Photo by Nikita Shrestha Shakya


I am a professional photographer specializing in wildlife and Nepali culture.

My works have been published worldwide in books, magazines and travel information booklets and have been exhibited at various galleries and events in South Korea, China, Australia and different parts of Nepal. I have been honored with numerous awards including the prestigious “Nepal in Camera” award given by Nepal Tourism Board and National Tourism Federation.

I am a major contributor of pictures at Nepal Tourism Board and quite a few of my photographs have been published as posters to promote tourism in Nepal.

I have been conducting free, weekly, photo-walks since 2007 as a knowledge sharing platform for all photo enthusiasts. It is an event open to all who want to improve their photographic skills or who want to share their photographic knowledge. Please visit my official photowalk website to know more about these events.

You can find some of my selected works on 500px, and on flickr. You can follow me on twitter, facebook, and google plus.
