“We travel not to escape life,
but for life not to escape us.”

-ANONYMOUS

Has it always been your dream to travel? Have you always thought how cool it would be to go to a place as colorful and exotic as India, and how even cooler it would be to photograph all the amazing places you see to show your friends and family when you get back home?

Sure you could sign up for an all-inclusive, package holiday and take your camera for the occasional excursions that your tour group makes from the resort that looks like all other resorts around the world.
---------OR--------
you could have a transformative experience partaking in adventure travel that allows you to really see the culture, while learning invaluable photography skills from a professional photographer so you can document your trip of a lifetime and share these memories with people back home.

Explore an exotic culture while learning how to photograph it! This trip is meant for those who want an adventurous, authentic time traveling through a country while learning how to photograph the amazing things that they see. 

MESSAGE FROM TINA G:
You will get the best hands-on training & guidance on how to use your camera while exploring this fascinating culture. No matter what level of photography you’re at, you will learn how to best capture all the incredible things that we see. From amazing temples, to bustling street markets, to the friendly faces of locals, you will be able to practice photography tricks you learned that day by capturing what you see while enjoying the local sights.  We will meet at the beginning of each day & go over certain photography practices. Then, we go out & photograph keeping that day’s lesson in mind. I will be with you so if you have any questions, I’ll be nearby for you to ask! We will then meet again as a group later in the day & share our images with one another. Feedback from me & the group will enable you to learn what succeeded for you during the day. You will be able to recognize your strengths & focus on them, and recognize your weaknesses in order to make your photography stronger.

Some of the photography skills that you will acquire on this trip:·
     How to approach locals to photograph them.·      
How to tell create a sense of place with your images and tell a story.·      
Camera settings and how to be proficient using aperture and shutter speed.·      
How to interact and establish rapport with locals in order to get the best portraits.·      
Portrait lighting techniques.·      
How to best use a speedlite.·      
Shooting RAW and digital workflow for travel photography.
