About us

We curate the finest experiences for you bundled up in specialized itineraries for cultural and religious festivals as well. We ensure your comfort and a seamless itinerary and logistics, so all you have to worry about is taking that perfect shot (and having a good time)!

 

Eastbound Photo Tours are for people who enjoy photography, travel and exploring unique cultures. Our carefully curated photographic expeditions take groups to stand-out destinations throbbing with energy and life. We believe that in order to enjoy the best photography tour and frame-worthy shots, one must 'experience' the place -- which is how our tours are focused and built.  

 

Our carefully designed tours are off the grid and will not be found in any run of the mill brochures. They are backed by an excellent network of our own affiliate offices, tour operators and guides – so we own the trips we sell. A pre-scouting trip and a test run is always done before the actual tour starts to ensure thorough execution.

 

All our trips have an element of guided and constructive feedback sessions, specific staged shoots to practise, private critiques and instruction sessions and sure-fire tips to help you get quality images.

 

For added flavor and ambience, during the trips we will dine family-style at a mix of local and high-end restaurants to give you a feel of the local spices and cooking styles. We will stay at a combination of boutique hotels and lodges that will again give you a real feel of the area’s hospitality. When you go back home, you will ‘know’ the place you have been to, with images that will stand out in every way.
