The new tour of Tamil Nadu and Kerala takes place over Christmas and New Year and includes visits to Mamallapuram's famous shore temples, Gingee Fort, Arunachala, a great spiritual power centre, Tiruvanamalai's superb street markets and the Chinese Fishing Nets at Cochin.
Guests are encouraged to develop their own style and put together a portfolio of images documenting their journey, and the trip suits all levels of photographer.
The 16-day holiday, which departs 21 December, costs £2,380 per person including half-board accommodation, photographic tutor, light-room tuition, guides and local transport.
Other companies offering inspirational photography trips to India include Authentic Adventures, which runs a 13-night tour of Kerala taking in the Periyar Tiger Reserve, and Naturetrek's 12-night Indian Wildlife Photography Tour.
