Below is some of the feedback from those that travelled with us on the last India Photography Holiday

What a fantastic experience from start to finish! Very well organised, always on the go and just the perfect balance of “real India” while still pandering to (most) western quality expectations. The itinerary was perfect, our guide Pradeep was brilliant and I learned so much about photography without it being at all intrusive. You could easily do this just as a brilliant sightseeing tour, but travelling with a small group of like-minded individuals with a shared passion and outlook just made it so much more. Truly the trip of a lifetime and I cannot wait for the next one! (March April 2024)

The Amazing India Trip was, “… as it says on the tin “ amazing. It exceeded all expectations . The sights and sounds of India were a culture shock … but in a good way ! The organisation, by you and Pradeep ran like clockwork and nothing seemed too much trouble! On top of all that, I  met a great group of people who made it even more special! It would be hard to beat this trip. (March April 2024)

Just wanted to thank you, Ashley, for the most amazing trip to India. As a complete photography beginner, a relatively new camera and a lady on my own, I couldn’t  have wished for more. The group were great fun and supportive. Everyone was there to learn, give tips and advice. For anyone reading this, I refer to my different lenses by their colour or just long or short and not their aperture size – I will never remember that information. Just not me. Ashley, you were incredibly patient with me and everyone else and never minded explaining things more than once!!!!!! Most importantly we saw some fabulous sights, experienced many wonderful aspects of Indian life and stayed in some very special locations. I have come home with some phenomenal memories and some great photos. Arranging for us to see the tigers – 5 in one afternoon at Ranthambore not to mention the kill and seeing the Taj Mahal at both sunrise and sunset were the highlights for me. Where next? (March April 2024)

It was the most amazing, colourful and fun filled  adventure.  It was hard work at times and so very hot, but nobody could have predicted that.  I would not change a thing,  We had to cover the miles we did as it is such a vast country,  so we could see  and do all the things that we did.  Staying in Indian Heritage properties, while they may have eccentric plumbing and electrics at times, was all part of being in India and not to be missed.   The  mixture of large cities with their iconic sights, and small villages was superb. The various forms of transport was fun and again gave you the real flavour of what travelling in India is all about.  I would not have missed this trip for anything and would do it all again in a heartbeat. The information given in the meetings before we went was totally representative of what I expected and we experienced, despite a couple of the places being visited in reverse order.   I knew this was not going to be relaxing holiday. but it has been an unforgettable experience. Loved every minute of it.

Personally, I thought it was brilliant and a lot of that was also to do with the group dynamics, which is something you cannot plan.  You have an excellent guide in Pradeep and at times, we certainly challenged him.This ‘holiday’ had everything from amazing heritage buildings, to local villages and lots of wildlife. I have learnt so much more about my camera on this trip and that I can do portrait photography – from a distance.

I absolutely loved all the various forms of transport, especially the local train and the tuk-tuks.  All connections worked perfectly.  There was complete confidence that everything was going to happen as intended.  Even upgrading the Virgin Flights to Economy Delight with all the additional benefits that brought – especially extra leg room. Not a problem for me as I am vertically challenged but Adrian was extremely grateful. Udaipur was brilliant and a great place to end the trip.  The cooking class at Pradeep’s house and his very generous hospitality was yet another amazing highlight.  The trip was filled with so many highlights it’s difficult to single anything out. Pradeep is a gem, one in a million!  The trip was brilliant, well organised and well executed.  I second Ana’s comment about the group dynamics.  This was the icing on top of the cake.  A huge thank you to everyone for the part they played.  This will be a trip that neither Adrian and I will forget for all the right reasons! Pradeep is a gem, one in a million.

Thank you so much for allowing me to fulfil a dream. Visiting India has been on my list for such a long time. As you know my parents spent several years in India, and my father was part of the Indian Army. I thought the itinerary was amazing and allowed us to see so much. Whilst the sights and sounds of Delhi are hard to forget, they will live on as a memory. My photos seem to reflect the diversity of each and every place we visited. The hard work and enthusiasm that both you and Pradeep put in certainly pays off, and yes whilst it is a full on experience , I feel I have seen the true India, which was the exact reason I wanted to visit.  And I will never ‘Click a Picture’ again without thinking of Pradeep. I am sorry that I missed the cookery class and his hospitality, but his thoughtful gift is hanging on my front door, to remind me.The forms of transport we used were also an experience in themselves, whilst travelling on the trains, I felt many a Michael Portillo moment, having watched his journey’s. The local train was a real eyeopener, and the locals were so good about being photographed. I thought the journeys in the Tuk-tuks were very interesting, I will never view London traffic in the same way again. Seeing such different forms of transport that the locals use, was of real interest. I hope I managed to capture each one. Camel carts, Elephants, bikes, both push and motor, jeeps, trucks and minibuses, just to name a few .Each place we visited offered a new experience, and I will treasure all of them. Being able to embrace the culture, by dressing up or having a Henna Tattoo, was again a meaningful experience. Temperature’s were beyond anyone’s control, and it seems to have cooled down again now. However, the water provided was very welcome, which kept us all hydrated. Accommodation, was interesting, but always comfortable, and certainly Ana and I wont forget the Presidential Suite on the last evening. When they make the next Marigold Hotel film, I will feel part of it……..With your help I feel I learnt so much about my camera, and feel I can now use it with so much more confidence. The dynamics of the group worked so well together, and I miss their company. It was lovely to be able to ask for help from each other. I hope we get the opportunity to travel together again soon.

Thank you so much for giving us the most amazing experience. One which I will never forget!

After just three days back we are already craving the blue skies and colours of India. It was such a privilege to be with you all – and we really thank you for making it such a fun and unforgettable two weeks.

A huge thank you from Ed and I – it really was a great experience and one we will never forget. We loved the company, the varied experiences and the complete assault on the senses that make India so unique! Photographically it was great to have such a variety of people, landscapes, architecture, low light, animals etc. to work with.

Thanks Ashley for organising it so thoroughly along with Pradeep and you are so patient I must have driven you round the bend at times!  It’s never an easy task organising an event as the responsibility can seem enormous at times so thank you for taking it on as I don’t believe it could have been done much better it was the  most amazing trip to mark my 50th and images that are ingrained in my mind I hope, for a very long time.  I really don’t believe without the likes of a “Pradeep” a trip like that could have been completed in such time nor bettered he was absolutely invaluable and so knowledgeable
