ABOUT THIS HOLIDAY

Join us on this amazing and enlightening journey for a totally unique and rewarding experience where you will photograph the people, wildlife, places and colours of Rajasthan. In the company of Ashley and David our highly experienced photography trainers and escorted by our first class guide you will visit some amazing locations. There are plenty of companies offering photography trips to India but we passionately believe that you will find our photography tour is one of the best.  Not only will time be spent visiting the popular locations of Old Delhi, Jaipur and Udaipur but unlike many other companies you will also visit the real India and its wonderful rural communities and remote villages. Staying in specially selected hotels and heritage properties including forts and castles you will soon appreciate the hospitality and fantastic food that India has to offer. You will experience transport of all types from express trains, local trains, local buses, minibuses to a tut tut and cycle rickshaw. Our schedule is meticulously planned by us and Pradeep, our guide, and includes everything you require for your trip, including, flights, transport, entrance fees, local guides, accommodation and breakfast all the way down to the best places to eat and buy water! Photography opportunities are everywhere and you will have the chance to photograph the people, wildlife and vistas throughout the tour. We guarantee that you will struggle to decide which direction to point your lens!

Many people are often worried about travelling around India and becoming ill. There are a few basic rules to remember which we will discuss during our pre departure group meeting but most travellers usually fall foul by purchasing food and water from street vendors. Pradeep and ourselves will advise you throughout the trip on what is safe and what should be avoided. We only eat at tried and trusted restaurants.

Below is some of the feedback from those that travelled with us last year:

“Thank you so much for giving us the most amazing experience. One which I will never forget!”

“After just three days back we are already craving the blue skies and colours of India. It was such a privilege to be with you all – and we really thank you for making it such a fun and unforgettable two weeks.”

“A huge thank you from Ed and I – it really was a great experience and one we will never forget. We loved the company, the varied experiences and the complete assault on the senses that make India so unique! Photographically it was great to have such a variety of people, landscapes, architecture, low light, animals etc. to work with.”

“Thanks Ashley for organising it so thoroughly along with Pradeep and you are so patient I must have driven you round the bend at times!  It’s never an easy task organising an event as the responsibility can seem enormous at times so thank you for taking it on as I don’t believe it could have been done much better it was the  most amazing trip to mark my 50th and images that are ingrained in my mind I hope, for a very long time.  I really don’t believe without the likes of a “Pradeep” a trip like that could have been completed in such time nor bettered he was absolutely invaluable and so knowledgeable
