Testimonials from the participants.

” I have, to date, attended three workshops which were organised by Vineet and Rohit Vohra in several Indian cities including New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Varanasi. The organisation, attention to detail and the practicalities of undertaking photography has without exception been first class. Vineet and Rohit both have intimate knowledge and understanding of the most appropriate locations and timings needed to capture exciting imagery. Above all their approach is one of guidance and support including the technical aspects of photography, selection of images and importantly, praise and encouragement. I can honestly say I have improved immeasurably as a photographer and benefitted from being part of a group of like minded individuals. I have already booked for Maha Kumbh in 2025 and would not hesitate in recommending their workshops”. Steven Bonati

“Taking a workshop with Vineet and Rohit is a transformative experience. The one to one instruction is unlimited and the attention to detail unparalleled. The ability to learn and grow as a photographer in an encouraging environment alongside others who share the same goals is not easily found elsewhere. I have built a community of friends while also learning to be a better photographer. I highly recommend both Rohit and Vineet for taking photography to the next level.” Stephaine Duprie Routh

“I appreciated how Vineet and Rohit structured the workshop so everyone could see an improvement in their work. Their lectures and feedback were clear, insightful and very helpful. I felt a considerable improvement in my photography in a short period of time. Thanks!” Faisal Fazalbhoy

“Vohra bothers are the ultimate artists of street photography. Their dedication towards this art and their sincere efforts to prepare us for street photography is indeed commendable. The sincerity they show and effort they put to educate us will only be returned with gratitude if we put our hundred percent effort and sincerity with determination to learn all they teach and practise how they advise us. Singapore workshop has been the most interesting session among all the sessions I have attended so far. Thank you VV and RV for coming to Singapore.
As William Arthur Ward said, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires”. Vineet Vohra and Rohit Vohra, you inspire us everyday. Keep up the great work.”  Mithu Chakraborty

“I’m glad that i managed to join this workshop and learnt a lot from you both. Your sharing and critique were excellent and rich in contents. Nothing sugar coated but straight to the points. Powerful technicality and skills aside, i love your kind reminders about shooting for ourselves not for ‘likes’, having fun and enjoying the process as the core of street photography. I have got so much to take away from the workshop but keeping the gratitude towards all of you – Vohra and workshop fellows! Thank you!” Kai Tan

“This workshop has opened my eyes on photography. I have read many articles on street photography but nothing beats observing the masters doing it in real life. I am so amazed that they can go so close to the subjects without them even knowing it. Truly fearless! I have learnt not to be afraid and just go with the flow. Seeking order in chaos. Finding something in nothing. Now all I need is just practise practise practise! The Vohra brothers are truly 2 of the best street photographers alive today.” Melvin Ho

“I have been starting Street photography since about 1.5 years ago, many shot was in Frontal Shot . When I get to know about APF workshop in Singapore, I made a quick decision for the Appointment without think twice.  On the way back to Jakarta, I talked to myself that I have found My Teachers, My Street Photography Teacher !!! Big Thanks to both of you, Sir !!! As Mentor, Vohra Brothers are Superior, Humble and Wise. All the Best to Vohra Brothers, please keep inspire us.” Evi Herlyna

“A good teacher shows the student what is possible and how to go there”. Vineet and Rohit are demonstrating that during the workshop! They always available with suggestions and even manage to track down wandering students to offer their insights. Thank you for expanding my photography horizons ! Shan Zhan

“At first, I joined the workshop expecting to learn the technical aspects of capturing street, and marrying these aspects with wedding photography work. While the past three days certainly provided that, what I gained was far more than that.I learnt that a successful street photograph will come with 99 other failures. I learnt to embrace what I like and shoot what-the-hell I want, the way I want. I learnt that the streets are brimming with potential and to see and feel more rather than keep shooting away. And I also learnt that to have good street photographs, I must simply have fun.It was mind-boggling to see such a diverse range of photographs even though we shared the same location. The refreshingly honest critique of the photos were also necessary if we want to improve, and I really appreciate that. I had a great time dissecting not only my photos, but also every participant’s, and it was super enriching. Thank you everyone (mentors included) and I had a wonderful 3 days learning from all of you!” P.s: Leica dream still far away :p”  Haolun Li

“Vineet & Rohit are beyond great photographers. They’re humble, honest and creative people who can show you the decisive moment that happens in between the busy bustle of life. Their workshops are a must do for anyone serious about street not just for the lessons, but also, for the connections you make with other like minded photographers.” Adhiraj Ghosh

