Ramanagara/Dandeli/Hampi/Light painting workshop/Kabini/Pulicat/Tadoba

I came across Camera Shutter Up(CSU) by chance and have been happy to be doing photography workshops and travel with them over the past few months.
The workshops are hands-on and informative and for the most part techniques you can try at home and with a not-so-expensive camera as well.
Wildlife happens to be their forte but their workshops are on an array of subjects like portraits, light painting, astro, travel and landscape amongst other genres.
The travel trips have been fun and budget friendly and yet hygienic, cleanliness and comfort have never been compromised.
So far, iv done a trip to Ramanagara, Tadoba, Hampi and Pulicat and Iv had the best time in all of them.
Harsha and his dad are camera savvy and never hesitate to teach you techniques of photography which one can't learn in a classroom.
Look forward to many more trips and workshops and would defintely recommend it for people who want to learn photography in depth

Online composition workshop

online composition session was very innovative and effective use of lockdown time and the technology, all the sessions were very interesting and some session went beyond midnight. since it was on WhatsApp we can revisit the discussions. photo reviews were very effective and thought provoking.

Water drop photography - Mar 2018, Javadi Hills - May 2018; Dandeli Birding - Feb 2019, Pulicat birding - Jan 2019

Did a weekend tour with Camera Shutter Up to Tada waterfalls and Pulicat Lake on Republic Day weekend. Trip was well organized, with breaks/pit stops whenever needed. Stay at resort was fine, with fun and games, as well as good food. Nice to meet photographers from previous trips, and made new friends too! Got beautiful photographs of water birds, especially Pink Flamingos at Pulicat Lake. Lunch was organized on an island in middle to lake: Nice to relax in nature! A budget-friendly trip, looking forward to future events!

3rd Anniversary Trip (Kabini backwaters)Workshop on water drop refraction, pattern portraits.

I happened to get introduced to Harsha purely by chance. And it’s one of the best things to happen. I’ve started learning photography in a fun way. And have gained belief that I too can click!
Both Mr Narayanawamy and Harsha are awesome as teachers. They’re down to earth, unassuming and extremely knowledgeable. And ever willing to share what they know. The trips organised by Camera Shutter Up put learning and fun at the forefront. And they are worth a lot more than you would ever pay! I can’t wait to do more trips and workshops with them. And many of the friends I’ve made through them.

I have done multiple trips with them. If you have interest in photography and want to have a different travel experience, they are the best.
Few points below:
1. Well organized
2. Pocket friendly
3. You don't need to think about anything, all has been taken care of already
4. Always ready to help if u have any query
5. Friendly atmosphere
6. Safe and fun for solo travelers
7. Very neatly done itinerary
8. Not to be mentioned you will learn a lot about photography if u are a beginner like me, traveling with a well known wild life photographer has some advantages 😄
