Photographer, film-maker and the former photo editor for National Geographic Traveller India, Ashima Narain has worked on a diverse range of subjects that have sent her wading through mudflats in search of flamingos, climbing sail masts mid-sea and driving vintage cars across India. She has twice been nominated for a Green Oscar and been the recipient of the Ramnath Goenka Nature & Environment Photographer in 2006 and the Commonwealth Photographer for South Asia in 2004.
In 2013, she was a judge for 3 episodes on National Geographic Channel’s photography reality show Mission Covershot. Ashima’s passion in mentoring photographers has led her to be a National Geographic Expert for Student Expeditions, and to conduct workshops across India to promote the understanding of photography. Ashima’s work has been published in the coffee table book, Dining With the Maharajas, and magazines such as National Geographic Traveller, Vanity Fair, Vogue, GQ, Elle and Marie Claire.
