A Visual Masterclass on bird photography by Prathap teaches you to think like a pro bird photographer—and get professional results.
Do you know what makes a pro bird photographer win accolades? It's not the equipment. It's not the luxury of going places. It's not the time. It's the thought and image making process. This ebook by professional bird photographer Prathap will help you take your bird photography to new heights.
A professional photographer doesn’t go into the field to come back with loads of bird photographs. He or she has just one thing in mind: to get the best out of a given situation. One superb photograph is worth thousands of mediocre images. A pro photographer spends as much time understanding his or her subject as on photographing it, prepared for that key moment.

You will stop worrying about the images you have taken. Instead, you will concentrate on your potential to make bird photographs that are sure to get noticed.

Foreword by Rathika Ramasamy:
"Bird Photography Simplified is going to be one of the best eBooks on bird photography for a long time to come. Prathap's uncanny ability to simplify the concepts of bird photography and his evocative bird photographs makes this a unique eBook. The practical orientation and “think like a pro” concept is worth a read for any aspiring bird photographer and the experienced ones alike. It is loaded with field techniques that a pro photographer often uses. While there are many other bird photography books in the market, this eBook has a unique touch to it. Instead of bluntly saying what to do, Prathap has made the point about why and how to do. Having a sound knowledge about your own photographs is a potential advantage which not many photographers possess..."

"I just had to look at your ebook today. What an incredible resource you have put together! I didn't have time to read the whole thing, but I looked at every page, skimming the text, reading some parts in full. The photos are stunning, your conversational tone is wonderful, and your tips are spot on, every time." -Melissa Groo
"An absolutely awesome eBook, written in a very unique way, which makes it a one of a kind. A must read for everybody interested in bird photography, from the amateur “rookie” to the seasoned professional. It's technical, yet extremely practical; it's the first time that I read a book like this. It covers all aspects of bird photography. The technical (equipment) requirements as well as the practical “field” aspects to improve one's bird photography skills. What makes this eBook even more enjoyable is that Prathap wrote it in his own unique style, humorous, yet very informative." -Henk Liebenberg
‘“I found this book to be extremely helpful and very easy reading. No high million dollar words. The photos were very, very good. Even the Geeky guy can take something home from this book. I WOULD recommend this book even to a very top end professional because we sometimes forget the very basics and lose sight of what it takes to make a piece of ART not just a photograph” -Don Goeschl
“This ebook is going to be my first reference source as I learn to become a better bird photographer. I am just a beginner in this field of photography but with the expertise of the author and the brilliant design of the various chapters I know I will make rapid progress. The photos are a source of inspiration and clearly support the text. Well done.” -Ron Bateson
“Bird photography Simplified - A Virtual Masterclass" by Prathap is an outstanding eBook on all things related to photographing Birds and understanding bird behaviors and their habitats. It is one of the most complete books I have come across on the subject of Bird photography and covers everything from equipment, technique, light and composition, approaching birds and the entire process of making great photographs… Prathap is very honest and forthright in his teaching unlike other authors or books that seem to hold back on some aspects or tend to gild the lily a little. The book is also engaging and stimulating to the extent that I had to stop reading on many occasions to pick up my camera and long lens to just go out in search of birds to try out a concept or technique. That is what a Masterclass should do and Prathap has achieved that well. Often I wondered whether he wrote the book just for me. I am sure all readers have felt that way when reading the book. I recommend it wholeheartedly and anyone interested in bird photography should read the book, mark it up, try out the lessons in the field and reread it. I feel my bird photography skills have increased exponentially after reading the book.” -Venki Prathivadi
