Hiran's passion for photography was born with a box camera in 1968. Since then a passion for nature, coupled with a passion for photography has become one of his greatest pleasures in relaxation.  Natures beauty in photography, with nostalgic emotions, bring memories of his father's introduction to this beautiful island's distant wilderness in Amparai,Yala,Wilpattu,Trincomalee and Anuradhapura. He was able to develop and expand his interest with the numerous trips to this beautiful wilderness.Father and his Exakta film camera, and son yearning for an improvement to the box camera, experimented with colour slides and prints in the early 70's. primarily 35 mm, with a variety of film cameras and a conceded transfer to digital a few years ago. As a printing professional and with in-depth study in the field, his knowledge and skills have produced photographs, used by printers in compiling calendars, pictorial diaries and greeting cards. A niche in his passion is to capture the reality of 'birds of prey', in action, gentle flight or perched in resting. His wealth of experience concentrated for correct sharpness, speed and exposure captures natures grace at dawn and dusk.
