Then you have arrived at the right place. We are here not only to satiate your wanderlust but also to make you a better photographer.
Who are we?
The Pixel Ventures is an initiative by a few like minded photographers who are continuously in pursuit of light. Collectively, we have worked in the following areas of photography—Landscape, Wildlife, Macro, Astro, Aerial, Portrait, Street, Travel, and Wedding.
Yet, we have so much more to try out and learn.
You see, no two person sees alike. However, they can compose the same picture independently. And therein lies the beauty of this art form.
In the field of photography, you have to learn, try, experiment, go back to the basics, make mistakes, learn from them, and be ever curious, continuously. Most importantly, you have to take pictures, hundreds and thousands of them to hone your skills.
Will all the pictures you take be “keepers”? No, absolutely not! It is the pictures you delete that teaches you the most about photography. Because you will only delete a picture where there is a mistake. And you learn best from making mistakes but not repeating them.
So, embrace the bad pictures you take, identify the mistakes you have made, learn to correct them and implement your learning while on the field. Bad pictures will teach you to be a better photographer, provided you learn from your mistakes and not repeat them.
That’s our mantra, and we live by it.
What are we offering?
We would like to:
—share what we have learned over the years to help you capture stunning images.
—teach photography basics, composition, and creativity.
—help you become better at post processing by teaching you the tips and tricks of this art and science.
—hold workshops for aspiring photographers to help them better their skills.
—take you to locations you have never been or places you would like to go, but don’t know how.
—undertake product reviews on our blog that will help you make informed decisions while buying a photography gear.
—teach advanced photography—use of filters, creative use of shutter speed, astrophotography, etc.
Because our mentors are world class photographers and winners of many awards, accolades and recognitions. They will take special care of you during the workshops or photo tours. Their expertise will help you capture astounding, breathtaking, jaw-dropping pictures. You will run out of adjectives after the end of an event. Most importantly, you will have so much fun that you will come back for more. You can take that to the bank! Collectively, we will make your interactions with us the most memorable experience.
Our USP: Adventure photo tours
Having travelled on a few photo tours, ourselves, we know what works and what doesn’t work. We have first hand knowledge of challenges we may experience on the field and how to overcome them. We know the experience the participants desire and why not to cut corners just to make some extra bucks.
We also know that adventure photo tours are not same as going on a cruise. We will try to make your trip comfortable; however, there are times we all have to adjust to challenging situations, for e.g., sharing a bathroom or not taking a shower for a day or two. Or, when nature calls and you are in the middle of nowhere, then the middle of nowhere is your toilet. We prep you how to handle difficult situations and conditions. We will guide and counsel you every step of the way. We have the knowledge and the experience. Try us! The experience will leave a sweet taste in your mouth. 🙂
