Shaaz Jung

A Wildlife Filmmaker and Professional Photographer, known as the 'Leopard man of India'


Shaaz Jung is a Wildlife Photographer & Cinematographer with a degree in Economics who left his corporate life behind & chose to follow his passion.

His connection with the wildlife of India is centuries old. Hailing from the royal family of Bhopal this shutter-happy royal found his calling after spotting his first leopard when he was eight. 

He studied economics at the Utrecht University in Europe, but instead of taking up a corporate career he decided to spend his life studying and tracking leopards in South India where he established ‘The Bison Resort’. 

He has spent the last decade guiding safaris at The Bison and specializes in tracking big cats. He has dedicated four years of his studies in understanding the elusive black panther. 

He is also the founder of BCRTI (Buffer Conflict Resolution Trust in India), a non-profit organisation that addresses conflicts with the buffer regions of protected forests in South India. 

He is also closely affiliated with African Under Canvas, where he leads wildlife and photographic expeditions.
