Festival Photography and Culture Photography Tour Kerala, India
Theyyam is one of the most colorful and intense festivals/worship that happens in the northern part of Kerala around Kannur. It's a great experience to witness and photograph the festival.
Theyyam is one of the most unique festivals in India. It is celebrated in the northern part of Kerala around Kannur. At one time, it was a part of almost every household but is now limited to a few.
This festival offers great photographic opportunities. The timings of the Theyyams can be a little odd. Sometimes we shoot all night and then freshen up for another shoot in the morning. We really have to push our limits in this tour.
Of course, the rewards will be many. You can get some amazing portraits of the theyyam performers while they are getting ready and also during the performance.
