One Earth Fellow, India, 2019
Kartik Chandramouli from Mumbai, India is the Digital Content Editor at Mongabay-India. He works with a network of video contributors to produce and edit videos about environment and conservation. He has also directed and shot a few assignments, including stories from Sundarbans about the changing relationship between environment and people through an Earth Journalism Network grant. He was selected for National Geographic’s Out Of Eden Slow Journalism workshop and developed a photo story on urban floods. His work also includes creating graphics and maps. Kartik’s aim is to use multimedia to effectively communicate stories about the environment. Before joining a news organisation a year ago, he worked in digital advertising for 6 years designing brand campaigns and websites. He led the design team for the latter part of those years. He also worked with filmmakers and photographers to create digital content for brands. Photography got him into the creative field and bird watching was a stepping-stone to learn more about the natural world.
