Studio vB is pleased to announce their next travelling photography workshop to be in the moment and capture the spirit of a truly unique and magnificent event: the festival of Holi in India.

It’s a skill-enhancing workshop. And an unforgettable cultural experience.

Holi, (English pronunciation: /ˈhoʊliː/) is a spring festival also known as the festival of colours or the festival of love. The traditional Holi celebration starts days before the full moon Holi and it takes place in the neighbouring towns of Barsana and Nandgaon near Mathura. Thousands of locals congregate each year to witness a visual extravaganza. It starts with a spectacular, visually rich tradition.

The workshop will be a great opportunity to be right in the middle of a colourful tradition, to capture stunning visuals.  It is focused at a small group of 8-12 people mentored by industry veteran who grew up in India and understand the culture well.  There will be interactive training for attendees to hone your skills, learn new techniques, and most importantly, grab amazing shots.
