Shiv Kunal Verma - Wildlife Photographer
Having set the benchmark in the 1990s for films on all three services, Shiv Kunal Verma has had a unique ringside view of matters military.
His coverage of the Kargil War and the films on the National Defence Academy (The Standard Bearers) and the Indian Military Academy (The Making of a Warrior) are considered classics.
His illustrated books include Tamil Nadu and the highly acclaimed work—The Northeast Trilogy—which has also been published as a large-format book.
The Long Road to Siachen: The Question Why and 1962: The War That Wasn’t are considered among the most authoritative works in the Indian military history genre.
With hundreds of hours on fighter aircraft, fixed and rotor-wing platforms, the Doon School and Madras Christian College educated filmmaker and author is perhaps the most experienced aerial cameraman in India.
Along with a short film titled the Indian Canvas, he talks about photographing various parts of India from the air.
