Award Winner | Photo of the Day | October 25, 2012
As a bird photographer it is always fascinating to see a spice which is rear to my county. This photograph of Nutcracker (Nucifraga) taken near the Chele La Pass, Bhutan. Nutcrackers are in the family Corvidae, related to the jays and crows. I went to Bhutan for the Bhutan-Bangladesh Birding and Photo Exhibition, and didn’t miss the opportunity to take some bird photographs from Bhutan.

Photographer: Saniar Rahman Rahul (Dhaka, Bangladesh) Registered Photographer
Saniar Rahman Rahul was the first winner for ‘Photo of the Month Award’ in June 2010. He was fascinated by seeing his father taking pictures with a camera while his family was in Iraq during his childhood. Later in life, in 1997, while he became very much attached with his profession of ‘graphic design’, Rahul rediscovered the creative side of photography. He started his career as a professional graphic designer in October of 1995, in a pre-press house called Color Scan, which is one of the pioneers in the pre-process printing media in Bangladesh. Afterwards, he moved to Power Point, another pre-press house. Before he finally settled into advertising, he also worked in an IT company called Abtab IT. Moving to advertising from printing media was a big step for him. In 2005, he joined G3, a special wing of Gray Worldwide. Two years later, he moved to Paper Rhyme. Now he is working as the Art Director of Grey World Wide, one of the ten largest advertising agencies in the world.
