Prodigies are indeed “gifted” in some ways or the other. Breaking all the age stereotypes, Arshdeep Singh, a ten-year-old, has scripted history by receiving the most prestigious award Young Wildlife Photographer of The Year– Asia. It was his candid snap of the two owlets peeping out of a waste pipe that strung the title.
Arshdeep was born to a known photographer family, Randeep Singh, framing one’s shot was his first lesson learned when he was a mere six-year-old. Even his father got stunned when Arshdeep showed the picture of the owls. He further exclaimed that it seems that the two owls were looking straight into my eyes. I felt like each one of them wanted to say to me- I saw you!.
Inspiration For Becoming The Photographer
He used to travel a lot with his father, an enthusiastic wildlife photographer, to forests. One day when he grabbed his father’s camera and started taking random pictures that convey some type of story to him. Seeing Arshdeep’s effort and his picture sense, his father gifted him with a DSLR camera on his fifth birthday. Since then, the Young Arshdeep started creating history with his camera and finally landed to receive the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2018 in the Young Awards Category (10-years and Under).

A Message For The parents
Arshdeep strongly believes that every parent should support their kids in whatever he/she want to pursue in their life. We just can’t force them to go into the conventional profession. “If you love taking pictures, just get out there and click away. I would request parents to support kids in their passions. You never know your child might be the next wildlife photographer of the year!”, Arshdeep quips.
