Fame, a £2,000 prize — and a stunning image for a client on our Ladakh photo tour

One of our clients on this trip, Anthony Skidmore, has just let me know that a photograph he made on that tour (click thumbnail right) walked away with the top prize in Round 6 of the 2012 Photographer of the Year competition run by Practical Photography, Digital Photo and Photo Answers magazines.

Photographing Ladakh & Kashmir

High on the Himalayas

A Travelshooters client shares photos and conversation with a Ladakhi family.

One of my stand-out memories in a busy 2012 was our Ladakh photography tour. Photographing Ladakh was just an amazing experience: the region is spectacularly beautiful and the way the mountain weather plays shadow-games with the landscape beneath makes for some stunning photographic opportunities.

The team of photographers that assembled for this photographic tour of Ladakh was amazing too.

Photographing the lacquerware-makers

A family welcome as we enter the home of the Burmese lacquerware makers.

The broadband is a bit on-again, off-again and none too swift but hey, this is a gorgeous backwater in the Shan State of Burma and only the fact that it’s late at night excuses my sitting in an hotel room when I could be out photographing Myanmar.

Clients say…

"I didn't expect the landscape photography to be so good! It blew me away how different it was every day from place to place. Sridhar gave more guidance and help than any Shoot Photographer I've been with.
