New Workshop: Rajasthan, India Photo Trek

New Workshop: Rajasthan, India Photo Trek

Rajasthan, India Photo Trek

Feb 23th – Mar 8th, 2013

 

This is the workshop that many of you have been waiting for–some of you for a lifetime. After my trip to Rajasthan in June, I received so many emails from people requesting information about how they could do a workshop with us in this amazing and colorful state of India. Well, good news! We have decided to run the Rajasthan Photo Trek February 23 through March 8, 2013. I’m calling this a “photo trek” because we’ll be doing a lot of traveling throughout the state. The adventure begins in New Delhi where we will visit some amazing “secret” places in the city I know of  and love to photograph.

Then, soon after we take an overnight train (the best way to travel in India) and head to Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Jodhpur is known as the “Blue City.” It’s an amazing place of culture and color. While in Jodhpur we will also take a jeep and head out to the Bishnoi village, home to the Eco Warriors, to photograph these unique people.

After Jodhpur we travel by Toyota Innova to Pushkar. Puskar is a city built around a “holy lake,” and as such Hindu pilgrims and sadhus wander the streets as they prepare to for their ritual bathing in the lake. Pushkar also has an amazing bazaar that we will wander though and photograph.

After Pushkar, we travel to the small village of Pachewar where we will photograph village life. Next we’ll venture into Jaipur, the “Pink City,” the capital of Rajasthan. Jaipur is surrounded on all sides by rugged hills and crowned with forts. Enclosed by embattled walls, Jaipur was built in the early eighteenth century. While staying in Jaipur, we will make another excursion into the city of Amber to visit its ancient fort and the amazing Amber Step Well. After Jaipur we drive down the road to Neemrana where we will stay our last two nights at the Neemrana Fort palace, and visit the fascinating areas around the fort.

Each night we will be staying at heritage properties. These beautiful accommodations will give us a sense of the culture and history of Rajasthan. Don’t be left behind. We only have 10 spaces available and have had a multitude of emails asking for more details about this workshop. So be sure to click the link HERE and register soon!

    Wow these photos are absolutely stunning! Thank you so much for sharing – you’ve made my day 🙂
    I visited last year on a three-week trip with Travcoa. I thought that would be plenty of time to get a feel for the place – boy was I wrong! I think we just barely scratched the surface. But the highlight was definitely meeting so many interesting people on our travels and excursions. You’ve brought back great memories for me!

      Thanks Sam. One of the benefits coming on a trip with us is that my wife and I have lived in India for over 13 years and speak Hindi and Urdu. This plus the fact that I am a photographer and actually used to run a tour and trekking company in India gives us that extra edge that others may not have. You are welcome to join us.

    I have been to India once this year and love the country for its rich culture and of people. Of course, it is a photographer dream to visit India at least once or twice in the lifetime. When I see this Photo Trek and the photos you have capture, I immediately wanted to be part of it. Wonderful images Matt and the colors are amazing. You also worked hard to put together a great trek. Please include me on the mailing list when the trip is actually taking applications. Love your work and blog. I finally be able to comment since you move the blog to this new format. Thanks Peter
