About Me

Hi,

Krishna Mohan

I am Dr. Krishna Mohan (krishi as I am affectionately called). I am a surgeon practicing at my own hospital – Prabhu Hospital at Moodabidri along with my wife Dr. Radhika Prabhu. I live at Moodabidri in my home Akruthi along with my wife and daughter Neethi.

My varied interests include trekking, mountaineering, wildlife conservation, photography, classical music, computers and Internet. I was a member of the team of 1990 Expedition Brahma I, to scale 21,050 feet of this world’s 17th toughest peak on western Himalayas. I am also member of Arohana, mountaineers and adventurers, Mangalore.

I served for World Wide Fund for Nature in 1989-92 and conducted innumerable nature camps for young nature enthusiasts at Mudumalai, Bandipur, Nagarhole,& Bhadra wild life sanctuaries. Now I am an active member of Wildlife First. I am the founder member and the presently secretary of the CyberForum Of Mangalore, the organization responsible for getting Internet connectivity to Mangalore & Udupi districts. I have conducted numerous workshops & lecture demonstrations on world wide web and Computers in general in & around Mangalore. My special interests include medical software, bleeding edge technology, Linux and other open source as well as free software, Pocket PC.

My main interest in photography include Macros, Closeups and Nature. I use this blog to educate people about nature as well as on photography techniques. I along with few friends started Mangalore Photography Club few years back. Under this very succesful club we have been conducting several photography workshops, boot camps and photo walks. We have a 2500 member strong and very active photo critic forum on Facebook which will help in learning photography as well as critically analyzing and improving photos.

This year I started a new venture called Creative Focus. It is an unique idea helping aspiring photographers to gain knowledge of Photography using one-on-one workshop. You will gain a clear & concise understanding of skills and technique behind the art of Photography. Sharpen your skills as well as refine your technique with our exclusive hands on workshops specially catered exclusively for you, keeping in mind your experience, knowledge and your needs. Our workshops are held in a compact environment with not more than six participants, so each one can interact as well learn the techniques hands-on.

Currently I have a self assembled Intel i7 4770k with 32GB Ram 8TB HDD space, running Windows Technical preview with multi booting into several Linux distros. I have Moto X Phone, Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera as well as innumerable gadgets which I like to test and play.

  12. Was looking for info on the pied paddy skimmer and chanced upon here. Its great to see some one with such a myriad of interests. I am myself a amateur photographer, a android geek, and into literature and like you love the outdoors. Reading about people like you is indeed an inspiration to never rein in your interests. thank you.

  13. Dear Krishna,

    I was very impressed by your beautiful photography of a Monkey Puzzle, which is of particular interest to me. I am interested in ethology and the behaviour of butterflies, and the use of the tails and eyespots of lycaenids to imitate antennae. I was hoping to use your photograph (with acknowledgement) in a book I am writing about science and evolution, in which I describe my search for the Sri Lankan Monkey Puzzle.

    Best wishes

  14. Dear Mr Krishna Mohan,
    I have tried several times to send you a message on your Contact Me tab, but it simply does not go through. (Your Contact page seems to time out before one can click Send, presumably out of an excess of caution against spambots!) I would like to use one of your excellent photographs as an illustration in a scholarly article of mine on the Natyashastra, due to be published in a print academic journal in the US. I need to do this quickly, so please contact me at my official e-mail address as soon as possible. Many thanks in advance,
