India is evocative of many images and colour seems to be a common element. Never is this more true than during the annual Spring festivities marking Holi. The locals refer to it as ‘Rang Leela’ which translates as ‘Colour Play’ and will often speak of ‘playing Holi’. There is a sense of joy, abandon and excess which plays beautifully and strikingly into the lens of any photographer. Join Matt Horspool & Terry Taylor on this once-in-a-lifetime photographic experience in India.

Accompanied by awe-inspiring landscapes that rival some of the best on the globe, sure to whet the appetite of any photographer.
I have just returned from the Colours Of India tour with Fotoworkshops and had the most amazing time. Glenn and his team were fantastic and so helpful with my "amateur" photo skills! Terry Taylor was incredible with his wealth of Indian knowledge and resources! I would also like to make a special thank you to Kieran who was so kind and helpful, always looking out for the "stragglers". It was a wonderful trip in every way with luxurious accommodation, endless photo opportunities, and a fun and interesting group. I can't wait to do my next Fotoworkshop tour!Hazel Steyn
I recently attended a two day Photoshop workshop in Mackay, it was fantastic. The Fotoworkshops team didn’t assume how much you know, they started at the basics, established a foundation of what you needed to know about Photoshop to use it then built on that foundation based on what the class wanted. They gave everyone in the class the opportunity of one-on-one tuition which is not all that common in group workshops. The workshop was kept light hearted and interesting that made the two day learning experience enjoyable. The highlight for me was at the end of each day you were able to sit down with the guys over a drink and talk about all levels of photography and they shared their experiences and knowledge with you.Well done Fotoworkshops. I would highly recommend everyone to give Fotoworkshops a go for an enjoyable and knowledgeable experience.David PhillipsMackay
What a fantastic weekend. I was a bit concerned at how the workshop would be catered for both beginners and advanced photographers. Well I need not of worried. They handled it beautifully. As a more experienced photoshop user, I found the content interesting, learnt different ways to approach techniques and a few new tricks. Next to me was a new photoshop user – through a little help he was able to pick up the steps relatively swiftly. This reinforced to me that this was indeed a workshop that had something for all levels of photoshop users. On the last day some of thought we would share some landscape photography at Shoal Point. Nature put on a lovely show for us, a beautiful way to end a fun filled weekend. Thanks Fotoworkshops – you did it againCheryl EagersMackay
I can highly recommend the workshops run by Fotoworkshops. I enjoy my Landscape Photography and I had been wanting to attend a workshop for some time. When I saw that there was a 2 day workshop being run on the Central Coast where I live I decided this was the one. They demonstrated simple and easy methods to process the images so you can get the most out of your photos. They explained the settings and controls on the camera to take stunning Landscapes. How to compose the shot to add depth and interest. They also told us about workflow, explaining ways to get the most out of the time you have to process your images. It was not just theory and photoshop either. We had 3 great practical shoots at various locations around the coast. All very photogenic places where they spent time with each of us showing us how to put the details explained earlier in the day to practical use. I considered myself a reasonable Landscape photographer, but after the workshop with Fotoworkshops I could see many areas where my skills needed improvement. I now find after doing this workshop my photography has improved both capturing and processing the image. I have even applied the knowledge I gathered to improve the shots I had already taken with new Photoshop techniques. In short this is the best money I have spent on my photography in some time. They has inspired me to greater levels and I am starting to see that inspiration paying off in my images. Thank You!AndrewCentral Coast
I attended a recent workshop and it was fantastic!! I was always scared of photoshop and thought it it was a program that was too in depth for me But after this workshop I now feel I’m confident enough to get in and edit my photos – if anyone is considering attending one in the future, I would say just get in and do it, you won’t look back!!Kim
