Hermis Haridas

I come from one of the most beautiful places in the world known as Gods own country, Kerala in India. Born in a small village called Chemmarathur in Vatakara of Calicut District in Kerala. Whenever I needed to relax my mind one of my hobbies was to drive through and explore different locations of Kerala. Traveling has always been a passion of mine. Those days I was accompanied by a film camera that was gifted by my cousin. After finishing my graduation in Computer Science from Bangalore, I planned to move out of the country for a good career opportunity.

I moved to Dubai in 2007 where I was able to get into a profession which I wished to be in. I got an opportunity to prove my skills in Web Development. Within one year I could get into the vast world of web development. In my career I became a Technical Developer where I handle website development, back-end development including CMS, server management, domain management, social media customization, SEO and so on…

One year into living in Dubai I started brushing up my Photography skills which gradually became another passion of mine along with Travel which in turn became an integral part of my life. I loved to capture the actions of birds and animals and hence I got deeply involved in Nature Photography. I regularly drive through different locations in UAE and try to capture moments hitherto uncaptured.

My trips to exotic wildlife locations including Russia, Arabian deserts, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India and African continents, gave me the opportunity to understand the subtle nuances of wildlife photography.

In 2014, I started an organization along with my best friend Nisha Purushothaman called Paws Trails, a global platform for sharing, caring and getting closer to nature. Paws Trails main intention is to build awareness among the common people on the importance of preservation and conservation of nature. It started between the two of us and now we have over 40 plus people volunteering across the globe.

We have an online magazine, conduct photography exhibitions every month, awareness building talks and wildlife photography workshops to different destinations. In 2017 I left my job from the digital world and moved completely to Paws Trails.

I believe in the adage that “practice makes perfect” and there isn’t a day in my life without peeping at the world through my “third eye”.
