“Rome wasn’t built in a day” it is said. But the foundation stone sure must have been laid someday! This is the philosophy around which our Photography Workshops are based.
With Digital SLR camera’s becoming more affordable and popular by the day, a large number of people now have access to the technology. To assume then that the next step thereafter is to seek professional guidance on making the best use of this wonderful technology, is only logical . How many amongst us have at some point said to ourselves “someday i’d like to learn photography!” Yet that day never seems to come, does it? With the fast paced character of modern day life, making a medium or even short term committment to a hobby often seems impossible. Work pressure, family life etc. do not afford you the liberty of attending to your passion and hobbies day after day or even week after week in a continuous manner. Weekend workshops that need you to devote some time every weekend for X number of weeks pose a problem of uncertainity. What if you are travelling for work next weekend? What if you promised to take the family on that long overdue picnic next weekend? There goes that session! And weekday workshops for working people.. you’ve got to be kidding! The answer.. single day modular workshops!
Our workshops are conducted as 1 day modular workshops in stages, so you have complete flexibility to learn at your own pace and convenience. We conduct single day workshops each on basic photography, advanced techniques and specialities like studio & flash photography etc. These workshops are repeated at regular intervals. So you could attend a beginners workshop today and then an advanced one the next month or 2 months later and so on. And the learning doesn’t end with the workshop. Once you attend one of our workshops, you become a part of the community. Not only can you continue to interact with the faculty & other members on a regular basis thereafter via e-mail etc. but also participate in the periodic photography outings that we conduct for our members, thus facilitating community learning. Workshops are conducted in air-conditioned rooms with the aid of slide presentations. Live demonstrations are given at every step and every attempt is made to make the sessions as interactive as possible.

Can you really learn photography in a day? Then why do longer courses exist at all?
Like in all learning, in photography too there are varying levels of expertise one can attain. The amount of time you devote is directly proportional to the depth in which you can go with your knowledge of photography. So longer courses and workshops are definitely justified… especially if you would like to pursue it as more than just a hobby. Most of us however would like to pursue photography simply as a hobby and can devote very little time to it in day to day life thus making a medium or long term committment to a workshop / course difficult.
Our workshops won’t make you a professional photographer in a day! No workshops will ! But the idea is to equip you with all the basic knowledge and tools to facilitate and simplify self learning thereafter. And there are always our next level workshops that you can look forward to attending at your convenience, to take your hobby / passion to the next level.
Who should attend these workshops?
If you’ve always thought about learning photography but could never manage the time… this is for you!
If you’ve bought a DSLR or other camera and want to learn to use all its controls and settings for better creative control.. this is for you!
If you’re planning to buy a camera and want to make an informed decision and learn before-hand… this is for you!
If you want to learn to take better pictures regardless of the camera you use… this is for you!
Do i need to have a DSLR camera in order to attend a workshop?
No! You do however need to have a digital camera. Anyone with any kind of digital camera can attend our workshops and is guaranteed to have learnt enough by the end of the day to be taking better pictures with his camera. It would be prudent however to bear in mind that a DSLR camera would allow you to put 100% of what you learn, to good use because of the better creative control a DSLR offers you. If you use a compact / automatic / point & shoot camera, you may find your photography limited in certain ways, post the workshop. But then again it would be the perfect time to upgrade your camera… and it would be more justified, wouldn’t it !
