Everything you’ve seen or heard IS TRUE – India is truly incredible and everyone will agree that the locations in this workshop are both inspiring and memorable. Markets like Chandni Chowk, Palaces like the Hawa Mahal and Jal Mahal in the Pink City, Jaipur, and the truly impressive Mehrangarh Fort in the Blue City, Jodhpur. Incredible landscapes and cityscapes, phenomenal people, intense colors – India is a absolutely photographer’s paradise. And we will be in India during the most colorful and fun festival of all – HOLI in Veranasi! Nine days of photographing the amazing people of India and street photography in the friendliest and most colorful country on earth – what could be better?
