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.
