Join Big Sista and Camera Story on this once in a lifetime immersive photographic residential in the oldest city on earth, Varanasi.

About this Event

Join professional photographers Jacqueline Warrick and Sarah Landro from Camera Story and Katrina from Big Sista Adventures on this once in a lifetime photographic residential in the oldest city on earth. This is a sista's only adventure, by women for women.

Your week will be packed with daily interactive workshops covering technical aspects of photography along with sessions on how to capture meaningful travel photos and develop ethical photographic narratives. We will be out and about creating images everyday and taking time for daily reflection and review sessions. By week’s end you will have a body of work that digs deep beneath the surface and expresses your unique creativity and eye.

The atmosphere of Varanasi is festive, and the ghats remain vehicle and shop free allowing peaceful walks as well as larger public prayers and ritual ceremonies. Our photographic practice will explore the areas of the ghats, the labyrinthine allies, and the history, people and culture of this great pulsating heartland. Ayurveda, Sanskrit, classical music and dance are all taught and practiced here. Varanasi is home to the Benares Hindu University and has a long association with the study of Indic and Buddhist thought. The Ganges River, most sacred of Indian rivers and a goddess in her own right, has been a place of worship, cleansing and pilgrimage for millennia.

By moving in a small group, and with our local friends, you will be taken into twisting laneways deeper and deeper within the city, places of legends (that will be told ), temples high above the Ganges and tiny cave like shrines below.

We will stay together in a peaceful, humble guest house on the banks of the Ganges River. The guest house is light and spacious with common sitting and dining areas. The rooms, each with a bathroom, are basic, fresh and comfortable. The guest house is beautifully maintained throughout.

Daily brunch, includes delicious home made yogurt, all the usual favorites and a few new ones too. Fresh fruit and herbal teas available across the day. Some other meals and light refreshments will also be included. There is a cook in the guest house and there are several restaurant options close by. The week will commence with a welcome dinner and special guests from a local music academy. Optional yoga is also available within the guest house in its own Yoga Shalla. Ayurveda consultations, remedies and massages are also available on request at an extra cost to the practitioner.
