Since the pandemic KUONI restructured their business and are no longer offering the kind of specialist tours which I ran with them over a 5 year period. This page shows the kind of thing we did together and there are some links below to blog posts showing more detail. Many of the workshop participants came back to join me on following workshops and without their enthusiasm these trips would not have been half as much fun. If you are looking for tuition, from a bespoke 1-2-1 travel workshop to a 1/2 day tutorial, please get in touch.

My series of KUONI phototours offered something a bit different from the traditional photographic workshop. Designed to blend the best photo opportunities with great travel experiences, these tours were suitable for photographers and non-photographing partners alike. The level of photographic tuition was very much up to the individual. Some preferred to just do their own thing while others received extensive 1-2-1 advice. The main aim was that everyone had a great travel experience and ideally returned home with some amazing photographs.

Quotes from Workshop clients:

“Thank you once again for opening our eyes to getting photos through engagement rather than 'stealth'. It may not work everywhere but certainly gave a human glow to everyone's photos of India.”......Colin Ward

“The India photography holiday was awesome. Thank you so much to Neil Buchan-Grant for spending time to improve even our photography skills. Also to Vikram S Rathore, a guide with infinite patience and daily Indian 'proverbs'; and the madcap, wacky bunch of Kuoni travellers who wrestled with the crowds, traffic, sights, sounds and smells of India.”......Samantha Ward

"We had a fantastic time & met so many amazing people. The experience will stay with me forever"..... Debbie Roach

"Thanks for everything, especially for making it such a great trip. I think we both learned a lot!”.......Alan Dordoy
