Akash has followed his father’s footsteps in taking to wildlife photography. What started as late night drives on deserted airfields trying to spot leopards and chasing albino foxes with Jai on the wheel of their yellow Willy’s jeep, or drives to Shahdol, Amarkantak, and Achanakmar to sight tigers and leopards, has snowballed into pure passion for both of them. They spend as much time in the jungle as they can where they both enjoy their wildlife photography, learning from each other and from others whom they encounter on these sojourns.