” Time well spent at the workshop! The Vohra brothers are generous teachers of photography, thank you very much I really appreciate all that you have given. Their enthusiasm for the street rubs off on you. Whatever stage of photography you are pursing, they offered steadfast advice to everyone in the class such that every student was able to gain more insights into thinking about photography, and ways they can develop their craft further. You could not ask for more.”  Mindy Tan

maha kumbh by rohit vohra
@ Rohit Vohra

Kumbh” in its literal English translation means “Pot”, which emerged from “Samudra Manthan”(Churning of the Ocean) between Gods and Devils. The term ‘Mela‘ means “Fair”

In the mystical tapestry of India’s spiritual landscape, the Maha Kumbh stands as a rare celestial event, a confluence of faith, tradition, and humanity that occurs once every 12 years. Scheduled for 2025, this grand spectacle promises to be a pilgrimage like no other, drawing millions from across the globe to the sacred banks of the Ganges.

@ Vineet Vohra
@ Vineet Vohra

The Maha Kumbh is not merely a gathering; it is a cosmic alignment of rivers, rituals, and revered saints, where the spiritual energy is palpable in the air. The event is rooted in ancient Hindu mythology, symbolizing the churning of the ocean of milk for the elixir of immortality. Today, it represents a profound journey of self-discovery and devotion, attracting seekers and believers alike.

Maha kumbh mela by Rohit Vohra
@ Rohit Vohra

At the heart of the Maha Kumbh is the sacred dip in the holy river, believed to cleanse one’s sins and bestow divine blessings. Pilgrims and sadhus, draped in vibrant hues, create a kaleidoscope of devotion as they embark on this transformative ritual. The atmosphere resonates with the sounds of hymns, prayers, and the joyous clamor of divers cultures converging under the spiritual umbrella of the Kumbh.

@ Vineet Vohra

The 2025 edition is poised to be a photographer’s dream, offering a visual feast of humanity’s collective faith. From the intricately adorned sadhus with their ash-smeared bodies to the fervent chants rising with the smoke of sacred fires, every moment encapsulates the essence of devotion. It’s a rare opportunity for photographers to capture the raw, unfiltered beauty of a spiritual carnival that transcends time and space.

APF is organising a 8 day intensive workshop which is tailor made to cater to needs of anyone who wishes to train their eyes to find order in chaos of this years Maha Kumbh Mela held in Allahabad.

@ Rohit Vohra

Kumbh” in its literal English translation means “Pot”, which emerged from “Samudra Manthan”(Churning of the Ocean) between Gods and Devils. The term ‘Mela‘ means “Fair”

In the mystical tapestry of India’s spiritual landscape, the Maha Kumbh stands as a rare celestial event, a confluence of faith, tradition, and humanity that occurs once every 12 years. Scheduled for 2025, this grand spectacle promises to be a pilgrimage like no other, drawing millions from across the globe to the sacred banks of the Ganges.

@ Vineet Vohra
@ Vineet Vohra

The Maha Kumbh is not merely a gathering; it is a cosmic alignment of rivers, rituals, and revered saints, where the spiritual energy is palpable in the air. The event is rooted in ancient Hindu mythology, symbolizing the churning of the ocean of milk for the elixir of immortality. Today, it represents a profound journey of self-discovery and devotion, attracting seekers and believers alike.

@ Rohit Vohra

At the heart of the Maha Kumbh is the sacred dip in the holy river, believed to cleanse one’s sins and bestow divine blessings. Pilgrims and sadhus, draped in vibrant hues, create a kaleidoscope of devotion as they embark on this transformative ritual. The atmosphere resonates with the sounds of hymns, prayers, and the joyous clamor of divers cultures converging under the spiritual umbrella of the Kumbh.

@ Vineet Vohra

The 2025 edition is poised to be a photographer’s dream, offering a visual feast of humanity’s collective faith. From the intricately adorned sadhus with their ash-smeared bodies to the fervent chants rising with the smoke of sacred fires, every moment encapsulates the essence of devotion. It’s a rare opportunity for photographers to capture the raw, unfiltered beauty of a spiritual carnival that transcends time and space.

APF is organising a 6 day intensive workshop which is tailor made to cater to needs of anyone who wishes to train their eyes to find order in chaos of this years Maha Kumbh Mela held in Allahabad. Street photography is very rewarding but at the same time, one of the hardest genres to master.
