Photography in India

King of colour, light and culture. Experience sensory overload from the bustle of the annual Pushkar camel fair to the ancient holy rituals of Varanasi.

Introduction

When it comes to colour, texture and people there can be no greater subject than India. But if you want to go a step further, come and see the country during one of its most celebrated festivals. We'll arrive in Pushkar during the annual camel fair- surely one of the most photogenic events in the world. In Jodphur, Jaipur and Varanasi every street is bustling feast of photo opportunities. We'll also visit some truly spectacular forts and palaces and finish in India's spiritual capital Varanasi, where ancient rituals and traditions can be seen wherever we look.

We’ll photograph Kushti wrestlers, and get the chance to see them train and fight in pits of yellow mustard oil, turmeric, ghee and milk. We’ll have a Sunrise photo shoot of the magical blue city of Jodhpur, and capture Varanasi's ‘sadhu’ holy men with their painted faces and hair in thick dreadlocks.

Why Photograph Here?

Where to start!? There are just so many incredible subjects to photograph. The beautiful markets Delhi, decorated in celebration of the Deepawali festival, the 'Blue City' of Jodhpur at sunrise, the camel traders in Pushkar dressed in colourful attire surrounded by their herds, the incredible Amer Fort in Jaipur and a private boat ride on the Ganges to photograph pilgrims bathing in the sacred river.

And as with all Frui holidays, our fantastic guides and tutors will always be on hand to assist and entertain you. All you need to do is enjoy the wonderful company and focus on your photography.

What makes this trip special?

On this tour we're lucky enough to be working with local guides who have helped some of the world's top photographers, such as Steve McCurry, get access to some really spectacular events and places. This means we’ll have everything immaculately planned and we'll be able to get some unique angles on these festivals so you come back with truly remarkable images.
