Our expeditions are exciting, passionate, fun. They give us the chance to discover new worlds and friends through our craft.
Priority is given, when choosing accommodation, to proximity to the desired photographic location and contact with local people. This is not an extreme adventure, we normally stay at well-placed hotels, which allows us to reach the area of photography in a short time, and include amenities such as private bathrooms, air conditioning and/or fan. We try to get to every place at the best time of day, and this may involve the occasional early start. A day spent taking photographs can be long, but we will do our best to keep you on your toes, giving you new challenges that raise the bar for whatever your current photography level is.
We also organize Private Photo Sessions that are included in our Photo Tours : it could be anything from having ballerinas dancing in an abandoned palace, a fishermen in a lake with their petrol lamps, young monks in a temple in Myanmar, a priest in his church in Ethiopia…
Nomad tours are surprising and varied. We might find ourselves in a shipyard early in the morning for a few hours, photographing people as they work on immense wooden ships, then return to our hotel to enjoy a cup of tea while we admire a lonely beach and talk about the work we have just done. A short while later we make our way to a temple and its surrounding villages keeping ourselves busy into the afternoon documenting a weddings or celebration.
That night we could be enjoying tribal music in a camp, or reviewing our work on our computers. The following day we could go walking in a nearby city through a vast open air laundry, or through slums where another unimaginable life is lived. Or, have tea in a quiet moment in Varanasi, then go strolling through the ghats. Whether it is finding what lies beyond the kiosks down the backstreets of a city, or slowly crossing a river, to the side where no one ever goes, to observe the hustle and bustle of the city and tourists, a day with Nomad is different; it is real.
We could be in a shipyard where immense wooden boats are built early in the morning for two hours, photographing people as they work and then return to our hotel to enjoy a cup of tea while we admire a lonely beach and talk about the work we have just done. A short while later we are in a temple and its surrounding villages keep us busy for the rest of the morning and part of the afternoon documenting the life and watching weddings and celebrations.

The following day it could be a great city, walking through a vast open air laundry or through slums where another unimaginable life is lived. Or quiet moments in Varanasi, strolling through the ghats or slowly crossing the river to the other side where no one ever goes to observe the hustle and bustle of the city and tourists.
