Rajasthan, Varinasi and the Holi Festival in India, March 18-29, 2019
12 days, 11 nights. $5,800; single supplement $880
I am not sure I have ever been anywhere in the world as photogenic as India and up in the north, in Rajisthan, it is just off the wall amazing for photography. The incredibly bright colors and eye candy in every direction is non stop and there are photo ops everywhere you look. We will be traveling all over the north of India in Rajisthan to some of my favorite locations including New Delhi and then of course the Taj Mahal in Agra, which is hard to describe in terms of pure magic for your camera.
We will also be able to photograph behind the Taj Mahal in one of my favorite places, along the river on the backside of the Taj where one of my best buddies lives behind the Taj Mahal with his family. We will also travel to Jaipur, home of the painted elephants which we will photograph by the huge and one of a kind, Agra Fort. The city of Jaipur is my favorite city in all of India and with the Pink City, Floating Palace and very special painted elephants, this is one amazing place.
We will also photograph the incredibly colorful Holi Festival in Rajasthan where it is all about color. Holi is a Hindu spring festival celebrated in India and Nepal, also known as the ” festival of colours” or the “festival of love”. The Holi festival involves covering everyone in colored powder and water and the images from this incredible festival are second to none!
We will also fly to the religious center of the entire country. Varanasi is a city in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh dating to the 11th century B.C. Regarded as the spiritual capital of India, the city draws Hindu pilgrims who bathe in the Ganges River’s sacred waters and perform funeral rites. This is beyond words in terms of photography and something you have to experience to believe. We will also photograph the people bathing in the Ganges and so much more in this incredibly unique city.
I am limiting this workshop to a maximum of 8-9 people, as I do not like large groups in foreign countries. The workshop will cost $5,800 and will include transportation in air conditioned buses, one or two guides throughout all of Rajisthan and Varinasi, all transfers, entrance fees to monuments, all hotels which are at least 4 star hotels and all buffet breakfasts and buffet dinners in the hotels.
The workshop does not include: the cost for two internal flights which are not expensive, lunches, tips, trip insurance & airport transfers in and out of New Delhi.
I will be helping everyone understand the best ways to capture this amazing country and work with each person individually on their photography. My guide is very knowledgeable and one of the best in India and I want to make sure everything is nailed down perfect for 2019. This is going to be one of the most photogenic workshops I have ever run as India has no match anywhere on earth for photo opportunities!
