TAJ AND BEYOND

Travel workshop to Agra & Fatehpur Sikri beyond Taj Mahal
Supported by GP Pro Camera Store, Olympus Pro India, Hama India, Creative Newtech & Lexar

About the workshop

The magical Taj Mahal comes to mind when we think of Agra, but the historical city has so much more to offer. The essence of this city can be found in its UNESCO World Heritage sites, old streets, food, people, architecture, daily life, rich history and culture, and several magnificent landmarks such as Mehtab Bagh, Agra Fort, Itmad-ud-Daulah (inspiration for the Taj), Red Taj, and Fatehpur Sikri.


Through a combination of photography and travel, this workshop will introduce you to the city from a new perspective. The workshop is designed to give individual attention to each participant, regardless of their level of photography practice or experience. We will have extensive discussions as well as daily review sessions. Participants will receive regular assistance with any photography questions or problems.

You may bring any camera or mobile device. No DSLR is mandatory.

Highlights

  • Olympus cameras to use during the workshop
