It was on a trip to Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary in 2003, that her love affair with wildlife photography began.


Today, she is famous as one of India's foremost wildlife photographers. In documenting birds through her photographs, she has developed a style of technical excellence that she flawlessly merges with a captivating story. Wildlife photography for her is not only a passion, but also a powerful medium to help conserve nature. Appreciated and featured in several publications and exhibitions, her work has won critical acclaim around the world.


In September 2005, Rathika participated in the Clean Ganga Campaign and exhibited her work at the India International Center, New Delhi. In 2007, she worked on a calendar for the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University that featured several species of birds found on campus. Not long after, in 2008, she made it to the list of top bird photographers in India by ‘Birds of India’. ‘Uccelli in Natura’, an Italian magazine on birds, selected and featured her as the best bird photographer from Asia, in 2009. In the same year, Doordarshan, India’s public service broadcaster honoured her as the first female wildlife photographer in India and featured her work on their channel.


Rathika is currently based out of New Delhi, India. She regularly conducts wildlife photography workshops and holds talks all over India. She also writes a column called 'Into the Wild' for Travel and Flavors magazine. If you ask her what drives her in her endeavours, this is what you’ll get to hear – “Every time I press the shutter, it's one step closer to Mother Nature.”
