    Default Photography trip to North India looking for Kakis

    Looking for kakis to travel to North India on Jan 2007, tentatively from 13th to 21st.

    Please put your name down the list ONLY if you can make it for the trip or at least 90% sure you can.

    All members are welcomed to join but would like to keep the group relatively small and manageable. Maybe 8 or less.

    The trip would be from Sat to the following week Sun which will offer opportunities for both extensive people and cultural photography.

    Places in mind: New Delhi, Agra, Allahbad and Varanasi.
    Iternary: Will meet up to discuss further with photographers who are going.
    Budget: 1.2K
    Deadline: 2nd Dec 2006
    Visa: S$80
    Requirements for Visa
    1. Original passport valid for at least 6 months
    2. Correct visa fee
    3. Two passport size photographs (5 photographs in case of Pakistani Nationals)
    4. Supporting documents, where necessary
    5. Duly completed application form (Pakistani and Bangladeshi Nationals need to apply on special application forms)

    Confirmed going:

    Many Photographers dream to travel the world and take photos... But how many actually did it?

    Please note: This trip is designed for photographers in mind. Though non-photographer spouse/friends are of course welcome. Our primary objective are to take pictures of places in the best light, and this will often mean long days of both travel and shooting. You should be mentally prepared to wake up as early as 5am to catch the sunrise and travel long distance to see that special building. We might have to spend some time waiting for that right moment so be expected to stick to a place for a little longer than what most tour group do.
    You should therefore only consider joining this trip if you are a passionate photographer willing to put yourself out a bit. This is not a vacation sightseeing/tourist trip, but rather is an expedition designed for those who will do that bit extra to get the images they have been dreaming about.

    Agra should be able to fin cos that is home to the famous Taj Mahal.

    Varanasi is the oldest cities in the world. More than 3000 years old.

    Equipement wise, dun worry. We are amatuer too.. Just go and enjoy yourself.

    Updated with Visa info.
