Overview

For over 12 years, I have worked with world-famous photographers and documentary makers arranging their experiences to provide amazing images around India, with a specialty in the complex, chaotic and exceedingly magical City of Lights, Varanasi - the holiest city of India.
Over this time, I have found that the mobile phone camera provides remarkable accessibility to the people on a more instant, comfortable, and humane level. Together, we will find out how to take photos of the holy men, everyday lives of workers, markets, industry, street scenes and the citizens of this incredible and diverse culture. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with those who are interested in learning to create beautiful images, whether you are a professional photographer, or a camera enthusiast or hobbyist.

Itinerary

You’ll learn and practice engaging with human subjects, identifying composition issues (light, focus, colors themes, distance from subject, background) I’ll take you to streets filled with everyday life (cooking, goods transport, play, education, construction, spiritual practices) We’ll share what worked and what didn’t in our mobile phone photography.

Manoj is the guide and fixer you need in Varanasi. He leads you to places and people you cannot imagine and helps you discover your photographic limits! Thank you Manoj!

I’ve just spent a wonderful afternoon in the company of Manoj Fixer and Photographer here in Varanasi. I’m a keen amateur photographer with everything to learn about using my mobile phone - currently iPhone 8+. So, I booked with Manoj as he promised locations and characters that I’d never encounter on my own. It’s so easy to get lost in the lanes! I was not disappointed. From the outset he corrected my grip and we explored the capabilities of this camera phone. He had to keep checking my “bad”habits but that’s exactly the sort of tuition I needed! Mostly we shot portraits, in portrait mode to obtain a shallow depth of field. His well chosen backgrounds and light ensured that the subjects stood out / or with some he illustrated how to frame the subject to include her/his environment. Good tips and guidance regarding composition, eg moving around your subject. Throughout the session I learned how to approach people from Manoj ‘s example. I learned also how to direct my subjects. There were several highlights , including the two hour boat ride with a Sadu which was so much fun as well as producing some super images. Manoj is a charming young man, courteous, warm and happy to share his feelings and experiences. His years of expertise as a fixer were clearly evident too. Very professional from the moment I booked and I really appreciated his personal contacts via what’s app before we met up. He delivered all that was promised and “delivered” me safely back to my hotel in the evening. I would have loved to have spent another day with Manoj! Highly recommended!*****

I was on a 5-day, one-on-one private tour with Manoj in Aug 2019. I immediately felt like I was traveling with a friend. Not only was he punctual, reliable, energetic and conversational with the local people - he was also very patient, light-hearted, and accommodating. He was very compassionate toward my needs throughout the five days to make the often chaotic and very HOT August days as comfortable as possible! This was my third trip to Varanasi & every day was full of beautiful NEW experiences & sites/sights I had not seen before.

We had a great time with Manoj who took amazing photos in the streets of Varanasi. He showed us places that tourists don’t usually see. Highly recommend him.

I signed up for 5 days of mobile phone street photography workshop. Without being pedantic, Manoj brought me to several backstreets of Varanasi India where there were many people doing laundry, construction work, selling vegetables and fruits,chatting, worshiping.. he showed me how to hold the camera, and common and obscure camera functions. We had fun, and ended up with outstanding photos. Manoj is intuitive, relates well to all cultures, and uses a mobile phone himself for street photography..
