Namal Kamalgoda

Namal Kamalgoda
Veteran Nature Photographer

Namal Kamalgoda is a wildlife conservationist and a photographer from Sri Lanka. He unveils Sri Lanka’s wildlife with a fresh and unique perspective through the lens of his camera.

Namal’s spectacular wildlife portraits are a rare and refreshing subject Sri Lankan photographers adopt. While his distinctive style celebrates Sri Lanka’s rich wildlife diversity. The habitats of the animals are also captured with such brilliance that the dense jungle becomes a delicate and safe habitat for the wild to live in.

Namal although thankful for the opportunities he receives to photograph wildlife as a hobby, wishes he could rather find an escapade and follow his heart’s desire as a full-time hobby. He is a self-learnt photographer and renders his great set of photographic principles and skill into his masterpieces today. His captures were also published in 3 coffee table books, giving his work recognition.

He has served in a number of wildlife conservation NGOs, and when photographing wildlife amidst the dense jungle, Namal’s hope is to capture the value and beauty of wildlife and its role in nature. He incorporates a variety of perspectives and compositions into his photography to showcase the beauty of wildlife and to create awareness for the need to protect them. The challenging compositions, color, shadow-detail, focal points and subject matter that he incorporates in his photography merge in order to dramatize the portrayal of his subjects.

Namal’s photographs are characterized by his love for wildlife and conserving them. His personal relationship with his subjects creates a unique impact that transforms the art of standard photography into a uniquely expressive and emotional form. This impact is part and parcel of the awareness he wants to build on the value of biodiversity and how Sri Lanka has been blessed abundantly with it.

The depth of animal emotion and its impact on humankind is made to contend with the serenity of a grazing animal. The graphically striking images, allow and enhance an image to speak a thousand words and acts as a predator preying on the viewer’s emotion.

The intricate details, of the animals from their fur to their stripes, from their skin to their eyes creates a photograph strongly focusing on expression and emotion.

Namal’s relationship with his camera is a strong bond as he has with animals. Thus, he connotates the emotion and timelessness of the animal kingdom with an underlying plea of saving them. He captures the expression and emotion that the human eye cannot see because of their neglected relationship with nature. Thus, he freezes precious moments through his photography so that the viewer may gaze into the eyes of the animal to rekindle their lost relationship.

Namal Kamalgoda’s work explores detail that describe the essential harmony within nature, wildlife and humanity. It’s this emotional connection that makes his photography fresh with an impressively unique flavor!
