An Explorer & Landscape Photography Artist.


Lalit is a fanatic nature lover, an explorer, challenge seeker and an artist inspired by nature!

Lalit Deshmukh is a professional fine art photographer situated in Pune, India. He captures special moments in nature, invokes emotions with the help of compositions and light.

When Lalit is not traveling, he teaches photography. Lalit is an invited speaker in various corporate organizations and institutions.

Lalit takes arduous efforts to travel to the least inhabited places on earth. It may involve sharing the jeep with 20 others or walking on the lonely mountain trail for hours together above 14ooo feet or finding way through the tropical jungles. He would sleep in simple tribal house or in a tent in the mountains. He prefers a million stars accommodation amidst the nature.

What Lalit Does

You don’t take a photograph, you make it.

Ansel Adams

Landscapes is Lalit’s first love. He travels and puts himself to the limits to capture something unusual and unseen. His keen sense of composition and in combination with light allows him to see the beauty of the landscapes very differently.

Lalit Photographs various other images beyond landscapes and maintains a healthy stock of Wildlife, Birds and nature in its incredibly unique setup. His travels has taken in many corners of India, from Rajasthan, Kutch from west  to Assam in the east as well Ladakh and Uttarakhand in the north to Maharasthra in the south, and he has photographed images of travel and culture.

To continue to create beautiful art, as artists, we must first learn how to keep our hearts open..for new ideas, even criticisms and also failures. The moment the ego sets in, we are on our way back

The best times I had in the gallery when someone spends almost 1.5 hours looking at the photographs and reading the captions. I curiously look for the smiles on their face and its such a joy to notice it. Then I know that my heart and theirs have resonated well.

Learning this from Lalit Deshmukh Sir was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Photography was always a passion with me but in the course of running a business, photography took a backseat. However finally I took a decision & signed up for a Basic course in DSLR photography. Learning this from Lalit Deshmukh Sir was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Since then whenever I can, I take part in the photo tours organised by Impression not only to hone my skills but also to meet like minded people & forge bonds with them. 

The photo tours attended by me were amongst the best times I have had in travelling. To see a place , be it a landscape, the sky, birds, monuments, from the eyes of a photographer, from the perspective of a photographer was a great experience. The best part is also to be amongst like minded people sharing the same passion for photography. Understanding how the same beautiful subject is perceived by different people.

Amazing workshop on “Basic Digital Photography”

Dear Lalit
At the outset, let me thank you for the amazing workshop on “Basic Digital Photography” on 20th & 21st May 2017. It was a highly enriching &  learning experience for me, till then photography meant nothing more than hitting the CLICK button randomly for me. I am happy to share that this workshop has surpassed my expectations. It has made me a bit LITERATE about the DSLRs & photography as an ART.
Thank you once again & looking forward to joining your crew some day for the photography expedition(s) as a never ending  learning journey
