Shivan Parusnath

I am a PhD student at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. My research is focused on the conservation of the Sungazer (Smaug giganteus), a large charismatic lizard that is threatened by habitat destruction and poaching for the illegal pet trade. My research stems from a lifelong obsession with lizards, which these days, are the main focus of my photography. In order to capture their portraits to the best of my abilities, I have invested in gear that also allows for a wide range of macro photography and portraiture. These are the photos you see on display here.
