    Marwari Horses of India (2021)

    This exciting new 10-day workshop is recommended for all equine and wildlife photographers looking for something a little different.

    The Marwari Indian horses are sublimely beautiful, elegant and known for their unique look and cute ears, that can rotate 180º and curve inwards so the tips meet. They can be different colours and have beautiful silky coats, making them very photogenic. We will capture them in and around traditional Havelis and outside with different backdrops.

    Whilst this workshop is focussed on horse photography, we have interspersed the shoots with a little local culture and we end the workshop celebrating the famous Holi festival of colour! We are also offering an optional extra day at the start to visit Old Delhi and an optional extra day at the end to capture the Taj Mahal – a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed!
