CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – Bhasmang Mehta, wildlife photographer and founder of Wildlife Sojourns, has begun planning and curating wildlife safari excursions in India for clients from across the USA to their office in Charlotte, North Carolina. While maintaining his photography business, Wildlife Sojourns offers Bhasmang opportunities to share his talents in curating the best safari expeditions.
His longtime connections to the industry through countless safaris have afforded him the chance to witness amazing moments in nature, which he has captured and cataloged throughout his photography career.
Who is Bhasmang Mehta?
Born in India to a family of doctors and industrialists, Bhasmang joined the family business in Pharmaceuticals. In 2003, after a visit to Gir National Park, Bhasmang realized his love of photography and decided to go down the less traveled path to pursue wildlife photography as a career.
An avid photographer from a very young age, he has been on countless wildlife expeditions, capturing the wild side of nature on his camera. In 2017, he decided to share his experience of wildlife safaris with the rest of the world, and Wildlife Sojourns was born. A resident of North Carolina now, with strong ties to his friends and family back home, his wildlife photos have been published in prestigious magazines such as Lonely Planet and Frontline.
He has also contributed several works to the renowned Bombay Natural History Society. Bhasmang also regularly holds workshops on wildlife photography for enthusiasts, to teach them the nuances of the field.
A Portfolio Capturing Nature’s Beauty
After almost two decades of capturing wildlife photography in India, Bhasmang Mehta has a wealth of experience and established connections with some of the best forest guides in the country. With a combination of great resources, knowledge, and experience, Bhasmang captures beautiful shots of such species as the Asiatic Lion, the endangered Barisingha, and the endangered Siberian Crane.
Bhasmang combines this innate knowledge of these species, their natural habitats, habits, and behaviors with his skill behind the camera to amazing results. Capturing the Bengal Tiger and Indian Leopard with excellent precision, his photography services include an impressive level of detail.
Bhasmang is always searching for his next potential subject. Naturally, moving professionally to the United States sparked new curiosity upon discovering the wildlife living near his home in Charlotte, North Carolina. “It’s been a joy ride to explore and photograph wildlife of USA as it is pretty much entirely different from the Indian subcontinent,” Bhasmang says, “Totally new species of birds and mammals.”
Capturing high-resolution images of the American Black Bear, the Snow Goose, and the Hooded Merganser, Bhasmang shows universal talent in showing not only great skill in wildlife photography, but intuition. Showing attention to detail that is unmatched, Bhasmang perfectly captures a profile as well as the sense of intention in the subject’s movements.
