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.

Why Join Us for the Photography Tour? 

We will make your DREAM COME TRUE - your dream to witness the great festival and to capture them. We will also take some great portraits of the locals.

We will be going to the right places at the right time. I will suggest you the right settings for taking pictures and will personally assist you so that you go back with some great shots. We also do post-processing and feedback/review sessions whenever possible, during the tour.

Saurabh has been visiting these regions for almost a decade and has great knowledge about the place. 

You will also be in the company of some great fellow travelers and will make friends for life.
