Following a lifelong passion in the protection of wildlife and the conservation of natural resources, MN Jayakumar has established himself as one of India’s leading nature photographers and one among the few forest officials to take up nature photography.

He has had the privilege of travelling extensively across various National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries in India, capturing the essence of nature through his camera. The years of experience he has accumulated in observing wildlife in their natural habitat, have led to some priceless images supported by incredible stories. MN Jayakumar has won numerous awards and Certificates of Merit in National and International photography salons. He has also been awarded the Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, England (ARPS), the Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society, England (FRPS), Artiste of the Federation Internationale De L’art Photographique (AFIAP), Excellence in the Federation Internationale De L’art Photographique (EFIAP), and Master in the Federation Internationale De L’art Photographique (MFIAP). MN Jayakumar is the fourth Indian to have received the twin distinctions of both FRPS and MFIAP in Nature photography.

His photographs have been displayed across exhibitions in India, England, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Finland, Australia, Scotland, USA and South Africa. Select images have also been published in leading newspapers, magazines and books of National and International repute. He has published two books till date - Encounters in the Forest, a highly acclaimed coffee table book that he co-authored with renowned photographer Late Sri. T N A Perumal showcasing the biodiversity of Karnataka; and Life in the Jungle: Memoirs of a Forester, a treasure trove of his experiences and photographs from the jungles of India.

M.N.Jayakumar retired from service as the Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forests and Member Secretary, Zoo Authority of Karnataka. Having served for close to 4 decades, he is a true advocate of wildlife protection and conservation of natural resources.
