Photography Workshop

We collect a lot of feedback from our participants. At the end of our photography workshops, the participants are asked to fill in a rather long feedback form (an online form), where we not only ask for their ratings on specific parameters, but also give them plenty of free space to comment on the workshop content, structure, instructor and the facilities. We make a request to fill in as much details as possible, since we go through every feedback with care, discuss them and see if there are any improvements to be made. Going through a series of these feedback collected over last two years in an attempt to understand what makes us click, we could see five important reasons why participants may have been repeatedly referring their friends to us, and also coming back to us again to learn more and explore the outdoors on our photography tours. There are more than 5 reasons, but let’s limit to the top five for now, and take a quick glance at a small number of the many testimonials.

1. Highly knowledgeable instructors with excellent communication and a willingness to work with every participant all through the workshop, and even after workshop is complete. As participants of our past workshops say

“Very friendly instructors.” – Prasanna D

3. Our workshop is beginning of a lasting relationship in pursuit of photography as a fulfilling activity, not just limited to a weekend interaction.

+ Our photography workshop is never treated as a two day course that ends on the second day. Rather, it will always be beginning of a new fulfilling hobby/practice into which we journey together. We continue to interact and work with participants, be available to help and solve problems related to photography. Participants often call/email on a tricky subject they have been trying to photograph and need help when they are out with a camera.

+ Participants also get access to an exclusive online group to discuss/interact on photography and share their images, get feedback from other group members and the mentors.

+ Participants can also attend our free get-togethers and talks on specific topics in photography, which help further the pursuit of photography as a passion. These also serve as opportunity to meet fellow photography enthusiasts with a common interest.

+ Continued exposure to opportunities and next level programs that help you steer your photography in the right direction, discover the possibilities of focusing in specific genres of photography and enjoy a continued mentoring in the pursuit.
