India Photo Tour – Life through the Lens

Capture real life on the streets of Kolkata and Jodhpur as the people of these vibrant Indian cities work and play. This street photography training tour, with award-winning photographer and Nikon Ambassador Mark Seymour, offers a unique cultural opportunity along with the chance to hone your skills.

We step away from the usual tourist haunts to witness everyday life on the streets of India – from the stallholders applying their trades at the markets to the railway tracks where adults socialise and children play. Mark will guide you in how to behave and position yourself to enable you to capture natural and candid photos, sharing what he looks for to create stunning documentary images.

We first focus on Kolkata ‘The City of Joy’ and home to the HOPE Foundation, the work of which will be supported with a contribution of £250 per person from this tour. The Wild Frontiers Foundation works with HOPE both in India and the UK to help vulnerable young people from the city’s streets and slums through education.

Highlights:

  • Travel with and learn from Mark Seymour, one of the UK’s leading documentary photographers and 2013 Nikon ambassador for wedding and documentary photography.
  • Develop your photography skills while gaining an incredible insight into the people and street life in India.
  • Photograph the colourful Flower Market, Hooghly River and Book Market, Howrah Junction Station and the railway track slums during our 5-day workshop in Kolkata.
  • Visit the HOPE Foundation and enjoy lunch at the HOPE café, where you can meet trainees at work.
  • Explore and photograph the city of Jodhpur, where its blue painted buildings and magnificent towering fort provide a vivid backdrop to life within the labyrinth of lanes and streets.
  • Meet the people of rural Bhenswara and outlying villages, plus the chance to spot the family of leopard that lives in the surrounding hills.
  • Enjoy relaxing evenings talking about the day and reflecting on the images you have taken.

  • Full services of a Wild Frontiers Tour Leader with local guides and drivers

Staying in Srinagar, take a shakara through the old town, along the Bund. It's not on the normal tourist circuit and is fascinating.
