Ripan Biswas belongs to the small village of Coochbehar, West Bengal, India. He has completed his masters in Environmental Science. Since childhood, nature has always been his inspiration. “The life and death of a grasshopper, the flashing green hue of a bee eater, the sound of smashing dry leaves on a forest floor in spring, always kept me enthralled” says Ripan.
He started nature photography in 2008 and macro photography of insects is a special attraction for him. His pictures are published in various national and international magazines like Sanctuary Asia & BBC Wildlife Magazine, and he has received many National and International awards in wildlife photography competitions. He is the only Indian wildlife photographer who has won the "Wildlife photographer of the year" two times consecutively. This award is popularly known as the "Oscar of wildlife photography". In 2019, Ripan was the winner in the "Portrait" category and in 2020 he won in the "Wildlife portfolio" category. Spreading awareness through his photography and work is his main aim.
