Vikram Nanjappa is a multi-faceted individual with vast experience in fields that can be clubbed under one relevant header – “outdoors”. He is an able administrator, leader, team builder, and a reputed naturalist, writer and photographer. Vikram likes to be described as a well-informed amateur who is interested in the world around him.

He is presently working in the marketing department of Evolve Back (formally Orange County).

Here is Vikram Nanjappa on his stint as a Freelance Naturalist, Writer and Photographer – writing on wildlife and nature for magazines?

This was an interesting period in my work life. For the first time I was freelancing and found myself with a bit of free time (there does not seem to be much for a demand for a writer on wildlife) and therefore decided to pursue my other interests.
If you ask me to mention the photographers who influenced me the most or whose works I used to admire in my younger years, one name springs to mind – Hugo Van Lawick and David Hamilton. I had just spent the last seven years photographing wildlife and emulating, at least in my imagination, the works of Hugo Van Lawick and suddenly I was presented an opportunity to learn the art of David Hamilton.

I promptly joined a fashion photography course in Bangalore to learn the basics of the genre. No one would dare least of me, to describe David Hamilton as a ‘fashion’ photographer, but I needed to know the technicalities and the thought process that went into fashion/ glamour photography before I could attempt anything in the style David Hamilton.

While I cannot lay claim to much success in this venture I certainly did get a good understanding of the technicalities and did get some good results. I hope to return and complete my journey sometime in the future. A few of us (a model, another photographer, two stylists and a makeup artist) got together and did a few fashion shoots which was great fun.

At the end of the day, every customer, every guest coming to your resort needs to experience that feeling of total comfort – a feeling of belonging. This alone can be a big challenge, because the hospitality industry has so many touch points in terms of service delivery – right from the moment a guest checks in, to the time he checks out.

When it comes to customer engagement these days, happy employees make happy customers. And happy customers come back for more.  Timeshare in India is still at that early part of the curve in terms of product awareness and acceptance. So picking the right people for the right jobs is most important.
