What type of photography is covered?

Street photography up close and candid

Photo walks around the local streets will get you up close with the hustle and bustle of daily life. No long lenses, just candid, real photography, which can be full on and fast paced – bring your walking shoes!

Travel photography off the beaten track

You will have an adventure; be ready to explore off the beaten track and be immersed in the life and culture of the location.
This is travel photography that focuses on real-life, on people and the context of the place we are photographing, rather than looking for stunning locations and landscapes. Join us for the experience of a lifetime!

Reportage, keeping it real

Using the techniques we will develop over the workshops you will have a set of images that create a photo story of your journey, showing the reality like in a reportage article for National Geographic.

Environmental portraits

Photographing people is our passion: capturing characters in their environment tells their unique story. We will visit markets and railway stations, bustling streets and suggestive locations, portraying people as they work and go about their daily chores.

Learning about different techniques

We will demonstrate some key techniques that will take your photography to the next level, and then work closely with you on a daily basis to put these techniques into practice.

Shooting through and changing angles

We will encourage you to find different angles to shoot from, changing your viewpoint by getting up high or low, or finding objects to shoot through to add a new dimension to your photography. Developing your ability to micro compose, moving yourself/your camera to enhance the photograph will ensure you have more great images to pick from at the end of the day.

Looking for reflections

A simple technique but once you tune your eye into looking for reflections you will make good use of them to enhance your images; mirrors, water, even looking for not just single but multiple reflections within one image.

Telling the story with layers

One of the most complex compositional techniques that we will develop by starting simply and then evolving into complex photographs with several layers, each adding detail and drawing your eye through the picture.

Creating frames and bookends

When you look at a photograph you don’t want to ‘escape’ from it: we will work towards using people and objects as bookends and frames to hold your audience’s attention in your composition.

It’s all in the detail

As part of your documentary photo story you want images that set the scene, capture the characters and tell the story: when you focus in on some of the unique, specific details will enhance your storytelling.

Celebrating colour

Although we do love some high contrast black and white editing, we are equally inspired by colour; we will be looking at using broad strokes of colour in the environment to run through an image or a juxtaposition of colour that create some ‘pop’ to enrich the visual experience of our audience..

Finding the unusual in the usual

Some photographers have this skill in abundance; it’s definitely one that we continually revisit and develop in our own photography. It’s an approach, a mindset, looking for the extraordinary in the ordinary, the unusual in the usual, and you will have images that make you look and think!

What else we cover

Our workshops are definitely full on, from the time we get up and have breakfast together to the time we return to our rooms in the evening; there is a great buzz as we share our interest in photography throughout the workshop. There’s a great sense of fun which is why we are so pleased to welcome back people time after time on our workshops; we love being able to share our passion and inspiration with you.

Setting the challenge

As an introduction to the workshop we will look at a range of techniques and styles, then on a daily basis there will be opportunities to challenge yourself as we choose particular locations to develop key techniques.

Edit to keep

Our philosophy is to shoot hard, edit harder. Each day we will edit our images, culling them down to the best ones. We will then process them to enhance what you captured in camera: it won’t be about creating a new image on your laptop. We recommend you use Photomechanic and Lightroom.

Shared critique

Don’t be fearful: this really is a positive and important part of the workshop – each evening we will critique our images together, sharing what’s working and finding elements to improve; this means every day you will be able to see your techniques developing.

Good to know

We work hard to plan workshops in places that will inspire your photography and give you an authentic experience.
We work with local family run hotels and communities to consider the ethical impact of our workshops; for example over the last five years our workshops have supported a village school in Jodhpur and a street charity in Kolkata.
