    A concept planned and developed by Nature Wanderers, Canon Wild Clicks is one of the most exciting and thrilling competition to be a part of. The event brings all amateur photographers on a common platform where they shoot under the same shooting conditions. This is a test of a photographer's shooting skills and his sensitivity towards moments. The past 2 editions of Canon Wild Clicks were held at Corbett (2010) and Ranthambhore (2011). Season 3 of Canon Wild Clicks was held at Kanha National Park in January 2012. 

    Over the years, Canon Wild Clicks has grown as a competition thanks to our participants who come up with amazing photographs during the 3 days of the event.

    The underlining aspect of CWC is that it's all about witnessing and capturing those fine, intrinsic wildlife moments... it's not about the equipment you use but your ability to think out of the box when you are put under a defined time frame and shooting scenarios.

    Canon Wild Clicks is the opportunity for an amateur to showcase his skills and get instant gratification from wildlife experts.

    Ganesh H. Shankar
    Ganesh H. Shankar is a poet at heart and he writes visual poems using the medium of photography. His approach to nature photography is two fold - an artistic expression of nature mostly using monotones or creative expressions of nature wherein he tries to make unique perspectives of nature.

    He started photography with an inexpensive point-and-shoot camera in 1993. Ganesh loves the unexplainable art of colors, colorless, forms, shapes, light... and the challenge of characterizing interactions of those attributes which touches minds of those who love the art of light.
