[ Vishwa Manoharan ]

That extra hour, that additional mile;
Trekking a long lost path, walking a bustling street;
A passion for exploring, a greed to capture every moment;
The search goes on, for the best is next!


A dynamic young man with a keen eye for finer details, Vishwa Manoharan is passionate about nature and wildlife photography. He has trained under esteemed photographers, Ms. Rathika Ramasamy and Mr. K. L. Raja Ponsing.

His excellent shots and creative conceptualization have won him several accolades. His photograph themed 'Light and Texture' was adjudged the first prize by the eclectic cinematographer late Mr. Balu Mahendra and also two of his street candids were featured in the Tamil film KO directed by Mr. K. V. Anand.

Implementing his ingrained flair for teaching, he started 'Apertures & Shutters' in December 2012, offering basic and advanced training in photography for the budding photographers. A&S was formally ended in March 2016. Vishwa is now employed elsewhere. He continues to pursue his passion for nature and wildlife photography during his days off.
