The Lesser Golden-backed Woodpecker, Indian Roller, Oriental White-eye, Tickell's Blue Flycatcher, the not-so-common Common Rosefinch and the Red Whiskered Bulbul – these exotic birds were captured on camera in and around namma Bengaluru. And these earned city-based photographer H. Satish a ‘masters’ of a different kind. Mr. Satish, president of the Youth Photographic Society, was recently honoured with the ‘Master – ICS’ by the Image Colleague Society of California (ICS) for a set of 25 digital images on ‘Indian Birds’ under the category of ‘Art of Photography’.

He is also the recipient of the ‘Master Distinction’ from FIAP (Federation of International Art of Photography), and thus, the only Indian to have received two master distinctions (in nature photography). Of the 25 photos that earned him his latest distinction, 22 were shot in Bengaluru and the rest in the Himalayas. “There are a lot of beautiful birds in Bengaluru. Wherever there is a little bit of water, you can find birds. I shot thee pictures near Kanakapura Road, Hesaraghatta lake and Manchanabele dam, among other places,” he said.

The full-time photographer, who started when he was as young as 12, is into industrial and product shoots. He also teaches basic photography to enthusiasts.
