Raise your travel portrait skills to a new level in India's most colourful state, and one of the most photogenic locations for people photography on the planet. A place where the biggest photographic challenge is deciding whom to photograph, from among several several attractive subjects around you at all times.

Indulge in a symphony of colours, filled with spectacularly vibrant dresses, insanely photogenic faces, combined with some of the finest, intricate Indian architecture.

You will be swept away by Rajasthan's intensity, caleidoscope of colours, and raw yet refined beauty.

We will also have two photoshoots with local models in traditional saris against the backdrop of gorgeous palaces.

No entry restrictions.

Locations

Jodhpur

Jodhpur is affectionately called Blue City, as most buildings in the old town are painted blue - providing a beautiful backdrop to people's colourful dresses. Jodhpur's daily market is a photographer's paradise, as people from nearby villages show up in their best, immaculately clean dresses, complete with spectacular jewellery.

Jaipur

Jaipur is home to some of the most beautiful architecture in India, featuring elaborate structures and intricate ornamentation - a perfect setting for people photography. Outstanding palaces, step wells, and open-air astronomical instruments of Jantar Mantar will all be on our busy itinerary.

This Trip Is For...

This trip has been designed primarily for people who have already completed my training "3 Steps To Stunning Portraits", and are already familiar with natural light and composition techniques for people photography.

During this trip, you will learn how to apply these techniques to travel portraits - both candid and posed.

You need a good camera with a telephoto lens up to at least 200mm (full frame) - plus a wider lens when we can get up closer to people.

Personally, I will bring 24-70mm f2.8 and 70-200mm f2.8.

  • No vaccinations required

  • Visa: most nationalities are eligible for e-visa (applied for online)get visa on arrival (please bring US$ 55 in cash). Check eligibility: India Visa
