Valji Varia Nature and Travel Photographer
It is Valji Varia’s mission to utilise every moment of his time to witness the wonders that the natural world has to offer and to help others who share this enthusiasm to do the same!
Since witnessing the vastness and sheer abundance of wildlife inhabiting the Serengeti plains of Tanzania, Valji has been inspired to explore the finest wildlife habitats across the globe. He now documents these wildernesses and their wildlife with top quality photographs for Getty Images and the Natural History Museum Picture Library in London.
Over the past decade Valji has developed a serious passion for nature and in particular the big cats found throughout Africa and the Asian sub-continent. Valji has developed a greater understanding of the natural world by training as a Field Guide in Southern Africa. These creatures aren’t the easiest photographic subjects, and Valji’s determination and skill in documenting their lives is earning him international recognition. His article about deforestation in Nepal includes a rare view of an Asian leopard.
