I’ll be hosting another exciting photography workshop that will take you on a journey through the incredibly unique festivals, fairs and celebrations of India that are absolutely teaming with photo opportunities. From visiting some of the most iconic monuments in the best light, to exploring vantage points that only a few experienced guides know about, this workshop is designed to be a roller-coaster ride of new experiences and one-of-a-kind photographs.
Always being one step ahead of the tourists, we will start our journey amidst the chaotic streets of Delhi, a perfect place to warm up our shutter clicking fingers. Following the Yamuna River, we will then visit Agra, the place where the Taj Mahal rises from the dust-beaten earth of Uttar Pradesh, pure magic to the camera. Travelling westward our final destination will be the golden desert city of Jaisalmer on the way passing through Jaipur, Pushkar and the stunning Jodhpur.
The highlight of our time together will be experiencing Diwali in Jaipur. Here we will have the opportunity to capture the illuminating display of fireworks and lights that adorn the city’s many streets, temples, and markets making this incredible pink city of India come alive with joy and celebration.
The workshop will then take us to Pushkar, where you will witness the world’s largest Camel Fair. Each year around 200,000 people converge here, bringing with them some 50,000 camels, horses, and cattle. The fair also features various competitions, such as the longest moustache competition, offering a unique opportunity to capture the local culture and traditions of Rajasthan.
Our time together will include individual and group discussions, inspiring ideas, post processing secrets and great fun!

It is typically 30% more than normal travel insurance but gives you peace of mind. In case the workshop is cancelled by me, for any reason, the extent of my liability is limited to the full return of fees paid for the workshop.
