Life along the Ganges, a short essay


Harry Fisch

River Ganges India

A short photograhic essay on Varanasi and the mystical life along the Ganges. Varanasi is one of the oldest living cities in the world. The holiest of all pilgrimages. It’s the Jerusalem or Lalibela of India. The place where Budha himself came to teach. It was already known 2.500 years ago, before Rome had bekome known. It’s the only city that maintains the same traditions since the 6th Century B.C. In the ghats, along the river Ganges, between temples and shrines, you can feel the drama and beauty of life and death. This is were pilgrims from all over India come to worship and bath.

Photo tour to Myanmar, Inle Lake


Harry Fisch

Myanmar Photo Tour

Our boat sails along at full speed, in total darkness. It’s 4.30 a.m. in Myanmar, on Inle Lake. The engine roars and the occasional splash of water hits my face. I instinctively cover the bag that protects the cameras with my body. Another boat with three photographers and Nini-so –our guide – follows behind. We have been inside the channel for just over twenty minutes. The forecast indicates that at noon, in just a few hours, the thermometer will reach 90° Farenheit.

What to do with an umbrella at the Desert of Kutch


Harry Fisch

India Photo Tour

It’s a hot day. Waves of heat rise off the desert encampment as I sit on a shaded verandah with my generous host. Dhanraj Malik Prince, son of King Malek Shri Mahomed Mahomed Shabbirkhanji Azizkhanji, is a real personality here. Known for being both friendly and fair, he sits, resolving disputes between his subjects. Next to him, a worker from the salt pans holds an umbrella silently.

Photographing Varanasi at dawn


Harry Fisch

Varanasi Photo Tour

I have spent years traveling to Varanasi, India. From my particular experience it is one of the destinations that I consider the most unpredictable for a photographer. And yes, that’s were I will be, again on my next India Photo Tour. It is here where I took the photo that won (then lost) the first prize in the National Geographic Photo Competition in 2012, and where I took the photo that made me a finalist at the Sony World Photo Awards in 2013.

Some Ideas for People Photography


Harry Fisch

Namibia Photo Workshop

Travel photography inherently means interacting with people. If you are trying to photograph people, and thus photograph life in general, it is paramount to connect with your subjects. Not doing so is not only disrespectful to the subjects you want to photograph, but you probably won’t get what you want if you don’t form any kind of relationship.

8 Important Tips for your Next Travel Images


Harry Fisch

Joggler in Delhi

There is no rush. You don’t have to go off shooting like crazy. One photo a day is much more than the greatest photographers achieve when traveling. Don’t rush when shooting the photo: take your time to take a good photo rather than waiting for luck to achieve what you are not capable of doing calmly.
