  • I spent four amazing days with VS in Pushkar during the Camel Fair and Religious Processions as well as one day in Delhi photographing the iconic buildings there in November and December 2023. This were my most photographically rewarding days of experiencing Rajasthani culture and photography ever. VS was constantly focused on helping me get the best shots and the most out of my camera settings. I learnt a lot about light, composition, shooting with tilt screen upwards and downwards and the effects of different forms of white balance settings and VS pointed out many angles and subjects I would have totally missed. He was encouraging and 100% focused on my photographic growth yet allowing me the space to be creative in my own way. On all days, I hardly noticed the crowds of peak season in Pushkar as VS was so skilled at avoiding the crowds through his timed visits to get the best light and uncluttered scenes at each site. We did not only shoot camel herders, musicians and snake charmers and rural people but also an bathers and an Arthi at Pushkar Lake. VS was able to guide me through portraiture and candid moments which kept materialising before my eyes due mainly to the locals being so comfortable with him. With VS able to speak Marwari, it helped me to photograph people in a more natural way as they interacted with us. By the end of the five days it felt like travelling with an old friend. I would love to do it all again or do another photo tour with him at a different location. If you have limited time and want to seriously photograph Pushkar and Delhi, then I highly recommend going shooting with VS.He is a very critical teacher and demanding but you will definitely profit to a great extent from his photographic advice.
