Hello, I am Sudhanva R Atri, an independent filmmaker and photographer, specialising in nature and conservation focused projects, based out of Bangalore, India. I am an enthusiastic storyteller keen on working with organisations that put ecological conservation in focus.
I have been a part of the team that made documentary films, some of which were screened at Sundance Film Festival (2015) and Berlin Festival (2013 & 2014).
Previously, I was part of the Media Lab at the Indian Institute for Human Settlements where I worked on Publication and Film projects. Prior to which I was heading the Marketing and Communication team at Light & Life Academy while also working as a Mentor and teacher to the students at the same photography institution.
I have also had the opportunity to work with the fantastic marketing team at Ather Energy between 2018 and 2020 to help build the AV communication arm.
A background in media, literature and psychology at Christ University, Bangalore helped create a foundation towards communication in general and visual communication specifically.
I have specialised in the art and science of photography at Light & Life Academy in the Nilgiris.
As a boy growing up in Bangalore, I spent weekends on our family farm discovering grasslands, orchards & woods and grew to appreciate the natural world. I love being outdoors and am constantly seeking ways and means to help protect and conserve the natural world and have made this my main goal in this existence.
Thank you! We will get in touch with you soon.
