Zhayynn James

Zhayynn James is a 2nd generation Landcape Architect, taking after his father, Sekar James and was born and raised in Chennai. Right from childhood, art was a medium of expression, through drawing and painting, as was a deep love of nature and wildlife. He studied in St. Bede's and later in M.Ct.M. Chidambaram Chettiar before enrolling in Madras Christian College, where his first foray into photography with a Yashica Electro 35 handed down from his father, saw him win his first collegiate photography competition in 1992. The camera is still a prized possession.

Zhayynn graduated from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia in the year 2000, having attained his Bachelor's degree in Landscape Architecture. His love towards visual arts, design and combined with his love of photography , lead to his first DSLR camera, a gift from his wife in 2013. Having attended a photography workshop that year at Toehold, under the mentorship of Jayanth Sharma, one of India's finest wildlife photographers and subsequent wildlife photo tours with Toehold, India's leading travel & photography company, Zhayynn has embarked on many wildlife photo tours in India and Africa.

Apart from being a professional landscape architect and hobbyist wildlife photographer, Zhayynn is also an avid sketcher, a black belt in karate and an ardent traveller.
