ITINERARY AT A GLANCE
Nepal Photography Tour
Although Nepal is an adventure country this tour is not for those who seek adventure, it is purely for photographers! I love Nepal and its cultures blended into this small nation. Hindu temples are pilgrimage sites for Sadu - A holy men, Tibetan stupas are places to learn buddhism which express Tibetan traditions, Newari villages are still the way they were centuries back and are graced by talented artists. This tour explores the people, culture, scenic beauty of Nepal, while we explore advanced ideas behind photographic expression. Travel, interact, learn, be inspired. Nepal is magnificent, and this tour seeks to share the most beautiful aspects of it. We do go into the Annapurnas to get close to snow capped mountains.
October is the best time for photographers to capture the best of Nepal.

Meet The Photographer
My name is Raj and I love photography. I also love Nepal because the scenery is divine, the people are deeply generous and we have such great local guides to help us on the photo tours. They just don't stop smiling. I don't love climbing mountains though, so my photo tour is anything but a trekking tour :)
Advance Your Photography
If you want to explore your creative potential, learn about the basics of photography or gain a little professional insight then these tours are a magnificent way to do it. If you're ready to learn new skills while you travel then this is the trip for you. If you want to spend quality time with like minded people and enjoy the sharing of knowledge and experiences, then we would love to have you along.
I never want to run a photography tour with more than 8 people, let alone 20 or more. Smaller groups mean less drama, more fun and are infinitely more rewarding. My first responsibility is to ensure every person on my tour gets plenty of my time and advice, plus to ensure we don't ruin a lovely location by dragging a horde of photographers about. Small isn't just good, it's great!
Please check the brochure for additional details, but every tour includes themed sessions, one-on-one tuition, a copy of the "Photography for Travellers" book, internal ground and air travel, accommodation and many meals. International flights, spending money and cameras are not included.
