I was in my India tour for the 1st time, and had been to Varanasi for three days. I hired Arun Saha, an Indian travel photographer and photo mentor through his website for my Varanasi coverage. I found in Varanasi with Arun Saha a complete different experience all over. Seeing Varanasi in a different perspective was the most satisfactory part there. Arun being himself a good street photographer and having thorough knowledge about Varanasi did real good justice to my photography tour. With him I could explore the streets, ghats and its street foods with a great deal. Hope to come out with a great series of my Varanasi adventure. Ciao!!!
It was an awesome experience to witness the colorful and vibrant Pattan Kodoli(Haldi) festival in Oct 2018. When I look at my pictures, I could still smell the turmeric powder and listen to the drums played in the temple.I should thank Arun Saha to organise this wonderful trip as he creates the friendly environment and make sure everyone is happy with their photography. Even after the tour, he is in touch with very responsive replies and helping on other photography related activities as well. Apart from all, Arun is the person with a good heart which i admire him. Looking forward to join with him in the future!
I’m Vishal Mohan from BFA first year at Techno India University. I just wanted to thank you for visiting and sharing your experiences and thoughts with us! You have changed the way I think about composing and have added a lot into my knowledge! Thank you very much once again and I will keep in touch with you for further guidance and help!
The trip with Arun Saha to Varanasi was very interesting .. because of his long experience and his relationships in the same place which was visited by him several times.. really I enjoyed the trip and got a lot of very interesting shoots.. I’m still editing those photos.. and use them in many competitions.. I wish to have other trip to India with the same friend Arun Saha for other places.. hope I could do that soon..
My trip to Varanasi way back in 2017 was the best photography trip ever I had around the world. Varanasi was the best for taking photo because of too much strong portraits photo you could have as well as the people’s lifestyle photo.. within few days you could get as much as you can.. the people in India in general are very friendly and open to take photo of them.. the life in India is very rich and the best for photographers.. during our trip to Varanasi with arun saha.. the work was very simple and easy and he helped a lot by his good relationships and experiences.. to make our trip successful and rich and unforgettable…
Thanks for him a lot…
It’s a pleasure to be connected with you and had wonderful experience in 3 work shops I participated. Still I’m feeling joyous to enhance the collection of good images I got during the workshops. Due to your mentor ship…l am happy that a photographer with a high skill and vision is my friend …..wishing you success in your journey towards the high goals.
During the end of 2016, I was considering of working on the numerous kusti akharas and the pehelwans of kolhapur, but unfortunately was not able to find an acquaintance in the vicinity. That was the time when one of my friend suggested the name of Arun Saha and after subsequent discussions, on one fine morning of early February of 2017, the lanky gentleman received me with his warm smile, which I never missed during the tour. We worked for next 4-5 days, and Arunda (as I called him) was always there to assist me for any problems.
We did the shooting remarkably well and that particularly was due to the local knowledge of Arunda. I was also taken aback by his remarkable knowledge regarding photography and the camera. Its always a pleasure working with a person who has profound understanding regarding the subject to be worked upon, and Arun Saha never fails on that front. What amazed me of him is his ever energetic readiness with which he responds to any kind of hurdles, be it regarding photography or logistics. And the most important thing about his nature is he is always open to new ideas. In that he’s ever attentive as an young schoolboy. What started as a mere photo tour, has now turned into a camaraderie to be cherished for our days to come. I wish all success to him in his photographic carrier. And personally I am eagerly looking to do another assignment with this ever enthusiastic brother of mine.
An amazing trip to a gorgeous out of the world and a must visit tourist place, “Land of High Passes……. LADAKH”. Well organised and brilliantly led. I thoroughly enjoyed my first Ladakh photography tour. As a team leader, Arun has incredible, detailed local knowledge of the area. He took us to some wonderful locations, some grand and spectacular, some more subtle; locations we would never have found by ourselves. He identified the times of day and the weather conditions that would allow us to make the most of each spot; he knew which locations were worth revisiting in different lights for different moods. He is generous with his photographic expertise and skills; patient and encouraging with his tips and explanations. He was good company, and it was a very amiable group that formed under his leadership. He found some excellent places for lunch and dinner; to sustain us throughout our days’ exertions in the open air. We packed a great deal into our few days, but he knew exactly how to modulate the pace of the trip so that we never became too exhausted to enjoy it or work effectively. Our hotel was a great base, with friendly owners, and it was perfectly located for our various trips around the locations. The trip was great fun..
