Thomas Vijayan

Appointed as the first Ambassador by Nikon Middle East, Thomas has travelled across Africa, Canada, Brazil, Russia, the Amazon, India, and Kenya in the quest of capturing astounding images of these animals in their original habitat. He was recently the recipient of the UK-based Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2015 – People’s Choice Award, for his mesmerizing image titled ‘Swinging time’. The image was selected from 42,000 entries submitted from 96 different countries and has been added to the Museum’s special collection.

Here’s a glimpse into some of his outstanding work:


The Nikon Ambassadors are authorized by Nikon to demonstrate to the public and professional image makers the capabilities and use of Nikon imaging products, but the expressive content of their work is solely their own.  Nikon Ambassadors are independent contractors and visual artists and are not employees of Nikon.   Nikon Ambassadors are responsible for the content of their photographs, websites, exhibitions, and visual images and the manner in which such content and images are obtained.   Any messages, beliefs, or viewpoints expressed in the Ambassadors’ photographs, websites, exhibitions, or visual images do not necessarily reflect the opinions, beliefs or viewpoints of Nikon or any Nikon employee.
